Summer Vacation

My family and I have been extremely busy this summer. We started out with VBS at church in June, I am in charge of crafts so that is a very busy (messy) week for me but it is a lot of fun. Amber used Shelby's dog Nancy for dog 4H so we walked in the Nebraskaland Days Parade with our group.

Morgan came up from CO so she could go on vacation with us. We started out meeting 2 of my sisters and their families in Pigeon Forge, TN. We rented an awesome cabin for 3 nights.
 

After TN we all headed to IN to visit family and celebrate the 4th of July. Of course we had to do some fishing, play games, visit with family, and go out to eat.

We made it home in the middle of July and added another member to our family. We acquired a 5 month old German Shepherd puppy, and it is just like having a toddler again.

Amber showed Nancy (my daughter-in-laws dog) at the Lincoln County Fair. This was her first year in dog 4H but Nancy has been involved with 4H for several years. They did very well taking Grand Champion in obedience for her division with the 2nd highest score over all the obedience dogs. For showmanship and agility they took 3rd place. Amber was so excited....she didn't think she would win so many ribbons & a plaque.
The last week in July the girls and I went to Glacier View Ranch in Ward, CO for family camp with our church. We went a few days early and stayed a few days after to hang out with Morgan. While we were there we went to Heavenfest to enjoy over 100 bands on 8 stages. Of course we didn't see them all but we did get to see Mercy Me, Skillet, KJ-52, and Shonlock and a few more.

Amber, Delaney & Alaina with Shonlock. He took the time after his concert to talk to his fans and pose for pictures. He moved before my camera was finished that is why his hair looks funny.

While we were on vacation Michael left for Army basic training, he will be graduating in September. We all can't wait to head to South Carolina for his graduation. We all miss him so much!
