Sometimes you don't have to look far to see the hand of God...
Dave and I introduced our two oldest grandaughters to Niagara
Falls last weekend.
The Maid of the Mist and all the trimmings that goes with the Falls experience....and then a day at the Canada Wonderland Amusement Park. Big FUN.

Summer wouldn't be complete without baking Blueberry Muffins and anything else Blueberries can go into...
a little orange Marm, butter..delish.

Lots of sunny day pool time... Aqua dancers!!!!

The Family at the 4th of July Parade in Glen Arbor Mich.
Best parade ever!!!!!
Notice the blue Mowhawk!!!!!
I figured..."Why Not"!

Have you ever bought a cake because.........
It Matched your Living Room?
I did...

Some of what we've been up to lately...
We have both been moved to tears by your sweetest of sweet comments....and the love and concern expressed by those of you we have never laid eyes on ,yet have come to love.
Thank You.
We have an appt. with the Uof M "Think Tank" July 23rd...
Until then we are about the business of making memories and living each day to the fullest!
Trusting you all are too!
xoxo Kathy....and Dave.

  8. Hi Kathy and Dave
    So nice to see you enjoying yourselves. You know I'm a Canadian? So nice that you were in my part of the country. Isn't Niagara so cool? And Wonderland, how fun. I'm about 4 hours away from there. Been there done it many times with my mom and dad when I was little. I actually left my very first ring my daddy gave me on the ledge of a sink after washing my hands a little restroom there. I think I was about 5 years old. I never did go back to find it. I was soooooooo sad. The falls were so big also when I was small. Still are, but things have changed. LOVE NIAGARA.
    Stay positive my friends.
    Love Claudie
    P.S. Yes I match my caked to my house.... pink, pink and more pink : )

  9. I was starting to worry when you hadn't been around for a couple of weeks - so glad you were off having a great time with your grandies.
