Family Fun in Emporia!

Saturday was spent hanging out with our family from around Kansas at our annual swim party at my aunt's house in Emporia. The gang from Wichita and Kansas City area all converge at Rick and Barb's house each summer to enjoy each others company, catch up and eat some great food. The weather was perfect and the kids had a great time playing and swimming with their cousins!

All of my cousin's kids, including mine. There were actually 7 who weren't even there!

Well I'm off to work. At least I'm leaving for Table Rock in 3 days! I can't wait and boy do I need a break! Can't wait to share those pics with ya!

Let the fun begin!

So I've been mulling over the idea of blogging on this site for awhile! I'm on myspace but I've become a bit bored with it. I finally got inspired to do something with this site when I got some software that lets you make blog banners and such! The above banner is my first attempt and I think it turned out ok! So don't be suprised if the look of this site changes quite frequently! For now enjoy some random pics from our summer so far! Enjoy!

These are from Cody's graduation from Boot Camp, Young Marines boot camp to be exact! Think Boy Scouts on steroids! Just kidding! It's really a great organization that promotes respect and pride for one's self, others and country, along with tons of community service. This is a great group for Cody since he just really isn't into sports but he just loves history and military stuff which is what this group is about! I'm just so proud of him and he looks absolutely grown up in his cammies!

Ta Ta for now!
