 Aunt Mary and Grandma Walker spend the afternoon on the deck
at Aunt Mary's lake cabin (Lake View, Iowa), and our 
'crowd' joined them!
 This is Oliver, Alex & Allison's dog, resting on Ann & Don's porch while
 the boys (John, Alex and Marty) scrub Aunt Mary's deck.
 Oliver, Allison, Alex, Samantha, Marty and Stig enjoy the 
lakeshore.
 A dog and his boy?? Or is it a boy and his dog??  Marty trying to convince
 Stig that he'd LOVE the lake if he gave it a chance!!  (Stig is just 6 months old.)
There was a bad storm in Lake View last week, so Marty got up on Mary's and
Ann & Don's roofs to see if there was any damage (luckily, there wasn't!).

We have a new great-nephew!

Okay, so I didn't get a picture of Michelle (Reed's mom, our niece) holding 
him today, because while we were there, she didn'tget a chance to hold him!!!  
Reed arrived Wednesday, 5/16/2012 at 5:09pm (I think) and weighed in at 8 lbs, 6 oz.
He's also 21 inches long!!  CUTE!!!!
 Great-Grandma Lenore (my mom) holding Reed today.
 Proud daddy Neal feeding Reed today.  
 Reed and Izaac's Aunt Nicole showing Reed to their cousin, Blake (Nicole & Brian's son).
 First-time grandmother Tiffany (Neal's mom) holding Reed.
New uncle Stefan (sp?) holding Reed.  
Five-year old Izaac holding his new cousin, Reed (24 hours old!).

Izaac turned 5 years old on 5/5!!  My mom made those cute

 Great-great Uncle Charlie and Blake have a little chat at the lunch table.
 Blake being cute.

Mankato (Minnesota) continued...

 So, we were just driving around Mankato before the pinning ceremony
and what did we find??  A FABULOUS quilt store called "River City Quilts". It
 was in a little strip mall across from the Mankato mall. BEAUTIFUL!!!
 Here's Alex getting his pin for his Special Education Teaching License.

 Here's part of the group of graduate students that were in the same program as Alex.
 Alex had to get fingerprinted to have his background check for his license.
