Yesterday Jim, Jennifer and I went to the International Horse Show at the War Memorial in Syracuse. We had a really nice afternoon and were amazed at the jumping ability and the speed of some of the horses.The show started with some Bagpipe and Dixieland music and finished up with a combination horse jumping and tractor driving event which added a bit of humor to the afternoon. We wrapped up the day with a nice dinner at Denny's.

The boys had Friday off from school so we did a day trip into Akron and visited the Harry London Chocolate Factory ( no picture taking allowed) and then went to the Airplane Museum at the Akron Airport. On Saturday Chris tried his hand at making homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies. We had a great week and enjoyed every minute with the boys.

Today I treated Jim to a late lunch at the Wigwam at Sandy Pond for his birthday. It was a beautiful afternoon and the pond was so peaceful. After lunch we took a ride to see Dick Krebs's Elk farm before heading home. Also, as of 12:30 pm today the barn clean-up is finished. What a great day!!!

This past week Jim and the boys came to spend some time and go to the State Fair. We had a great time and were sorry to see the week go by so quickly. We are looking forward to October when Jim and I will go and stay with the boys while Jim and Cathy go to the Fireman's Convention in Florida.
On Wednesday Jennifer and I went to Watertown went to lunch with my Mom , sisters and a group of my cousins. There were 17 in all and we had a great time catching up on news. The youngest to attend was 2 weeks old and my Mom is his great, great, great, great Aunt. That doesn't happen so much anymore with couples waiting until they're older to have their kids.

Sunday the annual Family Reunion was held at my parents home in Watertown, NY. The weather cooperated and we had sunny skies and a cool breeze. The food was plentiful with a lot of the old favorites as well as some new dishes to try. The desserts were over-flowing and the first to disappear were Grandma's homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies. The eldest person in attendance was my Dad who is 90 years old and the youngest was my cousin Kay's newest grandson, Liam, who is 8 weeks old.

On Monday we went to Mill Creek for a picnic lunch followed by a stroll through the "Endless Flower Gardens" ( this is what the boys call it). After that we went to the play area at Mill Creek so the kids could have some fun on the play equipment and run through the sprinklers.
