Shameless Weekend Report

July 16, 2007 - 12:37 AM

That's right folks!  You can find all the stunning, awe-inspiring images in the July 2007 album of our photos, but here is a run down of the weekend.  I will try to do it mostly with images, just to keep the boredom to a minimum, :)!

We took the MN challenge this weekend, and failed, again, both ways.  But Miriam played oh-so-nice with her little ponies and created some fanciful story that if we were closer I am sure we would know just what she was talking about.

We went up there to participate in a Go-Kart Race Fundraiser that Josh's dad was sponsoring on behalf of a dear friend of his that passed away earlier this year.  What a great fundraiser!  53 teams of 5 people each got to race for a minimum of 1.5 hours, or more if you won!  It was very competitive and lots of fun for the drivers.

Our team was Josh, Karl, step-sister Rachel, step-brother John and Rachel's boyfriend Brian.  Our team name was FODS, Friends of Dave's, the gentleman who the race was in honor of.  (I got to make all us non-drivers t-shirts, what fun!)  The drivers did great, and I think I figure they got 15 out of 53.  Josh's dad was in a special celebrity race and got first place all his own!  Here are the kids congratulating him!


Everyone came out for the day, even GG Bob & Elaine.  Did you know they just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary?  Amazing!  Do you know that they went out mini-golfing to celebrate?  Oh to be young like them!


Miriam, Jeremiah and I also got tattoos.  Miriam wanted to get the same kind as me.  She just wasn't excited to get her photo at the time, but she was really proud of her tattoo.  Yes, her face is covered in lots of dirt and her shirt is covered in cheetos.  What are you going to do?!

Oh, and what the hey... here are a few more of my favorites!
