Sunday was the annual Connell family picnic held in Long grove. Tim's mom is a Connell and one of 8 kids of Ed and Marge Connell. They all have multiple kids which make up about 40 first cousins for Tim. Well add another 40 or so great-grand kids for Grandma and Grandpa Connell and WOW...you have a giant family party
Stay in the circle and pop the balloon while protecting your own balloon
The final 4....The winner is...
holding his beach ball prize
there may have been whispers in the crowd that Karrick has pointy bones sticking out of his body
(is it wrong to withhold food for 2 weeks prior to the games?) I don't think so.
My motto "if you come to play...Play to Win or don't come at all"
A win's a win
lots-o-swimming and games
