Swimm ing with Sharon

This coming weekend, July 31, There will be a Ray Rasmussen Family reunion.  Lorna and her family have organized this get-together.  Fortunately, and unfortunately, the water pump on Lorna’s car went out on the freeway near Honeyville, Utah.  What that meant, was lat night I got to spend the evening with Lorna, Sharon and her daughter, Pauline, her husband (sorry, I am not good with names), and lots and lots of grandkids.  They camped at Crystal Hot Springs in Honeyville.

First we needed food.  Here is Lorna and Sharon pushing the grocery cart together.  See, I even brought my recycle bags.

We went to the local thrift store hoping to find swim suits, but no such luck.  All they had were 2-piece suits, and I am not going there, let alone Sharon.  I could not resist a couple of pop-up books for Sharon.  One is Noah’s Ark, with all of the animals.  The second book was a giant book with Warner Brother cartoon characters as babies.  She loved both.

Polly’s husband grilled chicken for us.  It was the best ever.  Next time they come, I am going to get them to bring a couple of bottles of that sauce.  Dinner could not have been better.

Then we went swimming.

Polly and her husband are so great with Sharon.  They helped her “swim” around the pool most of the evening.  Jessica, Morris’ daughter, also took took Sharon a lot.  They went into the cooler pool and swam and bounced for quite some time.  I think Sharon enjoyed it more that me, which is great.

At the end of the evening Jessica’s husband helped Sharon out of the pool.  They were standing there enjoying a moment when I rushed over for this picture.  He is such a great kid.

Sorry about the names, I should have written them down.  But I didn’t.  But I could not wait to do this post.
