Michael & Nicole Metz and Brycen & Austin of Rushmore joined them on Sunday for tubing at the Kahle cabin on Lake Shaokotan after taking in the parade in Ivanhoe. John and Jacob drove a Steiger 600 in the parade—the largest Case International tractor made. Sidney spent two nights with Morgan Metz, went to a movie and did girl things—nails and makeup. Chris, Gene, Michael and Austin even got Brycen’s swing set put together. It was a week filled with family fun.
