Great Times

During the past two weeks I’ve traveled and shared wonderful events with family members and friends.  Very special times for me!

Grandson, Kyle, was married to beautiful Kristi in Plymouth, Michigan, in a Christian ceremony performed by Hubby. This picture was shared by Kristi when they returned from their honeymoon.

Prior to the wedding we enjoyed visits with family in Kansas and a delicious rehearsal BBQ dinner hosted by daughter, Joanne. The meats were smoked by son, Merrill, and his wife, Nancy.

The week following the wedding, we went with Joanne to Hidden Lake Gardens in the Irish Hills of Michigan. . .

then on to Indiana where we spent time with my brother, David, and his wife, JoAnn. While there, I had a book signing in Marion at Midwest Coffee.

After the Indiana trip, we traveled back to Michigan for a surprise wedding shower for daughter, Joanne.

Monday evening we arrived back home. Great trip! Great times!
