Destination: Hobart, IN

We visited many gorgeous places on our journey to Indiana.  Each time we stopped, the kids posed the same question, "How much longer to Grandma & Grandpa's house?"   The Prius was just as happy as the kids to finally reach our destination and relieved to have a pleasant resting place.

Grandma Faye & Grandpa Jack live in the house that they purchased when I was 5 years old.  My birthday is approaching....I'm between 40 and 50. ;)

Family Gatherings

We are blessed to have such a great extended family in the midwest.  My dad is one of 5 children and my mom is one of 10.  Our timing with this trip was perfect, allowing us to attend the Snap graduation party and the next day, a pool party at my cousin Kathy's home.

Both of my brothers, Scott & Mark were able to attend the Snap graduation party with thier families.  Claire and Joey were happy to see their cousin, Lily and the Snaps know how to throw a good party, pictured L to R:  Jordan, Deb, Tom, & 'lil Conner (how did we forget to put Cameron in the pic?).

The next day, we travelled to my cousin Kathy's house in St. John, Indiana.  We enjoyed the warmth of the day, had a BBQ, and reconnected with dear cousins, aunts, and uncles.  

The kids were impressed with the fact that Kathy's pool had both a slide and a diving board.
