Wes and Rachelle Siegrist at the beach with family
Our beach loving family ~ Wes obviously got to choose last how he wanted to ride the waves!
The Whirlwind of travel and adventures has continued since June's email newsletter!  We had only about a week home after the TexArt Workshop before we flew down to Ft. Myers, FL to join family in an early celebration of Rachelle's parents' 50th Anniversary.

We flew home to TN after being dropped off at the airport by family, who then followed us to Townsend arriving the next afternoon.  Our niece and nephew are now old enough to really enjoy all the Smokies have to offer and we managed to keep ourselves entertained each day despite some rainy weather.

A great way to spend a drizzly day - playing with modeling clay!
