One Wedding and a Funeral

Last weekend, my cousin Andrew (that's us with the grandparents twenty some-odd years ago):
..married this fabulous girl, Jane:
(of whom Frazier-and the rest of us, for that matter- approved whole heartedly!) :)

...and we were super excited to be able to be at the wedding in North Carolina! It was a whirlwind trip, but we were so glad we could be there and had such a wonderful time!! The wedding was beautiful and all the events surrounding it were just perfect!
Sadly, that same weekend, the world lost (and heaven gained) someone very special.
Josh's Grampa Rudy passed away.
My mother-in-law did a lovely blogpost about him here.

The service was yesterday and though our hearts were with our family in Pennsylvania, we weren't able to be there. And we wish so much that we could have been. It's hard to imagine that next time we go to Port Allegany to visit, he won't be there. It just won't be the same without him. (Josh requested the picture below- which has been in our living room for years-because he says these are his fondest memories of the two of them together...sitting on the porch and talking.)
We should all be so blessed to claim a life lived so long and so well.
He meant a lot to many...and all of us will miss him.

Frazier Lately

I guess I inadvertently took a break from blogging. Life just kept getting in the way. So here's a glimpse at what's happened since last I posted...

He just recently figured out the seat of this firetruck opens, so naturally the first thing he put in it was himself!Happy Football Season!Mmmm...yogurt.He's getting quite adept with the fork. I don't know when kids are supposed to be able to use utensils well, but I was impressed.Free concert:Happy weekend,
