What a wonderful weekend.

It started by picking up Mike and Marlene is Grand Rapids Thursday night.  After a six hour delay, they finally arrived.  The guys went up to a cabin fishing and the girls hung out.  Down to the lake, little happy hour, some cards, some cooking.
Maggie and Marlene       

We celebrated Mother's 91st birthday.  All of us kids were there for her!
And of course, we know who stole the show!
Joslyn is growing.....she's squeaking, grabbing her toes, rolling over to one side, fingers in her mouth, and happy as can be.

We enjoyed each other, lots of food, and we were all so thrilled that we were able to celebrate another year with our Mom.

And today our fun ended.  Everyone went back to their lives.....great seeing you Mike and Marlene!  We're so glad you joined us.
Love, Babs~
