Family Photos from Michigan Trip

  Cherry Festival Parade
Finally, my friends, now that I am home I have time to show you the photos from our quick trip down to Michigan to see a couple of our children and their families.
I had thought that I would have at least a few minutes to do a post or two while on the road, but that sure wasn’t the case!
We started in Traverse City with our son’s family.
This is a photo from the last parade of the Cherry Festival that we attended.
You can see from Reece’s expression he’s a bit disappointed with the parade.
He had attended the smaller Kingsley 4th of July parade and had made a candy haul that was equal to that of  Halloween Eve.
So the fact that there were only two floats that threw any candy was a bit of a downer for him:>(
It didn’t take him too long to forget about the candy once the parade got into full swing with the marching bands and floats though.
That’s a good boy!
Back home in the yard, our Little Brig is showing off his t-ball expertise!
And Reece is the Happy Camper now playing with the belated birthday presents his Nannie and Papa brought for him.
After a quick day trip down to Kalamazoo, we finally arrived at our daughter’s in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
We did go to Presque Isle for the Bog Walk, but it was so overcast that I didn’t bother with the camera.
I wish now I had taken more photos now…
As you can see our Lammie is still crazy about his new puppy and giving her lots of love and attention.
And the night before we left I snapped this photo of Emily braiding Starlet’s hair.
I remember well doing Emily’s hair when she was young and she wore the same expression on her face, as if to say,
“Mom, do I have to have my hair braided”?
Starlet came home with us for a week, so I’ll have plenty more photos of her to share as the week progresses.
I haven’t visited with our Alberta g’children since our trip back from the Yukon, but here is a photo our son sent last week of  Camden, Conner, and Lexy at play.
They appear to be full of plenty of vim and vigor!
I love seeing the children and the grands too, but I am ever so glad to be back to Home Sweet Home again.
Like Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home”!

  1. Kimberly,Beautiful pictures of your grand babies and family. There is nothing better than being able to visit family, except when it's time to return home.

  3. Hi Kimberly… Wow—looks like you all had a great time in Michigan visiting family there… Grandchildren are wonderful.. Mine are almost all grown up now.. The youngest is now 16. But–the best thing about grandchildren is that WE can spoil them and enjoy them and then SEND THEM HOME… haHave a great week/weekend… Hope you enjoy(ed) my post today about the Steam Locomotive Train ride we took.. I have a real passion for old trains since Daddy worked for the railroad…Hugs,Betsy
