footprints...

of where we've been this weekend. I mentioned that we were heading out last Wednesday for Illinois to celebrate my great aunt's and great uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. We had such a lovely time. We're such a small family, and everyone is spread out. It's a rare occasion that we are all able to get together. But, I can't think of a better reason to spend time celebrating with family than a 50th wedding anniversary!

We swam.



We slipped and we slid.





Then we decided it might be better to walk.



We played piano with cousins from Switzerland that we met for the first time.



Can you tell Hazel has a flair for the dramatic?



We came across strange winged things.



But, most importantly, we helped this darling couple celebrate 50 years together...



and, toasted to many more happy years of marriage.



Happy anniversary Aunt Marty and Uncle EM!
