My long vacation started with a family reunion in Moab. My mom's brothers and sisters (and families) get together every other year for a long weekend. I've missed the first two reunions, but since Mom was in charge this year, she let me know early that I needed to get it on my calendar, and I'm very glad I did.

It was great to see my aunts, uncles and cousins (some, I'm embarrassed to admit I hadn't seen in many, many years.) I loved watching my cousins as parents and my aunts/uncles as grandparents, and I loved seeing that family resemblance that runs through the generations.

As I neared Moab on Thursday I felt an amazing sense of peace settle over me as I realized that for the next two weeks I wouldn't have to worry about work, that for that period I could just enjoy the time with my family and with myself as I explored new parts of the world and recharged my batteries.

Here are a few pictures from the trip, as usual little Maggie, the original "Beautiful Girl" was the centerpiece of our trip.
