Let's meet the
Annette and Larry
enjoy traveling with Annette's parents, Bill and
Nancy. On the right, we're exploring Cade's Cove
in Smoky Mountain National
- We also like to meet
Annette's younger sisters in exciting vacation locations.
Below on the left, you'll find Annette and Allison at the
Mount Saint Helen Volcano. On the right below, Annette
and Arrion are enjoying a rowdy game of mini-golf in
Estes Park, Colorado.
- Because Bill and Nancy
are involved in our publishing business, we look for
excuses to make our meetings interesting. We often
brainstorm ideas for future projects as we're traveling.
In the case on the lower left, we're driving down the
Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. The picture on the
lower right is a more formal shot taken after a wedding
last fall in Oregon.
- We try to get together
once in the fall and then at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
The pictures below show Arrion and her boyfriend Ben at a
gathering during Christmas 1999. On the lower right,
you'll notice that our family is known for getting a
little silly particularly at Christmas time. We enjoyed
unwrapping and racing to assemble our legos as part of an
annual goofy gift game that Annette enjoys
- Since the
Smith family is spread out across the United
States, we don't find time for as many
face-to-face visits as we'd like. On the
other hand through the phone, email and
websites, we can easily keep in
- Our "life on the road"
has made it possible for us to visit family. Below on the
left, Annette and Allison played a "You Don't Know Jack"
computer game when visiting in Tucson. Sometimes people
like to visit us. The picture on the lower right shows
Bill and Larry at our campsite in the mountains north of
Asheville, North Carolina.
