2 weeks of family time
Long time no post! My sister and her husband were in from Florida, and my brother and his family from Colorado for almost two full weeks. I took some vacation time and was able to spend a lot of it up at my parent's house all together. It was a wonderful time filled with Downton Abby watching, Michelle came with me to my bible study, making cookies, naps, movies, good food, gun shooting, game nights, a trip to Ann Arbor, relaxing, reading, playing with my nieces, mom & dad's choir concert, time with an out-of-state aunt and uncle. One thing we had been planning on was a 70th birthday/ retirement party for our mom. (after being a nurse for 47 years it was time! (actually she said she could've worked a little longer!)) But she totally earned it. It was fun to plan the party together and do something to honor and celebrate her. She was happy. So without further ado, here is a long stream of photos from our visit. I'm thankful for my wonderful family!
