S: Roberts Family Memories -2012
BC: of 2012
2: 11 YEARS OLD! Tyler, Not surprisingly you asked for an army cake this year. You love anything ARMY. Dad and I looked for a B-52 bomber model airplane like the one Grandpa Gurr flew as a gunner in World War II. We didn't find one exactly the same but we got something close. You and dad spent lots of hours together putting together your model airplane. Daddy and I sure love you, Son!

6: In memory of Zachary on his and Aftyn's birthday we donated baby boy blankets to the hospital where they were born. This is something that we plan to do each year as a way of remembering our little one. It was a rewarding experience and both a happy and sad day. Mostly happy, because we have a darling baby girl to love and cherish and a precious baby boy to remind us of our heavenly home. | Zachary's 1st Birthday

We had a lot of fun as a family including playing at the park, visiting a pioneer village, playing at Trafalga, and of course...Remembering Zachary. The next few pages with be dedicated to our weekend of fun. Because I recently purchased a new camera I've been taking tons of pictures. The best way I can think of to highlight all our fun is to make a separate page for each child. There are just too many pictures of my cute kids to choose from! I am one lucky momma! Love you all so much!

72: Grandma Gurr passed away on June 1, 2012. Her funeral was held on June 8th in Elko, Nevada. Several family members had the flu that day, which made traveling very interesting to say the least. Despite the sad occasion and the illness we still managed to enjoy one another's company and have a nice day. These pictures were taken on the way home from Nevada at the Utah Salt Flats. The cousins had a great time exploring together. It was a beautiful little place to stop and rest as the sun beamed through the clouds just before sunset. I think this picture is a great memorial to the day we said goodbye for a time to Grandpa Helen Gurr.
