In Celebration of Grandma Susie

The Washington Tylers did a breast cancer walk and that's my cousin Jack holding up a sign that says, "In Celebration of Grandma Susie."

In Colorado, Ishta and I got a lot of opportunities to chat (late into the night) and we talked about Grandma Susie a lot. It was nice to get another perspective of her and how she touched people's lives.

Cameron's Cell

For school, Cam made a model of a human cell out of cake and various candies. I've labeled all the parts for you. Isn't that neat though? I never did that when I learned about cells... =)

A Critical Role

If you ignore the mess that is our patio, you can see that we set up a mister system made out of PVC pipe!! (not, a Mr. system... but a pipeline that blows mist at you when you hook it up to the hose.)
Okay, I know it's hard to look past the messy background, but try anyways..

 I thought I should document the role I had in this experience:

The Cement Holder!! Dad took this from his perspective on the step ladder. I also helped mom mark and cut the PVC into 2-ft. pieces.

And also, my dad actually using the cement and my hand holding the can as photo evidence that I actually did help.

Even though it was stormy, we turned them on after we finished! (Because we had to try them out.) It's pretty cool!!

Still kind of working on Reunion posts. (Except, I'm not really working on them, I just haven't forgotten that they're not done yet.)

Update!!! In Process...

Ah, I feel like it's been awhile!! we just returned this afternoon from a 10 day family vacation which was great!!! But now I have a bunch of pictures to post!! O_o And I'm also realizing, that there were a few trips in May that I haven't blogged yet so I will be working on those and thanks to the wonderful feature (which saves me so much time and makes me look like a good blogger) "scheduled posts," they'll be posted "on" the days they happened.

In case this is too complicated, I will just add the links in a nice bullet point list here as I publish so they'll be easy to find.(here is an example from when I did it in April)

Bullet Points:

Or... as I just realized, there are no posts (as of yet) between the family reunion ones and this maintenance one, so you can just scroll down. (But I will keep them linked here anyways)
