This past weekend the descendants of Dorothy and Virginia Smith, of Utah, met up in Boulder, Colorado. It is so neat to spend time with family you rarely see, there's a feeling of knowing each other that never seems to go away, even if it has been a decade since the last reunion. I can still picture how much Ben F. adored Josh when he was a little guy, even though it was 20 years ago that we were all together in the living room on Edgewood.
We explored, hiked, drove through a herd of elk, complained about the altitude, and drank yummy beer. New favorite sounds: Susie laughing at Ben's jokes, Ben laughing at Susie's jokes. New observation: Meliss and Susie may be the most cheerful, optimistic people I've ever known.
The Maximon girls have really long legs. Some genes persevere, it would seem. Lucky us.
