Another summer weekend has come and gone. Can you believe it? We don't quite know what to do with ourselves now that baseball is over, but we managed to spend some time with some family we hadn't seen for awhile. On Saturday, the girls & I went with my sister & Cooper to Albion to see the folks. My brother Eric and sister-in-law Sherry and my beautiful niece Aubree came to visit also so was nice to see them. Aubree is getting so big! On Sunday, Andrea & Cooper took John & I to Omaha to do some dishwasher shopping. After almost 16 years, mine is finally giving out. It was here when we moved in in 1992, so not sure how old it is. It leaks water from time to time, and has several issues with some of the parts falling off. We found a nice one at Nebraske Furniture Mart that I will pick up next week when I take Joey to Omaha for a Dr.'s appointment. Then we'll see if Shawn knows anything about installing it. On Sunday evening, Shawn's brother Aaron and sister-in-law Beth had a birthday party for our twin niece & nephew, who turned 2 on Monday. Happy Birthday Dylan & Lexi! We had a great meal, followed by some fun water play for the kids. As you will see from the pictures below, they had a blast. Our week is proceeding as usual -- so far, so good! On a side note, it has been 1 year ago today that Shawn's Grandma Heany passed away. We miss you Donna!
