Natasha, Zachariah, and Sue Plus Granny's 89th Birthday

Benjamin's Cousin's and Aunt from Iowa came to town a few weeks back. We love spending time with them and wish they lived closer. We took the opportunity of their being here to have a family reunion and celebrate Granny's 89th Birthday. It was a wonderful weekend full of sweet memories.
Here's the gang at a Dorman Basketball game (where Thomas, Benjamin's brother is the coach and Matthew, Benjamin's cousin plays...) It was an away game and we like, WERE the cheering section.

Benson's on this "yemon" kick. Everytime we order water, he asks for our "Yemon" and loves eating them.. he makes hilarious faces, but just keeps going back for more!

All four grandbabies...

The reunion scene

Benson and Natash. He loved her!!

Will and Addie Grace-- what's funny is, neither of these have that dark "ryan" look, but they look like they could be brother and sister!


  1. Great pics! What in the world is nerts??? Oh, and Davis loves lemons from our drinks, too, and both of mine said yemon until just recently! So funny.

  2. Hey katie! Here's a link to a site that explains the greatest card game ever! We are totally hooked! :

  3. It's cool to see others that know about Nerts. You should definitely check out , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)

  4. No way! Who knew there was a Nertz association! And so sorry to have been misspelling it!! Thanks for the link! ha!
