The weekend I was in New Mexico happened to be Memorial Day weekend, so I thought it'd be a great idea to go visit my Grandma just north of us in Colorado for the day. I also thought it'd be appropriate to visit a cemetery full of my ancestors on Memorial Day. It was a bit windy, but it was a good trip.
Here is Joshua with his great great grandma (my dad's mom's mom) Ethel Gertrude Mickelsen Thomas.
This is a picture of all of us (except my mom...taking the picture) with Ethel. It's a 5 generation picture!
Here is my Grandpa Christensen who passed away 2 1/2 years ago. There is a spot reserved for my grandmother as well. I think my parents have a spot reserved just next to this, too.
We got someone to take our picture so we could all be in it. Left to Right: Mommy, Grandma, Uncle Wayne, Daddy, Joshua, Me, Daniel.
Here is a picture of my dad and Uncle Wayne with my Uncle Francis who died before I was born. If Uncle Kent were there, this would be the 4 boys.
On the way back to my grandma's house, we noticed some funny looking cows. I think they're yaks!
Of course while we were there Daniel had to pull out the riding lawn mower and take it for a spin.
And here he is with his great uncle Francis.
