Birthday Boy's Bungee!

For Colin's birthday, we went camping with some friends. We headed up to Yale Lake Thursday night and camped out until we could find the perfect camping spot the next day. We boated back to a remote site - it was amazing! We were able to stay until Monday since we didn't have to work due to the 4th of July. So fun! On Saturday, Colin got his birthday surprise I'd be planning for the last 3 months. He was obviously nervous but excited too!


Here's the before picture.


The "right" before picture...


And the after "I'm glad I didn't die" picture.



Did I mention this is the tallest bungee bridge in the US? AND he got 2 jumps? Yep. Poor guy. He loved it though and it even made me want to try it...well, almost. The area was beautiful and some friends got to see Colin jump also. Not sure what I'm going to have to plan for his 30th b-day next year!

Below: Not sure why we all felt the need to scream, but it was scary to watch! ;) And no he didn't hit the bridge and yes he still has both balls! lol

Mini Family Reunion!

Wow, it's been way too long since I've updated my blog! What a perfect post to start blogging with. We recently had a mini family reunion with a few family members from the Bruce side of my family. We had my cousin Paul, his wife Jessica and their daughter Meadow come visit from Las Vegas. We haven't seen Paul for around 25 years! On top of that, he reunited with his dad Ralph and met his sister Cora for the first time ever. My parents came down as well, so it was a packed house, but we wouldn't have it any other way!

It was awesome to "meet" Paul since I was too young to remember last time I saw him. Cora absolutely loved her big brother and neice Meadow! It was such a fun 3 days, we can't wait to do it again with even more family either next year or the year after!

Even Rissy loved Meadow...or at least tolerated her. ;)

Meadow was such a little ham. She loved her Aunt Nancy!

Cora is SO photogenic...


Meadow and her puppies.

Gotta have a silly picture! Paul, mom and I.


Cora and her big brother, Paul.


My Uncle Ralph and 2 of his 3 kids, Paul and Cora.


Everyone minus Colin, the photographer! Jessica, Ralph, Nancy, Cora, Paul, Meadow, Kara, Cregg.

We can't wait until the next one!
