Anniversary Weekend

We spent a long weekend in Kansas. We went up to celebrate Grandpa and Grandma Hoesli's 60th wedding anniversary.

We had a weekend of nonstop family, fun, and food. We had a big party at the family farm and a reception in town for Gma and Gpa.

Grandpa Mark drove in Wednesday night and spent the day with us on Thursday.  Crocker needed a little hot chocolate coffee in the morning with the big guys.

Friday morning, we left for Kansas. The big boys were entertained with movies on the way.

Since Mark rode with us, I got to sit in the middle by Eli. I enjoyed sitting back and watching movies with M and C.

When we got into Kansas, we went to visit Gpa and Gma Hoesli. They recently moved from their farm into an apartment in town.

Friday night was spent visiting with family at the farm and staying up too late!

Saturday, the whole family (30+) met at the farm for a big dinner. Before the family came out, Sheldon and Mark took the boys back to an old cave.

Sheldon carved the boys names into the side of the rock. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

The men shot clay pigeons.

Max was thrilled that he was old enough to go exploring with the big kids. We didn't see much of him.

 This is the same picture as the one above, but I zoomed in so Max could be seen. He is in a red jacket.

Sunday, Max got in a little quality time with his gun. He is a pretty good shot.

Then we got ready and went to the reception. Crocker smuggled in his gun.

 We had such a good weekend celebrating Gpa and Gma and the foundation they have built for our family.

We have precious little handprints on our sliding glass door. Won't wash them off for a while. Gma
