My Grandpa

This is my wonderful grandpa.
I love visiting him in Delta, UT and going fossil hunting with him. This picture was taken in 2002 on one of our excursions.
I think he looks so cute in his overalls and cowboy hat.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my grandpa. I love it because it captures one of his many daily tasks. He is a widower living alone in his home in Delta, UT. At the time of this picture he was 84 years old--today he is 93 and is active as ever, and still takes care of his garden and home. He's an amazing man and I loved following him around for a day taking pictures of him doing his daily chores.

I love my grandpa!


  1. Is that last picture a recent one? You look positively RADIANT!! Either it's the glow of pregnancy, or you are permanently the most beautiful person EVER! :)

  2. I love those really! I keep wanting to go and take pictures of my old Bishop on his motorcycle, and these have inspired me. I really need to do it. I am glad he was able to model for you so effortlessly. My fav? The bed amazing Krisi!

  3. I can't believe that Grandpa actually let you photograph him!! Those are great.... Did you ever get that original photo of Grandpa in Gandy Cave from your dad?
