Family Reunion

This weekend is our annual family reunion. I haven't been to the actually picnic in 9 years. I have made appearance at the end of it and all the food would be gone. I have been working Sunday's for 9 years and just haven't ever got the weekend off. Well this year that has changed. I have the whole weekend off and I am taking off Friday to have a day to myself. In years past we have had family members out to the cabin usually our Missouri and Colorado relatives for a grill out. Just so I would be able to see some of my family. We are going to Janell's house to enjoy a hot dog cook out this year. It sounds like great fun and finally get to taste some of Janell's good cooking. She blogs about all this good stuff. Plus I get to met some of her family that I read so much about. I am very excited to see everyone. Then Sunday its off to the picnic in Oakland which usually its very hot! According to the weather forecast there is a chance of rain so I am sure it will be humid.

Its been a long week because my parents and baby sister are in Canada this week so I haven't been able to talk to them. Its almost driving me nuts. I love my parents and sisters very much! They land Friday afternoon, Mary and I plan to have everything ready for them for the weekend. Well hopefully see everyone this weekend. Val you are on my list for not coming!!!!

Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July! I am so sorry to everyone that I didn't make it to blogstock. I was going to stop out on my way home since I was staying at the cabin in Tekamah. However my day changed very fast when this happened.....

This is my parents friend Mike's boat that we boating on that afternoon. Well needless to say we all had to jump ship. It was the scariest thing I have ever been though. I know I have a guardian Angel up there somewhere. We all made it okay. The boat is non salvageable. So I think I have had the biggest firework display I care to ever been involved in. Here is a few more pictures I took from the sand bar when we got rescued!
