The BIG 3-0!

Matt, Amy, and Gordon
Thanks to Amy for bringing all the yummy cookies and cupcakes!

Matt got some IU golfballs from his family, along with a couple nice golf shirts and some other golfing gear!

The siblings!

Zoe fell asleep on my hand. She had a lot of entertaining to do that night!

So Matty turned the BIG 3-0 on 8/8/08! We had a cookout with some close family and friends to help him celebrate the big day. With the help of Qudoba catering, a keg of Miller Lite beer, and homemade cupcakes and cookies by Amy, I think the party was a hit. By the end of the night even ZoZo was beat! We are blessed to have wonderful family and friends.

Family Vacation to Colorado

So the Hamer side of the family headed out to Colorado for my cousin Toby's wedding. The Bender's decided to make a vacation out of the trip. We had lots of family time doing fun things like, hanging out at the pool, exploring different restaurants, white water rafting (where my mom, dad and Gordon all fell out of the boat!), and my favorite...running through both the Indy airport and the Denver airport to make our flights to and from! The good news is all 6 of us made both flights but not without a little stress and a little exercise from the running! Oh well, it makes for a good story! We had a great time and got to spend time with extended family.
