Catching Up..I doubt it!

Our county fair started on Sunday. Dan and I went earlier today, had  a nice time walking around and of course eating some "fair food".   I especially love going to the fair and have many wonderful memories of our fair.  I was involved in 4H growing up and then my kids were also involved in 4H, especially Kelly. For several years I volunteered as a leader and superintendent.  I can't say enough good things about the Monroe County 4H program and the Monroe County Fair.
VBS went great last week! I had a lot of fun helping and teaching the kids.  :-)
 I did miss one night of VBS, Thursday evening.  We attended a Toledo Mud Hens game.  My uncle Dale, who passed away this past Spring was a huge baseball fan, ..The  Mud Hens and Detroit Tigers.  We had a group of 200 people attend the game in my uncle's memory. My aunt Grace threw out the first pitch, it was awesome!
 Here is a pic of her on the stadium's big screen.
Here a couple more pics from the game.

 Fireworks after the game were great! This is just a sample.
It was a fun evening with family and friends. I have lots more photos. Check them out on my facebook page.
This week is busy as well. We have the family reunion coming up Sunday..LOTS to do for that yet, yikes!!

Take care and God bless!!

  6. Hi sister! Altough I feel as though I've been a bad 'family member' lately. It's been difficult helping my son through this time, so that's taken a lot of my time. Thank you so much for your sweet texts & emails Pam. It means the world to me!

    I loved the photos of your family enjoying the game. What an awesome tribute to your uncle Dale.

    I have such fun, sweet memories of our county fair as I grew up. And yeah - gotta love that fair food! :-)

    Have a blessed week Pam. Sending you big hugs! Love you

  7. Great pics Pam :) Hope you're having a good week.
