Family Fun

WOW!! That was a weekend to remember!!

Uncle Tim and Aunt Sheryl were home from Colorado visiting---along with cousin Lydia and her boyfriend Alex! What a great time --we had 2 evenings of food, fun and fellowship. I cannot imagine what they will go home to tell their friends. This is Alex's second visit to Indiana--I wonder what he tells his family about us. We are just normal people--right???

Maybe it is just that there are a lot of us? We eat and have fun just like everyone else. OK maybe we did have a lot to eat this weekend. That could be why food doesn't even sound good today!!



On Saturday evening, we spent time with Grandpa Gerber's brothers and sisters and their families.

Sunday evening was a little less formal. We went to Blare and Janel's for supper! Grandpa and Grandma provided Pizza King pizza for the group! Always a treat-Tim, Sheryl and Lydia love Pizza King so when they are home that is usually what is on the menu.

It is always nice to spend time with our family. We are truly blessed to have such a great family. Whether its the Aunt and Uncle you see once or twice a year or the cousin you only live 1 mile from, family is such a wonderful thing.

Thanks Grandpa and Grandma-- you have given us so much!! Thanks for the memories!!

Thanks too to Blare and Janel for opening up your home to us. Hope your basement is drying out! Sorry you missed out Rex it was a good time! You were missed!!!
