More Reunions

After our reunions with old friends and former students in Findlay, we traveled east to Twinsburg for a few days to visit our son and his family. We just relaxed and didn't even take any pictures.

Then on Friday, we drove up to Lincoln Park, Michigan to visit our friend, Bob, and his family for several days. On Saturday, we drove to my brother's house in Westland (about a half hour away) for a family get together. Got to see my big bro, my 3 nieces, my grand niece, my two grand nephews, my nephew in law, my sister in law's two sisters and my brother's lady. It was a get together not only for us but because it was Gerry's birthday. And I hadn't seen the two sisters in about 15 years. Lots of fun seeing everyone.

After a wonderful evening with family and friends, we headed back to Bob's. Yesterday, Bob and his friend, Richard, treated us to a boat trip on the Detroit River. Joining us were Bob's daughter, son in law, and granddaughter. We left from the pier at Wyandotte and cruised south going by Grosse Ile and back up by Bois Blanc (Boblo Island) and Amherstburg, Canada. It was so relaxing and a lot of fun.

It was a great day, then we headed back to Bob's for corn on the cob and Chicken kabobs on the grill served by our master chef, Richard.
So far it has been a fantastic trip. Gaining a lot more weight than I would like, but hey, I'm on vacation!!!
