My aunt and uncle were married 69 years. He is still alive and kicking. The photo on the bottom left is of them on their wedding day. One of the cousins is putting a DVD together so we can all have copies of these old photos.
Here we are, enjoying ourselves. My sister, her husband, my mom and I, spent the day at Frankenmuth, MI, which isn't too far away from my aunt and uncle. The top left photo is my sister. My mother and I (she is behind my right shoulder) stayed with my aunt and uncle (on the right) as well as another aunt and uncle. My mother and aunts are sisters, they are from a family of eight children, only one of them was a boy and was born as a twin with, you guessed it, a girl.
When my (crazy, that would be crazy, fun) aunt found out I was envying her Hobby Lobby, she insisted we go after dinner on Friday night. I was tired, but how could I refuse?! (All of these photos were taken with my cell phone.) I graduated from U of M, so had tons of fun seeing all of the Michigan stuff. Apparently, I was doing a jig when my uncle was taking a picture of me with the M pumpkin, as the pumpkin is not all that blurry. I could have been laughing because we were right inside the door and customers were coming in! Can you believe it closed at 8p? I was savoring all of the merchandise. The only thing I bought was some tissue paper since anything else I would have had to lug home in my suitcase. I had to take a picture of all of the knobs, since you ladies who have a Hob Lob near you always talk about them.
I'll leave you with this last photo taken in Frankenmuth. I thought this wall of colored leaves were so pretty! The sun is right smack in our eyes so not one of the photos we took has all of our eyes fully opened. It was fun being "back home" in Michigan, especially this time of year.
