Happy Birthday to ME!

For my birthday this year we went down to the James River. The weather was unusually beautiful for October, but we aren't complaining!

I love this picture: "Boy With Dog."

We tried to make it all the way across the river rock by rock, but the rapids were pretty fast and furious in some places. We did make it about a third of the way.

Cali inherited Todd's love of living dangerously. Gotta love a guy who induges his daughter's love of a good adrenaline rush.
It was the most perfect day.

The Grand Canyon is GRAND!

The first day, we stayed to see the sunset over the canyon. It was spectacular!

Let me tell you, my heart was in my tummy when they posed for this shot. It turned out to be a ten foot drop to a walking trail below, but they like living on the edge.

While we didn't make it to Vegas for the fabulous family reunion, the kids and I were able to make the trip a few weeks later in September. Dre and Vinnie took us to the Grand Canyon while we were there, and it was quite grand! Absolutely a must see!

Thanks for the great trip Dre and Vinnie. And huge thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for watching Baby James so we could do it.

Grandma and Grandpa Vegas, I would have to say you have a good looking group of Grandkids!!!

Family Reunion

This year we had the Family Reunion in Vegas. We were short a few members of our family because of unforeseen circumstances. We had a great time but those who couldn't make it were greatly missed. We were sly enough to pull off a SURPRISE "60th" Birthday Party for Mom and we did it with a fifties theme. It was a lot of fun after we got through all of the stress. Here are some of the pics from the party.
