365 Project: Week 30 - Fun with Family!

Remember to check out these photos on my Flickr page to read full descriptions!
This week marked the 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of our wedding day! We got to spend it with family in Rhinelander and had an AMAZING time (see below for a little preview of our 'family photo shoot!') It even RAINED while we were there (it had been awhile since we've seen rain in Indiana...) which, unfortunately, ruined our BBQ plans on Tuesday, although my father-in-law, Jim gave the grill a good effort despite the rain!

After we returned home, we were lucky enough to have my dad and step-mom visit for a few days on their way through Indiana. My dad brought some plants for the front of our house (which was desperate for some signs of life!) and we had lunch at the Triple XXX drive-in here in West Lafayette, which happens to be famous! (who knew?!) It was featured on the Food Network program, "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" with Guy Fieri and is known for it's amazing ground sirloin burgers that are named after famous football players that have played for Purdue! See the Food Network feature HERE (Mary and I chose to have The Bernie Flowers All-Pro Burger and my dad was adventurous and tried out The Duane Purvis All-American (smothered in Peanut Butter, of all things!) Such a fun experience! (p.s. the XXX root beer was fantastic... especially served as a float!)

In other news, Bella has been making friends with her look-alike boyfriend pup next door (his name is Kane and he is a Boxer/Rottweiler mix who barks a lot... Like, all the time.) He is only quiet when his little lady Bella is outside watching him through the fence, at which time he just sits and stares... it was love at first sight :)

I also started my new job on Friday, taking photos at a middle school during registration. So far, so good! It's fun to still be in schools with kids - even if it is behind a camera instead of in front of a class :) 

I hope your summer is wrapping up nicely - I see Target is wall-to-wall school supplies - are you ready?! :)

Here's some shots from the family photo day in Rhinelander!
And, of course, the more true-to-life version of the family...
