Well, despite grandpa requiring emergency surgery on Saturday the BBQ went on as planned on Sunday. Grandpa even got to come home from the hospital Sunday morning in time for the BBQ. I think everyone had a great time and it was wonderful being able to see so many family members that we might not have been able to see. It was also wonderful for the trio to be able to hang out with their cousins a little more. They sure do love them and really had a great time playing with them.
Apparently I have a budding photographer. Markas took this picture of me.
Grandpa looks pretty good for having surgery less than 24 hours before this picture was taken.
Playing ladder golf. All the kids had a blast "playing" it.

It would be quite a site to actually have all the cousins in one picture.
Thirty fingers, thirty toes. Plenty of work, heaven knows! Six little arms to hold tight, Six little cheeks to kiss night-night!
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny him with their life style. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.
Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind don't you ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot; and there ain't any real difference between triplets and a insurrection.
