Everyone but Littlest Dude ...
The relatively short drive thru this canyon was stunning. And almost no one was there. And at this point all Kellers were healthy. This was before we ate at quite possibly the world's dirtiest Taco Bell in Cedar City, UT. And Middle Dude woke up, throwing up. So not fun. But, hey, it wouldn't be a Keller roadtrip without vomit. sigh.
ps. just to restate things succinctly: we DO recommend Kolob Canyon. we do NOT recommend Taco Bell in Cedar City. the end.

I've got this in one hand:
I've got this in the other hand:
Big Dude's got his hands full:
Even Eldest Dude has his hands full:
And we've already seen some gorgeous, GORGEOUS scenery!
Life is good. (but the color on my laptop is not, so travel pics are pretty much SOOC, til I can edit again at home).

Awake as in the days of old, the generations of long ago.
Was it not Thou who cut Rahab in pieces,
Who pierced the dragon?
Was it not Thou who dried up the sea,
The water of the great deep;
Who made the depths of the sea a pathway
For the redeemed to cross over?
So the ransomed of the LORD will return,
And come with joyful shouting to Zion;
And everlasting joy will be on their heads.
They will obtain gladness and joy,
And sorrow and sighing will flee away.
I, even I, am He who comforts you.
Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies,
And of the son of man who is made like grass;
That you have forgotten the LORD your Maker,
Who stretched out the heavens,
And laid the foundations of the earth;
That you fear continually all day long because of the fury of the oppressor,
As he makes ready to destroy?
But where is the fury of the oppressor?
The exile will soon be set free, and will not die in the dungeon, nor will his bread be lacking.
For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and its waves roar
(the LORD of hosts is His name).
And I have put My words in your mouth,
and have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
to establish the heavens,
to found the earth,
and to say to Zion, "You are My people."
Isaiah 51: 9-16

I really like to get some of my photos living somewhere outside the computer. (for anyone wondering, I print our family album thru My Publisher. The price is super reasonable and I'm satisfied with the quality). Also, in the way of getting pictures outside the computer, I just finished a HUGE canvas print order and Big Dude got busy hanging everything up. I'll share those pictures soon ...

For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His... 2Chronicles 16:9
O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13
The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good. Proverbs 15:3
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
"For I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them..." Ezekiel 11:5
If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,"
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. Psalm 90:8
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
"You are the God who sees me..." Genesis 16:13
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:5

5 months later… (here they are 5 months ago)
She’s adored and loved …
She’s exuberant, elated, energetic…
It’s all just unspeakably beautiful.
And speaking of the beauty of new families, especially adoptive families, I still have openings for my two sessions benefitting two adoptive families who are bringing home sons from Ethiopia. All the proceeds from these two sessions go straight to these adoption funds AND include $500 savings for the booking party – win win for everyone :-).Email me for specific pricing details and session date availability.
