Today was Shane's Uncle Rodney's funeral. He is the 2nd one from the left in this picture. Also in this picture is Great-Grandpa Raymond, his 2 sons, 3 grandsons and 2 great-grandsons. This is from just about 4 years ago, after Dylan's baptism.

Rodney was such a great person and leader in our community. He ran Ohlde Seed before Shane took over and taught Shane alot and was always there for him if he had a question. I will always remember him for his love of ice cream and duct-tape!!!!! He will be missed.

This past weekend we headed to K.C. to see Toy Story on Ice. It was so neat and we just had the best time.
It started out with the green army men coming down with parashuts from the ceiling but we had people in front of us standing up and I couldn't get a picture, but thought this one was okay of all of them!

Here's Shane and Dylan....

And you know how much I enjoy getting my picture taken but here I am with Dylan.

Here are the little green monsters that glowed in the dark.

And one of Dylan's favorite parts when the truck brought out the bear!!

We spent the night at Shane's sisters house and then when we woke up Sunday morning and was about ready to leave we got a phone call that Shane's Uncle Rodney had passed away. He battled cancer for over 5 years. Him and his wife bulit the house we live in and also ran the seed business for many, many years before Shane took over. Tried to find a picture of him to share but couldn't find the one I was looking for. Please keep his family in your prayers.

So here is Part-3 to Jamaica!!! We went snorkling. It was part of our "package deal", so even though I didn't like it when we went on our honeymoon, I thought I would give it a try again!!!
Here is Shane in the water.

Here is Shane, Chad and Libby.....and everyone else on our boat has been in the water for 5 minutes....and I'm still in the boat!!!

I started out the boat...didn't see any was going great....and then I got a little bit closer to this little island here...and I saw FISH and A SEA SNAKE!!!!! Yep, you guessed it......I was D.O.N.E. snorkling!!!!!!!

Our "guide" found/caught a lobster....after I was out of the water...

Poor Shane was so tired after snorkling he needed a nap!!!! :-)

The first couple of days most of our group played volleyball at 11:00 and 4:00 everyday!

On Tuesday we went on a sunset cruise about 45 minutes away by boat. Once we got to our destination we could all get in!!! The water was 30 feet deep and you could see the bottom!!!

Shane, Chad, Libby and I all went down the slipper slide also!! So fun!!

And the four of us also swam back into the cave that was real close.

Here is Chad having a drink with our bartender on the boat!

Right when we got back to the resort we stayed on the boat to see a awesome sunset!!

Are you getting bored with these yet?? Well, still more Jamaica pics. to come!!! :-)

Jamaica- Part-1

Shane and I just got back early this morning from a trip to Jamaica!!! We just had such a wonderful time!!!
Here is what we saw right away when we finally arrived at our resort on Saturday. We stayed in the town of Negril, Jamaica. It's about an hour and half from the airport.

There were 6 of us that, Shane's cousin Chad and his wife Libby and Shane's cousin Brad and his wife Callie!!!

Sunday was our first day on the beach and though many activities were part of our all-inclusive trip, para-sailing wasn't but we decided to give it a try anyways. Here is Shane and I strapped in and ready to go!!!

Just a little nervous at this point!!!

Can you see us WAY up there!!! What a beautiful view!!! It was just amazing and so glad we all got to do it!!!

More to come..........
