Celebrating the Sunset

The sunset over Lake Michigan is one of the great things about this state we live in, and last weekend, we saw a couple of them. But first, we celebrated John's sister's July 3rd birthday..."Aunt Susan." We always think Maria looks the most like her Aunt Susan.

She received a couple of big puzzles as gifts...

The 4 girl cousins are always happy to see each other!

We went to see the sunset after supper. As we were waiting for it, I turned around and saw a sight just about as beautiful, maybe even moreso, at least to me...

The sun set again and another day was done...
