RIP Uncle Jim.

My dear uncle and God father, James Young, passed away on Saturday, June 27Th. While it was not unexpected, it was sad none the less. My uncle was a very loving, kind man to me. We had a very special bond that started when my parents named him my God father. I will miss him taking me out on our go-cart in the church parking lots, teaching me to drive it. He sent me birthday cards every year. He always visited with me when I came to visit my grandmother. He gave me the BEST bear hugs every time I saw him, followed by a big kiss...always. He was there for the birth of my children. We had several long conversations on the phone, just to catch up. I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Uncle Jim. You were loved and will be missed.

Art Attack 5K Race. 1st Place Baby!

When you take second place last year, there is only one place to go. UP! I raced my hardest and took 1st place for my division. I am so happy (and a little tired).

Justin did amazing as well and took 4Th place for his division. We rock!

Arts Festival 2009 - Night Before the Race

Justin and I went to the Arts Festival last night, our anniversary tradition. We had a really fun time despite the fact that we got rained buckets on! It poured!! I've never seen so many people racing for cover at one time. Oh well, a couple of beers followed by some warm coffee was all we needed. The night finished with a beautiful nature show...check out that rainbow!

Camping at Pineview 2009

We love love love Pineview! It's become a yearly Vigh family tradition. This year darling hubby spoiled us rotten by renting a trailer. Oh how I love camper camping. It's the little things in life, like a potty and shower and beds and dryness, that make me happy ;).

This year as we pulled in we were informed "No beach." "What?" I asked. "No beach, anywhere, the water is too high." The camp host replied. My hopes sank. I was a little upset after all, we come to Pineview for the beach! As soon as we got settled, my wonderful father-in-law headed down to the water and found us just about the only "beach" on the lake. How convenient that it just happened to be right next to our camp spots. He put up a tent and we threw down the camp chairs and guess what? We had beach!!!

When we got there it rained, and hailed, for about 20 minutes. Then the clouds disappeared and we had perfect weather the rest of the trip. Plenty of sunshine, good barbecue, s'mores and family time ensured us the most relaxing vacation.

Justin (as in classic Justin style) brought along the 150 pound Big Green Egg. He cooked up dogs and burgs, steaks, the MOST amazing brisket (cooked in a dutch oven in the Green Egg) and a finale of ribs. YUM-O! I love camp cooking.

Thanks Nana & BePaw. We had an amazing time, once again. Love you guys!
