Thursday, Grandma Nadella Koehn of Tribune joined them as they celebrated Emily Koehn's 18th birthday at the "Melting Pot." Judy said they had cheese fondue, meat fondue and chocolate fondue. Way more food than they could possibly eat, but lots of fun! On the way home Friday, they visited with Larry's Aunt Donna Campbell in Fowler. Donna's children, Kay Dell McKnown and Kurt Campbell and wife Deb were also there, and they enjoyed visiting with them also.
