Closing Ceremonies

The Turner Olympic Games sadly had to come to an end around Noon on Saturday. The kids were presented with medals and certificates for their accomplishments and said good bye to their cousins. We got home around 6 a.m. this morning after Scott drove the ENTIRE way. Yes, I need to find a medal and certificate for him. The house is again a mess, the laundry is spinning, the dishes are piling up and the kids are at Jane's, things are back to normal. That is until Thursday when its ON TO OKLAHOMA!

Grandpa Chuck's Big Day

Grandpa Chuck had a great 68th birthday, a full day with all his grandchildren, swimming, Olympic games, races, we even took them all for a run! We included some other cool pictures from the water, which they loved! We're back on the road counting license plates tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Grandpa Chuck!

Grandpa Chuck's birthday is Friday and all the kids were busy making signs. The Olympics also continued today at Camp Grandma and Grandpa's. Friday is our last full day before heading back in the car for the long trip home.

Let The Games Begin

My sister arrived with her family from DC tonight. She and Grandma Marian have planned a weekend of family Olympics complete with opening ceremonies which included uniforms, instruments, and a parade (who are these people? I'm sure they are not related to me) The kids loved it and Abegail was a torch bearer.

The cousins were here for five minutes and all 6 kids were in the pool. Right now the athletes are training (soccer I think) although I personally think sleep is what these Olympians need. But who am I, just the media, on a deadline with an Olympic story!
