• Kinard Family Celebrations

Posted by: kidhelper on Monday, August 18th, 2008


We now look for any excuse to get all the family together. It was an Open House, an Engagement Party and a Family Vacation, all rolled into one. This has been a great summer for our family. Sarah delivered Taylor, Kristen and Bryan announced their engagement, Ken and Jennifer announced the coming of grandchild number eight in 2009. So we scheduled a holiday/vacation for us all to be together to celebrate. We had an Open House to invite all our family and friends to visit us.

Above is a recent family photo taken in our backyard. (back left) Kevin and Sarah with Taylor, Bryan and Kristen, Barney (Proud Papa), Karina and Michael West holding Tennyson (Ken’s son), Cheryl West (Matt West was in Korea). (front left) Jennifer Kinard with son Spencer, my wife Sharon (Nana) with Madison (Kevin’s), Ken and his son Benjamin.

If you are interested in learning more about the family celebration….

Then there was the time for the sibs to go the Spash Water Park for the a day together with the grandkids.


The brand new center pool was just beautiful. Just had to include this shot.


All the cousins enjoyed thier time together. It was great having them all here.


Of course, there was plenty of time to get another “grandparent fix” from each of the grandchildren. Here Sharon is having some fun with Madison.


There was plenty of time for the grand kids to get better acquainted with each other. Here Benjamin is having some fun with his cousin Madison.


Taylor, our newest grand daughter, slept through most of our celebrating, but she was the center of all the attention. It was a great time of being together.
