Myrtle Beach 2009 Father Kids Trip

Another fun father kids trip this year at Myrtle Beach. Francis and his 5 kids came as well as Bob Morrell and his 2 girls. We stayed at Compass Cove in a 3 bedroom condo oceanfront. Some highlights of the trip where Francis and Bob getting wasted on the beach and fried to a crisp. Also the feast on the last night was awesome. I think Francis has found his calling as a chef. Also, we shot off some good fireworks on the beach. Oh, and there was also some good boogy boarding.

Abbey comes home from camp this weekend. Yea!!!

On the downside, my grandfather passed away this week. He was a great man and great capitalist in his day.

What a busy 6 weeks

Wow, time is flying by. In the last 6 weeks, I have been up the east coast to Pennsylvania, down to the Keys, and next week Myrtle Beach.

Abbey has been at camp for 3 weeks now with 2 weeks to go. We get to visit her tomorrow. We miss you Abs. Hope you are having a great time.

Unfortunately grandpa brown has a very rare brain disease called CJD which is terminal. Within 4 weeks, he has gone from walking and talking to bed ridden and not recognizing anything. His brain is being turned to mush. I went down to help mom and Aunt Dorothy take care of him last week. It was sad, but I am glad I went. He recognized me 3 times while I was there, but only for a few seconds before his brain drifted off again.
We love you grandpa.

Aunt Dorothy, my grandpa's sister told me lots of good stories about when they were younger. Aunt Dorothy is the coolest lady around, hands down. We'll be going up to Wisonsin next summer for her big family reunion.

Kudos to John Faucette for a great motorcycle wreck last week. He is now known as the Human Scab. Lesson, don't pop wheelies.

Mikey is testing for his red belt tomorrow. Good luck Michael.

We traded in the van yesterday for a 4x4 chevy suburban. We needed something big and comfy for our road trip coming up. And I got a Flip Video Recorder today as well. Cool toy. Hopefully we can get this house sold in August and hit the open road.
