We left the Sleeping Bear Dunes area July 5 and drove up to see my cousin Shari & family who were at their family cottage near Torch Lake. Today is Shari's birthday - she's now my age for a few months!
Our kids, all 3rd cousins, had a very lovely lunch together while the adults ate out on the deck overlooking the lake. We talked and talked.
We "facebooked" each other about the get together, and "texted" afterwards about how we wish we lived closer. We also had this good-bye portrait taken. What a fun time!
