Mother turns 90 - Ruthie's Rollers

On June 13, 1925, a wonderful person was born in Valley Falls, Kansas. 
Known as Ruth, Ruth Marie, Ruthie, Mother, Granny, Aunt Ruthie or GreatGrandma ... she turned 90 years old today. In her honor, Heidi organized a team to participate in the June 13th Alzheimer's Walk. We named our team Ruthie's Rollers.


After the walk, and after meeting Nancy's new puppy named Dexter ...
 we headed to the Kansas State Capitol Building to admire the multi-year $325,000,000 rehab. It is breathtakingly beautiful. 

The frozen custard snack afterwards saw Hope lead her mom and Carly in an impromptu dance performance on G's stage.

Mother's 90th Birthday dinner brought us all together again. Melissa even drove in from St Louis.
Thank you, Mother for being who you are.
Happy 90th Birthday.

Arkansas 2015 - Swingin' in the Rain

2015 marked the 20th straight year our golf group traveled to Bella Vista, Arkansas, for a multi-day golf marathon. This was the year of Swingin' in the Rain. 
Not to be deterred, rain gear was donned, 
casual water was crossed
and swollen creeks were forded.

Despite the wet conditions, golf was played 
and white golf shirts were worn.
We had a blast!
