Sorry, I won't be able to make it.  I'm still in KC with kids.  Been here sine 4/28.  Daughter asked me to come out and help.  Son-in-law had back surgery May 29.  He is doing well.  Daughter had hip surgery 7/1 and they have a new puppy that is not house broken yet.  Sometimes I don't know if I'll ever get home.  Every one have a good time - sorry I'm going to miss it (mini)- hopefully next year.
