Memorial Day Weekend

Hey Folks...

Just thought I'd jot a quick post for those of you keeping up with this crazy journey. ;) I will try to post some pics from this past weekend soon, so stay posted.... We had some great family time this weekend!

Amy's sister Michele graduated from Rutger's Law School on Thursday, so we left Wed night for NJ to spend time with Amy's family (We'll have to dedicate an entire post to Michele's incredible success at Rutgers...and her upcoming position with the NJ State Supreme Court Chief Justice! We're all SO proud of her - Way to go Shell!)

On Friday morning we left for the Hershey area to hang out with my family for a short time too. It was my mom's 60th Birthday... (I'm not so sure she wanted that made public... but oh well) Mom doesn't look a day over 40. She looks great! ;)

Since it was such a special birthday, we decided to drive out and surprise her. We stopped in to see Dad at his office in Lancaster before heading over to St Joan of Arc School where Mom's been a music teacher for several years now. She was pretty excited to see Kenni and Sasha when they ran up to her in the lunchroom on Friday. We were also able to see Ben and Kami Deppen in the Lancaster area later that afternoon, and then had a nice birthday meal with Mom, Dad, Nate and the five of us. We had a great time... and Tariku is loving Grammie and Papa more all the time!

We planned to head back home on Saturday, but we had a great time a great food with the Ensminger/Epler crew in Annville! That was a great time relaxing and catching up, and watching the kids have a blast getting dirty.

ok... I'll post more pics of the weekend soon.

Love to all,
