Big Birthday Bash

Last weekend we went to the farm in Maine for Dad and Aunt Marilyn's 75th birthday celebration. What a great day, to see my Dad and his bride, Vira, and my brother and sister in law, Dave and Pat. Lots and lots of cousins and their kids. It was amazing to see them all grown up, some with kids of their own! (Can't dwell on how old we have gotten!) The hula hoop competition was for kids of all ages! When Jimmy played a rousing Happy Birthday on his harmonica, we all laughed and cried, and it was a time to remember how cherished every generation is.

Summer is almost gone and the grandkids will be back to school tomorrow. Nathan and Andrea came over in the morning for a bag of fabric scraps. They made a very nice tablerunner and each of them sewed and stuffed a pincushion. Both of them returned in the afternoon bearing these lovely gifts. It is a joy to have creative grandbabies!
