Family Wedding

My first cousin, Justin, got married this weekend. It was a beautiful wedding on a beautiful day! It was fun to have a "family wedding" again and enjoy visiting with several family we haven't seen for awhile. The happy couple.

A quick pic of us before the wedding began.

John Deere 2008 Product Introduction Show

Justin was recently in Cincinnati for the John Deere 2008 Production Introduction Show. Below is a video of a project he's been spending a lot of time on.

Howard and Linda Visit

Howard and Linda were in town a few weeks ago. We enjoyed a lot of "down time" with them in the evenings eating meals together and relaxing. During the day while we were at work, they kept themselves busy with golf, reading, shopping, and an out of town visit to Galena.

Friends to China

The mom pictured in this photo is my good friend, Andrea. Andrea and I met in college and were student alumni ambassadors together as well as roommates for a year. She was going to be a bridesmaid in our wedding, but she was due to have a baby at about the same time (little Jacob pictured in her arms) so she opted to read scripture if she was able!

Andrea and her family will soon be moving to China to work for John Deere. They are in the process of trying to sell their home, put their possessions in storage and prepare their minds and hearts for a new living location. Would you join us in prayer for this family? Their names are Dan, Andrea, Jacquelyn and Jacob. We love you guys!

More "I dos"

On Friday night, a good friend of ours got married. Ryan was a friend of D's in college-former student alumni ambassadors together as well as roommates with the gal pictured above. He and Lisa are now honeymooning in Hawaii (aloha!!!). We pray for a wonderful marriage for the two of these great christians! Congrats, Ryan and Lisa!

Tech Basketball Reunion

Justin and I traveled to Houghton, MI for the Michigan Tech University reunion. Every five years, the mens basketball team has a reunion in conjunction with the college reunion. This was the year for the bball reunion! These are a few pics of practice and the actual reunion game. It was the "black team" vs the "gold team". It was tied up at 107 at the buzzer and went into a 3 minute OT. The gold team prevailed (Justin was on the other team) but all in all it was a fun game to watch, and for Justin to play. If you've never been to the Upper Peninsula of MI, we'd recommend it. It's a beautiful area and people up there sure are proud to be Yoopers!
