Family vacation 2006

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

What a great time we had this year. We stayed at a house in Sea Grove Beach, and since it was the start of the off season, we had the beach pretty much to ourselves. It was a blast to watch Garrett explore the beach for the first time, and he loved it.

There are some great shots in the picture gallery on my web site, and also even better ones on the link if you click on the title of this blog. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we had experiencing them.

Company picnic

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

Had a great time at the annual company picnic, which I had not been at for several years. It was held at Bob’s house, and everyone seemed to have a great time.

We discovered a new game called koog, which was a lot of fun. It is always interesting to see the competitive side of people when you get to games. Please check out the photos in the gallery.

Our great trip to Chicago with the Browns

Tuesday, August 1st, 2006

We had a great time spending the weekend with the Browns. It is great that we got to see them 4 times in about a year…….a record!

We had a great time Friday night just hanging around the house, and found a great restaurant to walk to for dinner.

Saturday was a visit to Navy Pier where we watched the sailboats getting ready for the Mackinaw Island Race. We then walked to Millenium Park-yes I can say it- and saw the bean art. Then on to an Irish Pub for drinks and to sit.

We then went to a street festival, with live music from a local band. It was great fun.

Sunday was more relaxing in the backyard, and just having a great time. The wonderful weekend was capped by a backyard barbecue with steaks, salad, and great wine….Millennium. We even had the company of Jack and Sue Ellen as well. Thanks to great family and friends for a very cool time.
