Family Fun

June 7, 2009

We’re in the Shenandoah Valley this weekend celebrating with Carl’s family.  Friday was his mother’s birthday, even if she claims she doesn’t have them any more. Happy birthday, MeMe!   On Saturday, our niece graduated from high school.  Congratulations, Heather!  The speaker graduated from the same school 40 years ago and he did a great job – he even quoted Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers.  Heather will be going to school close to Vance in the fall, so maybe we’ll get to see her from time to time.


We grabbed a quick bite to eat after the ceremony so we could go see our nephew play baseball.  He made a run and his team won.  As you can tell, he was less than thrilled to have his picture taken.


We’re heading home today for some much needed rest after being away the last two weekends!

    I love the pictures. What a beautiful family. Congratulations to the graduate. How you are posting with all the travel is beyond me. I have been pooped this past week.

    Oh! The Shenandoah Valley is one of my very most favorite places in the world! Absolutely beautiful! First NYC, now the Shenandoah — when are you going to start packing ME in your suitcase?

    Thanks for sharing your family’s celebrations. It’s wonderful that you were able to be there. Rest up early in the week and enjoy staying at home for a bit.

    I always feel as though I need a vacation after my vacation 🙂

    Have safe travels back home!

    Hope you arrive home safely.

    I’ve had three weekends in a row with “obligations” and am looking much forward to next weekend, where I hope to be able to rest a bit.

    And btw, where is Shenandoah Valley?

    Thanks for sharing these pics with us. I love to see family pics and that last one of your nephew reminds me of all the pics that I have taken of my son. Boys just don’t care to have their pic taken, do they?

    P.S. I have an award for you at my blog!

    Kathy! How wonderful for MeMe to be commenting on your blog! Way to go MeMe and a very Happy Birthday to you!

    Congratulations to the graduate and happy b-day to MeMe! Have a safe trip home, Kathy!

    It sounds like you had a wonderful trip! Funny, when I aim the camera at my older son, he gets the same look as your nephew – actually, only if he doesn’t succeed in getting that arm up in front of his face in time. 🙂

    Kathy thanks for sharing the pics. Congrats to the graduate. You have been busy with traveling lately but all well worth it right?

    What a beautiful family! Congrats to all. It sounds like you have a fun weekend. We have plenty of ballgames and graduations ourselves but high school doesn’t finish here for a few more weeks.

    I have awarded you the Lemonade Award 😉 Please share the love when you have time:

    You’re really on the move — first NYC, now the Shenandoah Valley. I got to love the valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains (and chocolate pie) — while I lived in Roanoke. Glad you had a great time.
