Our Fall 2011 update kicks off
with our annual first-day-of-school photo.

\Just prior to starting 5th Grade, we took the kids to
South Carolina on vacation. On the trip was a very fun
day at Carowinds park with plenty of cousins and family.


And yes, hunger ensued. Being the South,
we found time to load up on some fried chicken.

\Can't go to an amusement park
without winning a couple of new basketballs.


Later, at Lake Murray, the kids discovered
a few new water competitions to keep things cooled off.

They were in and out of the water all day every day.

 Water sports make us hungry.

Hunger means making s'mores.

 We also visited Richardson's Lake in Aiken, SC.
That's where Esther showed she still has what it takes.

First appearance by my wonderful cousin
Debbie on our website. Her pic is long overdue.

Cousin Lynn. Love the shirt.

Cousin Margaret. Sumter, S.C.'s best schoolteacher ever!


One of my favorite people in the world
is Aunt Joyce. She keeps Uncle Jack in line.

Thank you cousins Debbie and Kenny for the party, the
food, the memories and of course, the boating. Wave, Brenda!


Visiting old friends? That would be a yes vote.

The smiles tell the story of this pic.

We know it's not everyone, but pretty close to it.

Some of you perhaps heard that Jonathan met up
with famed Gamecock Coach Steve Spurrier while on vacation.


Well, that's nothing. Cousin Mary has been
hanging out with Coach Spurrier around the office.

Grandma Ellen went with us on the trip and we all
enjoyed checking in with Russ and Sue in Rock Hill, SC.
Don't ask where Sue got the cool shirt. I promise, they're sold out.

Eventually, it all had to end. Now, it's back to reality.
