Nielsen Family Reunion 2013

Well, it’s not the way I imagined this post looking..I had planned on having more pictures of people and events, but due to Jacob’s scary high fever, we were cooped up indoors quite a bit. When we were around the family I was holding him; he didn’t want to be apart from me for an instant. So these are the pictures I could get on a hike and walk around Coloma. IMG_2221

So much cool moss. Am I weird that I find it so interesting?? This (above) might even be an air plant. Super cool.IMG_2228

Beautiful, right? But don’t touch! Yikes…

Josh’s Aunt Shelly and Uncle Luis are performing a flag retirement ceremony. It’s a really neat thing to experience if you haven’t. A worn and battered flag is ceremoniously turned over to the flames. The ashes of the flag are buried in a special spot as well, so that every bit of the flag’s life is full of respect.
