Mamma and Papa's 50th Wedding Anniversary

The funny thing about this year is that both sets of my grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversaries.

The happy couple!!

Matt talking to my little sister and her boyfriend, Jake.

Even for a party, Matt can't stop working.

The Krieg farm has been in the same family for over 100 years!! My mom sent in an application and the Krieg Family Farm is now a Missouri Century Farm.

The night before the party, the whole family met at Dos Primos in Troy for dinner. My step-cousin brought her new baby and she is BEAUTIFUL!!! Here is a picture of Ellen and the new and pround Aunt Krista holding her.

Here is a close up shot. Let me introduce you to Kaylee Noelle.

Labor Day 2007

For Labor Day weekend we went to Mark Twain Lake with the Mennemeyer Family. We had a really great time.

Here is Uncle Doug and Aunt Michelle pulling up to tie to our boat. All of us anchor and tie our boats together and have a good time swimming and partying.

Here is Aunt Ginny sitting on her boat talking to Pat Flynn.

My Uncle Andy and Aunt Adrienne had a new baby in March, so here she is 5 months later in her cute little bikini.

Here she is enjoying her first bite of watermelon. She loved it!! She kept sucking on it, but I really think she just enjoyed that it was something cold to numb her gums.

Here is Roger in the tube with Adam and Grace. He had been messing with them all afternoon by flipping the tube.

Here is Adam and Grace. They are getting ready to jump in the water. She is as fearless as they come. She is 3 and loves to live on the wild side.

Emma's Visit

My step-sister, Stephanie, and her husband, Shawn, came up from Southern Illinois with their daughter, Emma. These are just a few pictures from the weekend.

Emma loved the leather chair my mom has in their living room.

My step-dad went and bought Emma a bumper car that looked like a ladybug. She would sit in it, but got scared if she touched the handles and the car moved.

Since it was also the weekend of my birthday, my mom had birthday cake and Emma wanted a bite. So instead of making sure she didn't make a mess, we just stripped her to her diaper and let her dig in.

I know I haven't put any pictures on here for a while. We have both been incredibly busy!! I do have some pictures saved on the computer, so I will post them whenever I get a chance.

K.C. Horseshoe Tournament

Also this last weekend my Dad and Step-Mom threw in the annual Knights of Columbus Horseshoe tournament. It lasts from Friday to Sunday and they said it was VERY hot! My Dad came home with 1st plat in his class and my Grandpa finished 2nd in his class. We went to my Dad's house when we got back from Chicago and he was grinning from ear to ear so I had to get a picture of him with his trophy.

Ellen had to jump in the picture with him.


Matt and I went to Chicago this last weekend with his sister Amy and her husband Chris. We really had a lot of fun!! While we were there, we walked the Magnificent Mile, went to The Second City Comedy Club (very funny), went to Navy Pier, and saw Buckingham Fountain. The main reason for our trip was to see the Cardinals play the Cubs on Saturday. It rained most of the day and we had to wait for two rain delays, but it was fun. (For those who don't know what happened, the Cards lost 5-3.)

This is a picture of the Wrigley building (the guy that has the chewing gum)

This was really just proof that a Walgreens is on every corner.

This was a view of Chicago from the top of the Hancock Tower. You could see four states from here...Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois (of course!!)

Buckingham holds 1.5 million gallons of water. We thought that was VERY impressive!!


The rain stopped, FINALLY, and the grounds crew took off the tarp.

A couple of the Cards warming up.

Matt, Chris and Amy during the second rain delay.
