Family Weekend in Pictures...

Whew!  That was either a tornado or the family was all here for four days. I'm too tired to give you all the details, so here's our family-time in synopsis:

There were airports

and games of pool

and B-B guns

  and bows and arrows.

We had craft time

and bon fires,

 a hayrack ride

and a scavenger hunt (first one home wins).

We roasted hot dogs

and laughed

and did things we won't tell Mom.

There was shoe shopping cause the dog ate his shoes,

and performances of Swan Lake?

No - just duck feet made from tube socks and orange duct tape ("duck" tape?).  The "Hunters and Their Ducks" won "Most Original" at the costume party.

And Rocket Man won first prize!

And, of course, there was cooking and eating and cooking and eating and . . .
 dirty dishes.

Now there's silence, two chairs left by the firepit, and the kitchen table pushed back against the wall to seat two again. There are piles of dirty towels, a fridge full of leftovers, a ton of calories to burn off, and amazing memories!  Whew!


  1. Loved learning about your 4 days in photos - very clever and looks like it was so much fun.

  2. Such a fun time and everyone will remember their own special memories - especially those two little guys . . . What fun and what stories they will share back home!

  3. Isn't it just THE BEST when all the kids make it home, just like "back in the day"????? You will recover soon enough.

  4. Looks like a fun 4 days!! Lots of neat things you guys all did! You are right; you will carry the memories of this special time together for a long time!


  5. Wow - you guys packed a ton into only four days! Looks like having everyone together having such a great time kind of makes it worth all of those growing up years, doesn't it?!

  6. What a fantastic time you all had! You can adopt us into the family anytime :)
