Summer is a time for family vacations. This year, we made the trek to Crete, Nebraska, Bruce's home town. It was a great time and Micah got to spend lots of time with NaiNai and YeYe. Micah helped YeYe cook, work in the yard and generally putter around the house. It was neat for Micah to see where Baba grew up, too. Bruce has childhood memories of climbing on this tank in the city park.
There was a big family picnic and we got to see lots of family and friends. Bruce with Brian and Wilma.

Micah was fascinated and terrified by David's motorcycle. Here he is showing off his "road rash."Micah thinks David is ultra cool 'cuz he rides a bike and drives a semi! Here he is hanging out in the cab of David's truck. I got to visit with David's wife Jahnee'. Jahnee' is a fellow knitter and shared several new techniques that will make my knitting better.

Micah spent lots of time playing with the neighbor boy. It was heartwarming to see an older boy be so tender and attentive to a little guy. Micah wanted to do everything he did.
