Sumertime - JULY 2018

The town celebration of the Fourth starts with a parade.  It has been a long time since the whole family could enjoy the parade together as it marched past the house on Marr.  Grandpa and Butch had the hot rod parked in the drive, but wouldn't put it in the parade.  A few friends took rides in it after the parade.
 I was quite amused by the party hats and balloons on SnapChat's map on both Carrie and me for our shared birthday on July 6.
 My present from Roman was a family dinner at Mancy's in Toledo.  It was the first time in many years that the family was not at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island for the 4th with the other grandma. 
The day before my birthday a package arrived from my brother snd sister-in-law.  They wanted to mark my 80th birthday in a special way so my sister-in-law had made this beautiful quilt for me.  It is something I will treasure all of my life and pass on to my descendants.
 Gabby and Abby were each allowed to bring a friend to the Lakehouse for a visit.  Gabby, of course, brought her boy friend, Earl and Gabby brought Rina. 
 I guess Earl thought Gabby's catch was less than spectacular.
Dinner was at everyone's favorite restaurant, Jerry's on the Lake.  Good food and plenty of goofing around.
Abby went fishing at dusk and, as usual, caught a more-than-respectible bass.
