They visited the end of May. Watching the Memorial Day parade from our front porch was more fun with them. We packed up the car to go on our day trips. One day to Pymatuning, a favorite of my dad's. How can you pass up the carp in the spill way or the natural history museum? Dad couldn't and we often made the trip.

The best of all these expeditions was being together. I loved the places we went and am grateful the experiences. Hanging out in the yard with my sister and niece or in the living room watching TV, walking to Erikson's were just as delightful. Feeling like a bigger family made me so happy I still miss those times.
Jody also graduated from high school this year. She and Dan had gone to prom. Dan wore his Marine dress blues to match Jody in her powder blue gown. I didn't go to graduation, but Mom and Dad went. I rode my bike around the church's circle, eying the cars turning into School Street.
Life is good with wonderful three year old.
