We came into KC for the weekend because Holly and family were going to be in town. Somehow it ended up being a mini reunion with family. Its always good to see everybody. First off is a video of Holly (and Jim)’s kids, David and Lindsay.
I got them to say “Kelly Clarkson” and “Welcome to your doom” multiple times in case you could not understand them.
Ok and now for family photos. I’ll name people from left to right.
Mike, Hannah, Kathy
Hiatt and Kris
Lauren, Kathy, Sonora, Danelle, Holly, Becky, Mike
As the night wore on, Henry needed a ride home, so Dad and I went out to pick him up from work. We found this car in his working parking lot. An interesting and harmless prank.
Then we swung by my cousin Matt’s house to pick him up and add to the late night party. A great night!
Like any good fool, I often volunteer myself for work that I don’t have to do. In this case, my brother Hiatt was talking about his house needing to be painted. I suggested that he schedule it for Labor Day weekend so we had an extra day. He of course obliged and I was not going to paint for my holiday weekend. Anything for family and friends! Danelle and Corvin couldn’t make it due to Corvin’s soccer schedule (and we could have used her help!).
Of course if you’re getting help from me, I’m going to do things my way within reason. Here are some photos of the events.
We had a fun and hard weekend and got most of the house painted.
Another good unicycling month even including the family.
I also caught the awards ceremony for the MR340, cheering on my friends!
It wouldn’t be a little adventure with some adversity. On my ride home, the throttle cable on the motorcycle broke on the highway. It was a bit of a close call coasting to a safe place to pull over, but I had some help from a fellow traveler. Almost 2 hours later, I made it home.
Hiatt and Kris came in for a baseball game and good fun was had all around.
Hiatt bought Kris three tickets to the Atlanta Braves game vs. the Saint Louis Cardinals. This was the weekend of the game so the two of them plus Rylan came in town. Rylan isn’t much of a sportsball fan, so he wanted to stay at my house and hang out, so I went with them to the game. We started out with dinner at Mission Taco.
After dinner, we went out to the stadium for the ball game. They enjoyed the new to them stadium before we found our seats.
While the game was entertaining, the real story was the lady drinking in front of us. She had a moth in her hair for 7 innings of the game before one of her family members alerted her to it. During those 7 innings, the moth moved around a bunch and included a combing!
Overall a great game and good weekend with family visiting!
On their way to Disney World, Hiatt, Kris, Rylan, Michaela, and Sean stopped by our house. It had the added bonus that it put them closer to Disney and was free 🙂
While they were here, Rylan wanted something to drink, but we didn’t have much to offer. So I suggested that the kids and I walk down to the gas station. There, we got drinks and snacks together. It was cool to spend time with them and treat the kids at the same time. Here are a few snaps from the short visit.
