Joe and Izak hanging out in the DJ station. Joe did a great job with the music, and kept everyone dancing all night.

A corny project...

We started this corny project on a whim when we found a good deal at Suter's. We got 15 dozen for the price of 10! Amaya invited her friends to come help shuck. They did a great job, and only left the buggy ears for Dad to do. Mom did the steaming and cutting, and now we have corn for the rest of the year. We'll share at Thanksgiving, or you can come over for dinner sometime...

First 5k

Joe ran his first 5k race this weekend. He ran at a pace of 13:06 per mile, and finished about 1.5 minutes ahead of his dad. Joe is the guy in black.

Welcome to the family, Tevita!

This is my (almost) newest brother-in-law Tevita. He is bigger than any of us, and he has a heart to match. Take good care of my sister, Tevita, and welcome to the Mars Clan.

Kelley's Island daytrip

Dad sitting in his chair on the beach at Kelley's Island. Kids making themselves into Mermaids, as viewed by Dad in his chair. Kids reading about how a glacier carved 3 acres of giant grooves into the limestone. View from the Ferry that carried our Suburban to and from the island. It was a great day.
