Summer Vacation: The Weekend

Saturday was the Annual Gwinn Area Fun Daze. We went to the parade at 10 and then had pie (thanks to the Lutheran Church ladies!! – and to Grandma Eleanore for buying ours!). We listened to concerts by the Blue Notes Drum & Bugle Corps and the Negaunee City Band and then walked around some more. We had hot dogs and brats for lunch (I had a hot dog because the brats didn’t look very appetizing). Then we walked down to the antique/classic car show by the high school and looked at all the cars. There were some really neat ones. Before we left for home, we browsed through the Forsyth Township Museum. There’s always new displays up there, so it’s different every time I see it. After dinner, Mom and I went to the church to meet up with the rest of the ladies of the family to practice our 2 songs for church. That went well, and then we all went back to our house for birthday cake and ice cream. The rest of the family came over as well, and it was really nice seeing everyone. The cake was for Ryan – he turned 34 on Friday. Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Sunday we got up and got ready for church. Our songs during the offering and after communion went really well, and after the service we had a couple of people tell us we should make a CD. Robbie was really good during the service, and slept through part of it like he usually does. Everyone was glad to see us. After we got home, the guys went down to the lake to put the new dock together. Then Mom and Robbie and I went down and joined them and Robbie got his first experience in the lake. It was kind of scary for him, but I think he had some fun playing the shallow water by the shore after he got used to it. He didn’t like going out deeper in his floaty thing we had gotten him, though. Oh well – there’s always next year! Mom made meatloaf for supper and that sure was good! It’s nice to have mom’s good cooking again.
