Family History outing

Well this week was an interesting week. The boys, Grandma joan and I went to Westmoreland county to do a little family history before dropping Robert off at the Westmoreland Showtime camp for 3 days. Thanks to Aunt Betty we got the "Cemetery Tour" and finally got to see Robert's great, great grandfather and mother's grave as well as numberous great great aunts and uncles.

On Thursday we took Robert, Garrett, Josh, Katy, Elizabeth & Grandma to the Westmoreland County Courthouse to look up marriage licenses. All of the kids got to use the microfilm machine and the girls were just as fascinated as Robert was with what we were finding. We then went and found Joan's grandparents in the cemetery, at the top of a large hill. We took the kids to Mammoth Park which has a great giant slide - it was pretty cool. Then we dropped off Robert.

Friday, Joan and I went to Fayette County Courthouse and found her parent's marriage license which was very cool. We went for lunch with Aunt Betty and then Joan and I went and picked up the kids and went for ice cream. That evening we got to wacth Elizabeth in a theaater production of "Cluck the Super Duck!" It was very cute and well done. We also got to watch an older group present "Twinderdella." At Aunt Laura's, Garrett got birthday cupcakes!

Saturday, we got things packed up and went for a little shopping and then we picked Robert up and came home. Garrett had a birthday party Saturday evening.

Just a few busy, but productive days! Now back to regular life and getting things done here at home!
