Happy B-Day Izzy

Sweet little Isabelle is two years old! Adam and Melanie hosted a party/cookout at their new home on Cherry Blossom Drive. What a great address for Traverse City!

All of Barb's kids and grandkids were there - Peter and Melissa and the girls arrived from Kalamazoo just in time for burgers. They're in town for the Cherry Festival. It's always so enjoyable to see everybody and catch up on the latest news. The best part was watching all of the kids play in the water and squirt each other! I only got wet once. It was a really hot day, so I didn't mind.

Jim H. is home recovering from surgery - we missed him - he would have loved this get-together.

We got a tour of the house (air conditioned) and a chance to talk to everybody.

Happy Birthday Izzy

This is the first day of the Cherry Festival, and they certainly planned the weather well - couldn't be nicer. We've been driving past the venue downtown and watching them set up the tents, etc. It's always a mob scene - so many people - it seems to me that there are more people this year - yesterday at the Visitor Center Dick saw 180 people in three hours.
