Family Visit in May

On May 13th, Shaun's grandma, Venna Kruger passed away. It was something we all saw coming and are happy that it finally happened for her. Venna's health has been going downhill for a long time now and we all know that she is in a best place. She is back with her husband who she has been separated from for 41 years now. (Dutch passed away from leukemia when Kim (Shaun's dad) was 16.) Plus she is free from all the pains and physical limitations she had. 

Funeral services were held the following Monday, which gave time for family from out of state to get here. It was fun having family we don't see very often here. Shaun's brother were able to come down. Byron flew out here with James (nephew) and Tom and Chelsea (and Jake) drove down for the weekend. It was a quick trip for them, but it was fun being able to spend time with them.

One fun thing I was able to do while family was in town was to go the Living Planet Aquarium with James and Michelle (Shaun's Mom). We had a lot of fun! The aquarium is pretty awesome, especially for the size. There was tons of cool things to see. They are going to be build a bigger location sometime in the near future and I can't wait.
