Bob and Carol and the boys came over for dinner tonight. We haven't seem them for awhile, as they have been busy this summer with soccer and basketball camps, church camp, and vacation bible school next week. And of course they went to Cleveland in early July for The Lange Open, when Bob's whole family meets in Cleveland for an annual golf tournament and picnic. They even went to an Indians game one night (45 of them!) and got their names on the scoreboard! And they celebrated Aunt Peg's 90th birthday, and had a bridal shower for Tim's fiancee, so it sounded like a fun and busy weekend. They just got home from a vacation to the Grand Canyon and then out to San Diego to see Joyce (Carol's mom). They had a great time, and hearing about the Sedona area and Grand Canyon renewed my interest in visiting that area. We sat outside and talked for awhile while the boys played cards and then basketball outside, and then had a yummy dinner of brisket, Kimmelwick rolls, French potato salad, fresh corn and sliced tomatoes. Brooks joined us for dinner, and the boys were happy to see him.

We are so lucky to have Bob and Carol and the boys in the area with us. We miss so much of the family time back home, so we just have to make our own family time here in Virginia and Maryland. Whenever Mom and Dad used to visit us, or when Peg and Tom still visit, we all get together and everyone loves that. Aunt Peggy always says how happy it makes her that Bob and I live near each other and that we can spend holidays together. It makes us happy too. Love her--I think she deserves a picture here as well.
