Our family gathering

Last Friday evening my parents picked up my brother Tom from Valdosta were he was on a business trip and they all drove up to our house for the weekend. It was a nice, calm, restful weekend. We stayed close to home and enjoyed each other's company. We ate lots of 7 layer dip and peanut clusters, fished in our neighborhood pond, and had a bonfire in the backyard both Saturday and Sunday nights. It was great spending time together as a family.
Present from Uncle Tom - voice altering mask and light up light saber with sound effects:

 Gavin made his own high-capacity fishing pole:
 Cutting up a discarded wood pallet for our bonfire, Gavin was a great helper:

10 days in FL

I realized I should probably take the time to get this post up today since the rest of our fall is going to be pretty busy. Today happens to be Gavin's gotcha day. 5 yrs ago today:
