Hey Steve - Welcome to America

I figure that if someone is going to come all of the way from Germany just to visit us, then by golly that individual is going to get his own blog post. Last week my brother, Steve, came out for meetings in Denver. Then he jumped a flight to say hi to my parents and we were able to intercept him for 24 hours. Technically the trip wasn't just to visit us, but close enough. Next time we aren't letting you in the door if Lindsay and Brynn aren't with you too!

The kids were so excited to see Steve. Claire wanted to talk to him about the castles and if he had seen any princesses. Erik had all sorts of questions about the Air Force for his Uncle Steve. Sometimes I feel bad that Erik doesn't have any brothers, but then I figure my 2 brothers and Jeff's 4 brothers are a darn good substitute. Our kids have some fantastic uncles (and aunts!). And what do you know Megan actually liked Steve. I say that last part because she is very wary of people she doesn't know and this was Megans first time meeting him.

We went bowling and Steve came out the clear champion. His score of 150 pretty much doubled that of any other score in our group. We are a sorry bunch of non-bowlers.

Here is Steve gloating in front of the scoreboards. No doubt owned the game. LOL!
