While on my little hiatus we went to Minnesota for some R & R and some fishing.  The boys took their cousin Mikey on quite the adventure in their boat.  On the way back they got tired of rowing and made Mikey pull them back to shore.  It is really hard be the youngest of the group!  lol   (Although Judging from Mikey’s smile, he didn’t mind)



Last year while my sons were still in High School they both won the All State Academic award.  This weekend my nephew had a wrestling meet at the boys old high school and we found this plaque hanging in the Hall of Champions.  We had no idea their pictures would be displayed so it was a very nice surprise.  Here is Corey taking his picture with his iphone camera.  Neither of these are great pics, just snapshots from a proud mom!
