Saturday my mom's cousin's got together for a Staheli Family Reunion. Darrell wasn't able to join us, since he worked on Friday, but I was so glad that I was able to get a chance to go! One of the highlights for me was going to Holt's Ranch to visit the Family Cemetery. Here, I got to see my great-grandparents graves, Bartlett and Lillie Farnsworth. (And lots of other distant ancestors as well) Steven had a lot of fun, and was glad to have his Grandma and Grandpa there, so he didn't have to be surrounded by complete strangers. It was fun to have a few of his cousins there as well!
In the middle of the party, while all the kids were playing on the big waterslide, the weather became dark, and thunder started booming! Then it started to hail, pour, and the torrents came! Luckily, we were in a big pavilion, and everyone huddled to the middle. Steven had a lot of fun saying "BABOOM" every time he would hear the thunder.
Hayley and Kaitlyn were freezing from being wet. They sure are cute!
On the way back, we stopped in the Enterprise Cemetery to see the grave of my grandma's parents, Belle and Le Roy Staheli (It was their descendents having the get-together)
Some cute pictures to finish off....Grandpa and Steven reading books Saturday night at bedtime
Steven loved Grandpa's slippers

Are you related to Ronald Staheli who directs incredible choirs at BYU?
Congratulations!!!! I found out from Kimberly. Hope you are feeling all right.
We sold the home and will be just down the street a block, on the same side of the road when Karolyn and Kyle speak at their homecoming on the 30th of August.

You're a Staheli? Do you know Dave Staheli? In his 30's, dad was like President Hinckley's secretary or something?
