Michigan wedding of George & Anne

George and Anne's wedding in Michigan, near Ann Arbor.

It was beautiful, and love was bursting out every seam.

We spent lots of time in hotels this week. We got pretty good at it.

Phil's moving Best Man speech. Please note Sigrid being thoroughly "moved" in the background.

These two love being around each other.

And these two, too!

Such a special day.
All our love & blessings to you, George and Anne.

Michigan to Chicago

We stopped for a very brief visit to the Michigan dunes, then headed onward to Chicago.

The Chicago visit was short and sweet, and one of the sweetest parts by far was cousins all together, and great-grandchildren gathered around their great-grandparents.

Flora is TWO

We were on the road all day, but today, our little dragon is officially TWO.

We started at a Denny's in Westlake, OH, continued the celebration at the Fiftie's Grill & Dairy in Jamestown, NY, and finally wound things up at dear old
home, home, home!



Memorial Day weekend

At certain points, you just need to stop taking pictures, because the world - life - is too beautiful.
It cannot be captured.

Cayuga Lake at Myers Point:

We had  visit from Philly friends Greg & Diana, and their little beauties, Dakota & Amara.
Kota & Sigrid were instant besties.

Our weekend involved lots of playgrounds and ice cream.

And some Elmo and this dried-up baby snapping turtle that Papa found while fishing with Greg.
