Labor Day was spent traveling to Pennsylvania to remember a man we were blessed enough to call Uncle Larry. He touched so many lives with his loving kindness.
Aunt Carol and Uncle Larry Buterbaugh
Ben or Sam giving Uncle Larry a big hug; from our trip this summer to Pennsylvania. The boys remember Uncle Larry as the guy who wanted to roast him. He was never too busy to truly listen to everyone and play with the kids.
While in Pennsylvania, we headed down to the tree farm for a little while.
Abby loved running around the farm and spending time with Daddy, Grandma, Pop Pop, Katie, and cousins!

Aunt Joann and Uncle Gerald (on right) were gracious enough to have the Stephens clan invade their home for a few hours on Saturday night.
Aunt Carol is always up for a good game and a chance to play with the kids.
Our new cash register that was Uncle Larry's when he was a child.
Abby loved this game, Shut the box. It was very easy for everyone to play.
The whole Stephens clan!
Love the candid pictures I took while waiting to take some family pictures after the memorial service. Sophie is such a great cousin and plays so well with the Stephens cousins.
Sue getting everyone organized.
Here is almost all of the Rising Family. There was one family unable to make it. Pap Pap always said this was the best crop he ever grew. I am truly blessed to be a member of this wonderful, loving family.
All the cousins playing.
After leaving the service we headed to the pool for a little more cousin time. Abby was so excited to be in the pool!
Monday was a long travel day. The kids (and Izzie) did great.

Just in case you were curious what the inside of Sam's mouth looks like.
We stopped at Cabella's on the way home.
Today is Sam's first day of Pre-K which is why I am able to blog. Hopefully, we can keep Abby on this schedule to nap and Mom can have a little break 3 days a week!
