We had a break between summer sessions and we flew up to Wisconsin for my dad's 75th birthday party. My stepmother had the party at their cabin on Lake St. Croix. We were there for a long weekend. The weather was gorgeous. We got to visit with both of my sisters, and my dad's three sisters and about 45 other people. My stepmother has 6 children so it makes for a big gathering with children's spouses and the grandchildren. We ate like little piggies. Dad took us for a pontoon boat ride. It was a blast.
Jim's daughter Randi took care of our furry children, the garden and the house while we were gone. Good job, Randi! Thank you!
We're back home in the desert. This is the painting that I talked about in the previous post. I was playing with colors. I know it's not my best painting, but I like the colors if I do say so myself:)
