Well he did it.

After many years of many people telling him to, Jason finally did it, he even drug us all with him. I'll let the pictures explain, but first let me say it sure was a bumpy road.

This was a little side trip Jason wanted to do while we were in Michigan. It really is a town in MI with a post office inside a souvenir shop and an ice cream shop. That is all that is there. It was a really hot day, how appropriate.
Well now that we've got that out of our system you should expect only saintly behavior from us for now on.

Once a tap dancer always a tap dancer

While I was in Michigan with my Sister we were blessed to spend a day with our Grandma, what a fun and lovely lady she is. I love listening to her stories (even the ones that have a little embellishment added). At one point she got talking about her tap dancing days. As she was talking about some of the dances she did I noticed her feet moving in the steps to the dance. I asked her to show us some of her fancy foot work and she was more than happy to oblige. In this video you will see her do some steps (while sitting) to a dance she remembers after all these years. This woman amazes and inspires me!!
I love you Grandma
I'm sorry I'll try to get this video on it seems I don't know what I'm doing.

I'm Baaaack

Well here I am back in the real world, UGH. I had a great two weeks away from responsibility. The first week was awesome, 9 of us sisters including mom spent a week in MI on the lake. We had a great time visiting and catching up on each other's lives. Grandma made it up to the cottage one day and we had a great time with her.
The next week Jason and the kids came up and spent the next week at the cottage, we had a blast going to the beach each day, and a taking a few side trips. Stay tuned I'll have more posts coming with some detailed happenings from our trip.
'Till then!
