Memorial Day Weekend 2015

Hi there.
I'm back.
I thought about joining a cult but I just couldn't get behind their vacation schedule.
How was your Memorial Day weekend?
Ours wasn't too bad.
I even have photographic proof.
We went over to the Seattle area for a wedding and ... well I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

We stopped halfway to Seattle the first night to visit family and Kyle & Hayden decided a fort was the best option for sleeping that night. And yes I bought a sticker to turn my Apple icon into Batman.

Hayden was happy to smile and show everyone how much ice cream didn't make into her mouth.

The highlight of the trip for Kyle was zip lining at the park. Just look at the smile on his face.

Kyle and Hayden all dressed up and ready to go to the wedding. 

The whole dang family. If you look closely you can see Kyle isn't feeling too good and this is just a few moments before he set the Memorial Day Weekend Wedding Reception Record for most trips to the bathroom.

After setting the record, Kyle called it a night in Mrs. Shife's arms. We are not sure if he caught a stomach bug or had some food poisoning but the poor guy must have gone to the bathroom at least 15 times. He has had better days. 

Hope all is well. Thanks for stopping by and talk to you soon.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


  1. Your family is so stinkin' cute Shife...

  2. The bride and groom called Tuesday and reported
    Kyle-like-symptoms and so did Travis the next day.
    I thought it was the after-wedding-after party that
    resulted in Travis' credit card ending up at a hotel
    no-one stayed at or visited...
    All in all, a good time was had by all.
    Most of the time :-)

  3. As REM said (or something similar) "Life. Is Living."
    And so forth.
    Even with the bathroom trips.

  4. Love the family photo, can't even tell that Kyle is feeling under the weather. Hope his little butt has recovered by now.

  5. Poor little lad, an upset tummy is not the thing to catch at a wedding. Hope he's feeling better now.

    I enlarged a couple of pictures to get a better view, and the family photograph is GREAT. There's no doubt about it, you and Mrs Shife and the children are a really handsome family. AND the kids posing together is a treasure. You'll look back on that one with a lump in your throat.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.

  6. excellent photos mr shife. no offense, but i think kyle gets his good looks from his mother.

  7. I think other than the final caption, it looks like a good time.
