Family Reunion

The Dicksons got together for their annual family reunion over the weekend. There was much talking, eating, and playing and several new faces made their appearance at this reunion. We're grateful to have had that time together with family. The pictures above were taken by Nathan Smith. Thanks for sharing the photos, Nathan.

Guest Photographer

Avery, who just turned 6 years old, helped take pictures over the weekend. He was an eager guest photographer and had a real knack for figuring out my camera. He mastered functions I still had not learned yet. Here are some samples of his work.

Hutchinson, Kansas

We had a great weekend visiting family in Hutchinson. Grammie was a lovely host, treating us to a carriage ride through an Amish town and taking us on a tour of the newly opened Kansas Underground Salt Museum. There we travelled down 650 feet below the surface (or 'top side' as the miners refer to it) and got to tour a working salt mine that had been in operation for the past 80 years. It was very interesting.
It was also really nice to visit with Aunt Liz and Uncle Bill, Avery, Syndy, Michael, AnnMayre, and Jeff. Look at the presents Aunt Liz and Uncle Bill got for the baby! It’s an itty bitty K-State hat and a wee little Cubs outfit. I can’t wait for Levi to wear them.
