A Cousin-Fest!

Posted Monday, Sep 14th, 2009 at 6:15pm

After Annie and I went to the Michigan Women's Music Festival, we went to visit our sweet cousins in Chicago. Karen and her husband Ken have lived for a few years in a beautiful apartment overlooking Lake Michigan. Sherry and her husband Paul, moved to Chicago a little over a year ago. Here are some pictures from our trip there and Sherry and Paul's trip, two week later, here. I love that I am getting closer to my cousins. Our grandmother, Celia, would have delighted in it.

Annie, Lauren, Emily, Kayla and Zenna: Cousins!

Being silly: Silly cousins

A cool sculpture: bean

Cool optics with aforementioned sculpture: bean-close-up

A cool fountain: fountain

Pixelated water: water

Happy kids: kids

Two weeks later they came to see us. Here's a photo in my backyard. Bravo to Sage and Paul for moving the large heavy table outside. And sorry Paul for serving you two-buck-chuck!
