7 Year Old Prodigy

Still catching up from last week's adventures, here are a few scenes at our family graduation party. Since Jerry and I were busy socializing, we handed over the camera to seven-year-old cousin Alexie. Her mom and maternal grandfather both do great photography, and it appears this little girl has caught the bug as well. Thanks for all the fun photos Alexie!! Unless otherwise stated, all pictures were taken by her:

Candid shot of Great Aunt Bertella getting loved by a niece and nephew. We are so glad Bertella could make it, as health problems sometimes keep her at home.

Jerry got swarmed by children all night long. In the background is Uncle Keith talking with Duan, our Chinese friend. She is a visiting professor to BYU, and we feel honored she could come to our party.

When Lexie directed our arrangement for this shot, she tried to make Jerry and Duan be a couple. I quickly wedged myself in the middle there, and we all got a good laugh out of it.
This picture Lexie took of her Grandpa Myron is charming because the short stature of the photographer is evident by the view angle.

And here is one Jerry caught of Lexie herself (in pink), a rare moment when she was off camera duty and playing a game with another cousin.

Jerry also took this last picture. We had relatives there from both my mom and dad's sides; this is my dad (middle) with his sister and her husband.
Jerry and I have been so glad to have lots of relatives in the area, and we were astounded at how many showed up to our little graduation get-together. Thanks for coming, everybody!
