I adore these kids. (Photo overload from a proud grandma.)

Last week we spent a week in St. George, Utah with three of our four daughters and their families. All the adults are vaccinated (and several had covid earlier) and we felt safe staying in a large home together. The house belongs to my son-in-law's parents. They bought it as a vacation home to share with their family. My son-in-law invited us all to spend spring break there with them. We felt very blessed to be able to go. The house has a gorgeous pool and hot tub, as well as other yard activities for the kids to enjoy. I had fun taking photos of the kids both at the house and on our activities. I thought I would share a glimpse of the 12 grandkids we had with us. I love my Z cameras. Most of these were with the Z6 with either the 50 f1.8 S lens or the 85 f1.8 S lens. Those are currently my two favorite lenses.

Wish I could wave my magic wand and be back there with all of them.

#1 Playing tetherball.. This sweetheart is 14 now and growing up so fast. She is an athlete and played 8th grade basketball this past season.

Such a nice series. No overload whatsoever!

I bought my Nikon 50mm S to mount on my Z6 camera specifically because I saw your photos of the children taken with it. Then the pandemic hit and I've yet to take a photo with it because I've been able to see the young niece and nephews only two very brief times. I can't wait to get back to photographing them.

Terri, please feel free to overload us with photos any time!
I can always count on coming away with a smile and a warm, family feeling every time you post your photo of the grandkids.
And what kind of weather do they have in St. George that the pool is open already? Wow! That's wonderful!

Wait - did you say that the twins are 14??? :eek: That cannot possibly be. That simply cannot be true. Where did the time go?

These are fantastic photos and I loved seeing pictures of your grandbabies!!

Charming family photos.
Thank you, Mike!
Cute pictures all. I'm glad you could enjoy some of our fine weather here in St. George.
Thank you, Gordon. You live in an amazing place. There is so much to do.

Hopefully you will get a chance to use it soon. It’s such a great lens!

Isn't it amazing how quickly these kids grow up? Many of us here remember when the older kids were much younger and smaller than the current smallest kids! It looks as though everyone really had a great vacation together!
It’s kind of scary how fast time flies by. Before I am ready for it, they will be gone from home.

Great photos, our kids and grandkids are our greatest and most precious possessions!
Than you! I agree 100%!
Great photos!
Thank you!
What fun!!! You must have been in your glory!
It was a special time, Mitch. Luckily camping season is coming up and we have several trips planned together.

Isn’t it scary, Lyndee, that they are getting so big. They are fun at this age.
