Preparing for the madness

I am so very excited, because my house will be rocking starting this Wednesday. My cousins Bill and Karin and my Uncle Bob will all be arriving with their spouses and kids. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of our summers together, and love the fact that now our children can make memories for themselves.

It may be crazy and hectic, but there will be lots of fun. Lots of activites planned for on and around the fourth, as well as a family picnic at my house on Saturday.

Hope you all have a fun and safe holiday week.

He's Back!!


My cousin, Major William Jakola is back after 18 months in Baghdad. We are so very proud of him and his service to our country. He and his entire family will be coming up North to visit us for the fourth of July. What better way to celebrate Independence day. God bless America and thank you Major Jakola!
