The Extended Paris/Moorman/Duche Family in Indio
Crouching: Oliver Moorman and Hilary Paris Moorman
Standing: Jennifer Duche, Me, Lori Paris, Ely Moorman, Dan Paris, Joseph Moorman
Just to get the relationships straight:
- Dan Paris is my younger brother. He is married to Lori Paris.
- Jennifer Duche is Lori’s daughter from an earlier marriage.
- Dan’s daughter from an earlier marriage is Hilary Paris (and therefore my niece).
- Hilary Paris is married to Joseph Moorman with two sons, Oliver and Ely.
- I just happened to wander into the picture.
Ours is a widely diverse family, including anti-vaxxers, a Trump supporter, a Yoga instructor, a Seattle Parks & Recreation employee, two Hungarians, a Master Builder, a travel specialist, and me—perhaps the strangest one of all.
Joe and Hilary rented an Air B&B house in Indio, California, where most of the get-togethers were held.
In addition to family stuff, I saw the new James Bond film (No Time to Die) and liked it, and I visited the Living Desert Zoo in Palm Desert, where I took pictures (which you will sample in the coming days).
The weather was a bit on the cool side, with a wild and windy rain squall on my final evening in the desert.
