Home Again, Vacation’s Over

Here are the two albums. The first one is short, just from the actual party for mom. 62 people attended, and more than 20 cards from those who couldn’t make it. The surprise guests were mom’s brother and his wife who drove up from Mississippi, 10 years since they had seen him.

We really enjoyed the Red Cottage at Crystal and the pontoon boat rides. We had several group meals, one at Deb’s, one at the Red Cottage, and one in Lansing after the party.
