We had been up north for Frank's work conference so when he was done conferencing we left and went to spend the day with our Traverse City Family. Lili's birthday was the week before mine and I hadn't seen her so the first thing we did is take her out shopping for her birthday gift.
We let her drive.
She did a great job!
And she came home with lots of loot.
Then they took us out for dinner for my birthday.
We went to a restaurant called Fischer's and it was delicious!!
When we got home we played cards and visited and laughed and spilled wine and laughed and had the husbands think they were going to cut us off and laughed and laughed and laughed.
Just one more thing I want to show you. These were new since I was last there and I was so danged impressed that I had Frank take a photo so I could share it with all of you.
See these paintings?
They were done by Jen, Lil and Spence.
Aren't they wonderful??
Wouldn't they make a great Christmas gift??
Do you think they will get the hint??
