The boat arrives in SC!

Hi Everyone,

It was a busy few weeks down here for the Kilians. We had a string of visitors from up north...and sadly our last guests (Joey and Lindsey) left this morning. After my mom, Heather, Payton, and Sherri visited the end of July into early mom and dad drove back down with our new boat (the Stay Classy!!!) They arrived the second weekend in August...upon their departure, Kyle's parents and his aunt and uncle arrived to spend the third weekend in August with us. They were able to be a part of Kyle's promotion ceremony on August 14th. (He was promoted to Major--yay Kyle!!!) It was a very nice ceremony and Kyle made a short speech where he recognized all of us---very touching. He even called me his personal drill instructor ;) We all went to a great dinner out for both Kyle's birthday and his promotion...
Joe and Lindsey arrived this past Thursday and stayed with us until the morning. They got to help us celebrate Jimmy's 5th birthday!
The Stay Classy has gotten some good use so far. The guys have caught a bunch of different fish and Kyle is psyched to get out on the water without having to paddle :)
Casey is doing great...I joined a gym and she was having some rough times leaving mommy to go to the nursery while I worked out...but it seems like she may be over that as the last time we went she didn't want to leave :)
Other than that, we are hoping for some cooler weather soon--and also hoping that hurricane season passes us by ;)
Miss you all--we'll be in PA from 9/7--9/14...come and visit us here anytime!

Katie, Kyle, Casey and Jim

Hi Everyone...

All is well down here. We just had my mom, sister, niece and aunt down to visit. It was a great time. Baby Payton was a very good girl :) Enjoy the pictures of the girls!!!

Next weekend, my mom and dad are back down as they are bringing our boat :) Yup, for those of you who didn't know, we bought a boat! It is an older boat w/rebuilt engines, but hope it will serve us well for the time we are here and maybe beyond! Can't wait to get it down here and use it!

The following week, Kyle's mom, dad, aunt and uncle arrive from Thurs-Sun. Some big news from this visit will be that Kyle will become Major Kilian on Friday the 14th!!!

Hope you are all well and enjoy the pics :)

Katie, Kyle, Casey and Jimmy
