Cool Traveling Pics and Beauty at Home


Ah,  tunnels, of these I am not a fan.  The best part of them for me is the light at the end of them....definitely not the looming hole in front of me as we hurtle toward them.







It was a beautiful trip through the mountains, 
but not having to go through tunnels would have made it even better :)











When we got home, we were greeted to the most beautiful sunset.  U.P. Beauty

Nebraska Visitors


We also had a visit from a couple of the Nebraska relatives this summer.  One thing we can always count on when Uncle Bob arrives is that there will be golf :)

Once we finish chatting, there is a mass exodus to the backyard and everyone lines up to have their swings critiqued.







After a while critiques take place from the comfort of a chair.  Even though he is Grandma's junior by ten years, that still puts him at almost eighty--a very active eighty.









Uncle Bob, Bob, and the ubiquitous photo bomber...it wouldn't be a blogpost without him;)

A Recital, A Visit, and A Birthday



        The beginning of the summer seems so far away now, but we really did have the chance to do some fun things.  The ladies' music studio performed their spring recital at a local assisted living facility and it was really enjoyed by the residents.  James always appears to be concentrating so hard when he plays his cello.











The flute trio is always a big hit.  The girls take turns picking the piece for the next recital.
 













One of the best things about this recital, was that Nonnie and Papa got to be here to enjoy it too.  They also got to be here long enough to celebrate Benjamin's birthday with us and were here when the Iowa cousins came to visit.













Benjamin's birthday came complete with plenty of pizza, plenty of party guests, and a luscious cake courtesy of  big sis.

The perfect caption here would be:
"Oh no! Mom has the camera again!"
