Family Statues

Last Sunday, (April 9th), we went up to the Adonis Bronzeworks in Alpine to celebrate Uncle Arval's 90th birthday. It was great to see all the relatives, meeting many of them for the first time. It was also fantstic to see the wealth of family history materials on display: multi-generational photos, books of rememberance, newspaper clippings, personal history stories, etc. Mommy is planning on getting copies of many of these things, to share with all at the Pearson/Streadbeck Reunion in Sandy in July.

While at the Bronzeworks, we took the opportunity to look at many of the sculptures on display. As we circled the display room, I heard Buddy exclaim, "HEY! It's me!" And then he ran up to this sculpture, and gave it a big hug.

And then Mimi had to give him a hug, too. They found a cute little friend!

They also enjoyed running around outside, climbing on the large lion sculpture, and looling at all the others. It was a very fun evening.

I love the bronzeworks! It's so fascinating to see what goes into creating sculptures, and it's such a beautiful setting. I'm glad ya'll had such a great time!

Wow what a fun field trip. I bet none of the "real preschools" get to go there.
