Picking Out All the Stars That We Like

August. This August brought soccer, school shopping, school starting, and my sister dropping off her daughter (my niece) at college.  They made a family trip out of it because they live in another state, so I got to hang with them a little bit.
We went to the Spiral Jetty at sunset, so we could look at the stars.  It was amazing.  I took a bunch of pictures. Maybe too many pictures.  I think I will have to break their visit into more than one post...

 The first thing I saw when I got out of my car was this little guy.
He should be famous.

 This is the Spiral Jetty!

 All the kids immediately started heading for the Great Salt Lake.

 Ben and Jayden walked the spiral.

 That's Kurtis on the left and a bunch of the kids on the left.

 My sister and my niece.

 My nephew.

 Footprints in the salty sand.

 A dead bird!

 Kaleb and my nephew.

 Zach and Kurtis.

 Two more of my nephews and their neighbor who also needed to be dropped off at college.

 Riley and Emily (my other sister).

 It's beautiful.

 And the water looked pink.

I tried to take a photo of the stars, but it didn't really work. But if you click on this picture an make it larger, you will see something.
I love looking at the sky, the stars, the moon, the clouds.  It's beautiful.  It's never the same.  You can't just say, "I'll watch the sunset tomorrow.  It's always the same."  Because it isn't.  And it's amazing every time.

And now for your listening pleasure:
One of my favorites.
