I am way behind on my family reporting. Several weeks ago we went to visit Sons #3 and #2 up north and had a wonderful time before our whirlwind of packing to move hit "fast-forward." I am sorry that I have not posted the most recent family pictures before now.

First, we visited with Son #3 and had dinner with him before heading on up to visit Son #2 and family. We even got to see Son #3 very early in the morning in his "work clothes" for a few minutes.

Next we drove a little further north and helped Em celebrate her birthday by having lunch with her and the family.

We took her birthday shopping.

We went out to their house for Em's cake and a beautiful afternoon in the country.

And then we went with the family to Em's special restaurant for dinner.

This past weekend Son #1 and family came to help us dismantle our deck and backyard landscaping to prepare for the new addition to our house during the remodel. They, along with a neighbor and my nephew and Granddaughter #1's friend, worked like Trojans and we accomplished much more than I ever hoped! We also had a little fun and some good food before they had to return home.

Thanks so much, Son #1 and family for taking the time to help us out. You literally moved a mountain of things in one short afternoon. I hope you are not too sore today.


  1. Seems like you are moving right along on schedule! Nice family photos...thanks for sharing.

  2. We had so much fun when you all were here! Good to see you got lots of help with the backyard! Can't wait to see you soon:)
