It was that annual
our family enjoys at the end of
August every year.
Today is daughter Lindsay's 22nd birthday,
but we celebrated yesterday...
with Grandma and lots of hugs.
We are a HUGGY family.
We actually got a family photo...
this RARELY happens.
I set up the camera on the tripod and
ran into the shot.
This morning, we hauled Sonny
and all his stuff back to college.
This year he's a sophomore,
so it wasn't as stressful.
In fact, I looked back at my blog from the
wild weekend last year
and the temps were in the 90s for move-in.
So much easier on the old mom.
Sonny's happy, too because most of
his classes are right across the street
from his dorm in this building.
It was fun to snoop around
and see his labs and lecture halls.
Now I can picture him there.
Speaking of pictures...we have to drive
through the country to get to
Michigan State University and lots of
barns dot the landscape.
Oddly, I have never seen this one...
well, it WAS a barn.
I think I noticed it because one of the
members shared a "skeleton" barn
last week and I loved it.
Up the path from the skeleton
was this little barn-like shed...
I LOVE that country look.
Hubby was a sweetie to
stop the car and let me take
There are so many more...
but I'll have to wait until I'm alone
in the car.
Lindsay leaves for grad school
then it will be back to
