Father's Day

Father's Day was the first time Kent got his boy to dress alike in their favorite team shirts! I am sure there will be many more events of this. The girls surprised Kent with an invitation to their ball. They all got dressed up and got to order off of the menu for the "King's Table." After dinner of golden nuggets, they had dancing followed by dipping from the royal pot of fondue. Quite a memorable event...

Renaissance Festival in Feldkirch

So how cool is it to go to a Renaissance Festival when you are really walking around cobblestone streets and looking up at a real castle? We had a great Saturday outing in Feldkirch, Austria at the Renaissance Festival. Madison loved getting her face painted, and we loved locking the girls in a cage! Pretty fun day.

Neuschwanstein Castle

We have Heather Rowbotham living with us for the summer and it has been SUPER. It is so much easier to go someplace with three kids when you have another set of helping hands. We took the kids to Neuschwanstein Castle and Madison had to dress up like a princess. She wanted to be the first in line on the tour, too, so she wouldn't miss anything the tour guide said. I think she and Heather both would have loved to live in a castle at some point.... Aren't we all princesses?

Kent in the Marriott Alumni Magazine

I know Kent wouldn't put this out there, but I thought it was pretty cool that the Marriott School Magazine did a write-up on what he has been up to. Check out the link... Just being the proud wife.

It's Euro '08 time!!!!

Here are some fun pictures from our visits to the Euro '08 soccer matches. We watched the games on the big screen in Bregenz Austria. By the way, the next James Bond film was just shot here, so you will see this amazing stage setting again when the next Bond movie comes out in November.

Emily's friend, Sara and her husband Scott came for a short visit after spending some time in Italy. It was great to have them here! We love visitors (hint, hint). Madison's favorite part of the soccer game was collecting the inflatable noise makers. We decked out the car in Swedish flags and had a great time cheering for the Swedes.
