At the roll Grandma Bozurich put on his plate, "Is this our daily bread?"
To Aunt Dana about his outfit he was wearing to a funeral, "I'm gonna rock that funeral."
When we were visiting my grandparent's mausoleum Seth spotted a brass plate with Santa on it and was horrified. "Mom, did Santa die?" I was quick to reassure him that Santa was just fine in the North Pole..
When I told Seth that Sasha, our neighbor's dog, was going to live with his aunt, his reply was, "I already knew that was going to happen, because Aunt Stacy is the only one in the world who truly loves her."

Our garden was a bust this year. The only thing we have picked so far is some basil and this puny 2" weirdo cucumber. I'm still hoping for a few things, but we started too late and went on too many trips to keep it up. I'm hoping to do a fall garden this year. Maybe we'll have more luck with that.

|Seth woke up at midnight, hungry. Grandma made him some of her famous scrambled eggs. She revealed her secret to making them so good - they're cooked in butter AND a touch of oil.|
|Aunt Dana made a whistle out of a straw at lunch on the way home.|
Beside our trip to Kennywood, I didn't take many pictures of our visit to Pennsylvania. We received some sad news on the eve or our trip. Our Great Aunt Betty, Grandma's sister, had passed away. While it was nice to see so many beloved family members, we are deeply saddened at the loss of such a wonderful lady. Dan rushed up to be with the family as soon as he could. We spent much of the trip in Ebensburg, supporting Grandma during this difficult time. Seth did get to sneak in a quick visit with Nate and Will on our last night. While it wasn't the way we had envisioned our visit, we sure were glad we could be with our family to celebrate the life of our dear Aunt Betty.

Kennywood for a while now and we finally had the chance!! Wile we were in Pittsburgh, we got to spend an evening at the amusement that we all went to every summer as children. Seth and Sophia loved the rides in Kiddyland and Seth was big enough for many of the regular rides too. He loved the Turtles, Parachutes, Kangaroo, and Merry-Go-Round, but hated Noah's Ark - it has changed since I was a kid and is kind of scary now - and Garfield's Nightmare - sounds scarier than it is - picture Garfiled being chased by a cartoon ice cream cone, but I think the darkness caught him off guard. He rode the Log Jammer (like a water coaster) and the Jack Rabbit - his first real roller coaster. At the time he was unsure of these two, but now says he loves them. Mom and Dana rode the Phantom's Revenge - a ginormous steel coaster and Mom and I rode the Thunderbolt, which was way more jerky than I remember. We also had all kinds of junk food - cotton candy, corn dogs and fries from the Potato Patch (with onion salt - yum!). Dad really wanted to take the kids last summer while we were up, but he was just too sick. I wish he could have been there, but I'm glad we could carry on this family tradition.
