Outer Banks Trip 2007

From June 9th to 16th, the LaZur family vacationed together at the Outer Banks in North Carolina. This was the first time to the Outer Banks for any of us and the trip exceeded our expectations. The beach and surf is outstanding and the views are breathtaking! Our rental house had views of the ocean from all angles. We also had fun swimming and surfing in the huge waves and the kids throughly enjoyed playing in the sand! A week later, and we are still finding sand in our stuff (and on Matthew's body). Taylor and Matthew just had a ball playing with their cousins: Makayla, Ryan and Kevin. We look forward to getting together again next year!

Taylor's Kindergarten Field Day

At the end of Taylor's kindergarten semester, the school holds a 'field day' where all the kindergarten classes get to participate in fun and games outside. On a steamy May day, Taylor and her classmates participated in various activities including tire races, water carrying races and 'digging for gold'.

Prather Family Reunion 2007

On Memorial Day Weekend, we attended the Prather family reunion in lovely Grahn, Kentucky. Prior to the reunion on Sunday, the Prather and LaZur families had a great time at the Carter Cave State Resort. Carter Caves is one of the oldest state parks in the country and the caves have been explored by millions over the past 150 years. The kids especially enjoyed the cave tours which involved a history of the caves and then going completely black inside the cave (as part of the tour) when the tour guides turn out the lights. We highly recommend this tour if you are ever in the area.

Taylor's 6th Birthday Party

Taylor celebrated her 6th birthday on April 30th. Taylor's party was held at the Mega-Art, where all the little partiers enjoyed making pottery, in addition to the usual cake and ice cream. Taylor especially liked the cake this year since it was in the shape of a princess castle. It was 'almost' too pretty to eat!

Family Florida Trip 2007

The Prather and LaZur families decided to visit Florida in April for the yearly family vacation. We rented a few rooms right on Madeira Beach, right across the street from John's Pass. The first few days events were rained out, but the rest of the week the weather was perfect! The kids had a great time at the picture perfect beach!
