Family Ties

Hi, I thought I would update everyone on the happinings at the Crowther household. We have been busy since we last talked. Justin turned 27 on May 30th. He leaves in 2 days for Germany to go to school for 7 weeks. Wow, can you believe it ? He will be so far away. I hope he has a great experience. Heather had a birthday also. 24. Where does the time go. We get to see Chad and Heather alot and get to play with Riley and Tyler who are so much fun. They make me smile just to see their faces.
Rick and I went to Florida the beginning of June. Rick had a conference he needed to be to which happened to be around my birthday. I won't tell you how old I am, but, its getting up there. We went from Florida to Tennesse and spent the weekend with Diane and Bob in their beautiful home. We went to see Iron Man. It was pretty good. The best thing was being with Diane and Bob even though he had a busy schedule and was gone alot. We still had a great time. We barbequed on Sunday Bob did the cooking which was fabulous. He is a really good cook. We came home on Monday and it was hard to leave Diane and Bob in Tennesse, but, they live so close to Opra and Dolly I guess they will be ok.
Oh I can't forget to say the Nikkole graduated from High School in May also. She is working at the University and is about to move in with Crystal. All of a sudden Rick and I are emty nesters. We thought that was so far away. We have enjoyed having Nikki around. She has kept us young. I'm glad Chad doesnt live too far away to bring us Tyler and Riley. Things are going to be kinda quiet. Yippee oh I mean it will be ok too.
We celebrated Fathers Day last week and it was fun. We barbequed in the back. Rick and I have been working so hard on the yard. Even though it was hot, we suffered! by dang we are going to use our back yard shade or not. Happy Fathers day to all.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you, my favorite family, during the hot days of summer. I want to enjoy every minute with you.
