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:

Cool optics with aforementioned sculpture:
A cool fountain:
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!

We ventured out into the wilds of Sauvie Island to go blackberry picking. Everyone was quite good humored considering all the prickles. Photo by Janet Stein
I love this picture of Paul. He really got into picking. Photo by Janet Stein
All in all they were two great visits. Photo by Janet Stein
