For the Fam -- Howe Pool Party 2008

Hello Everyone~

This post is for the family. I am finally posting pictures from the Howe Pool Party from a couple of weekends ago. My Uncle and Aunt from Pennsylvania, have a pool in their backyard. This side of my family is the "Penn State Crew" About 10 years ago, they started having an annual pool party. This year all of my Aunts, Uncles, cousins, parents, siblings, and their children were there. In fact we had everyone there except for my one sister and her husband. I think that is the closest we've come to having 100% attendance!! My Uncle even invited all of his (and my Mom's) cousins....so I guess that'd make them my second cousins....(I never understood what the right terminology is.) It was a lot of fun. For years my kids were the only little ones there...but now, most of my cousins are having babies. It is so neat to see how the family continues to grow. Thanks for a great time, Harry & Yo!

We'll see you all again next Summer!

Hi Kathi,
I found your blog from Shannon at Bless our Nest. I've briefly read through some of your posts. Let me just say that you made a great decision about getting some good running shoes. I run also and having a good pair shoes makes such a difference. I'll definitely be back!

P.S. Your first window mistreatment looks great! Don't you just love the Nester?

Umm excuse me...Did I not tell you that I WENT TO PENN STATE...and I BLEED BLUE??? Did you go there, too? Or did your family members attend? That party looked like lots of fun!

Hey Debbie,
My family (several generations worth) have gone to PSU. My sis, My Mom, My cousins, My Aunts & Uncles, & even my grandfather went there. I did not. I went to U of Delaware and then U of MD to be close to my boyfriend(Brian)......it ended up being a good decision on my part, because we got married at 21....and we're still together. :)

Do you go back there often? My fam goes to ALL the football games...still even though no one is in college anymore. I get up there once every couple of years. My Aunt & Uncle retired there...so I get to go see them.

My son is just turning 15 as well.
Love the pool party. Nothing like getting a great group of family members together.

Hi Kathy...I haven't been to a game since Nov 1999. We were undefeated, ranked number one in the country headed for a National Title game and on that very day that I sat my tooty tot in Beaver stadium for the first time in 10 years, we lost to Minnesota and thus began the free fall in PSU football that is so well documented. I am no longer welcome at those games anymore. According to my friends ;)
