Happenings

Tim and I say "oh we never do anything, we have such a boring life" but in reality it seems we are doing something all the time! I guess when we say we never do anything, it's that we never get to do anything with our good friends. Unfortunately, everyone lives so scattered over the country. Tim's cousin Steve calls all the time and every time we talk to him we're doing 'something' and he always says 'man, you guys are always doing something!!' and we say 'but we really aren't!!' Does anyone ever feel this way?

In September we went to my friend Angie's wedding in Saginaw. It was great weather outside which was good because the ceremony was outdoors. It was nice to go somewhere that we haven't been in a LONG time. I kept thinking back to the good 'ole CMU days when we had to drive to Midland/Saginaw or Lansing to do some decent shopping. We all know how wonderful Mt. Pleasant was for shopping!!



Earlier this month, we packed up the car (Milo included) and headed out to Chicago to visit my parents. We hadn't been out there in a long time and it was great to make that trip again. Milo does so well on trips like that and he loves to visit new surroundings! I'm sure the cats had a nice vacation as well with him gone. Our big excursion while we were out there was to visit
Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. What a beautiful lake with such a rich history! Many of the names we know from history and present day own homes on this lake. Also, it is home to the first camp (like summer camp) in the United States which started in the late 1800's. It has since been used by many different organizations. Also, the first 18 hole golf course was developed on this lake. If you ever have a chance to visit this area it is well worth the trip!

Here are a few examples of the typical 'home' on Lake Geneva!





Tim and Milo enjoying the great nature trails Carol Stream, IL has to offer.



Also during this month we painted pumpkins, visited a haunted hayride/corn maze, celebrated Tim's grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary, and went to two halloween parties! We had the opportunity to see a Piston's game from Tim's company's suite at the Palace and last week my mother came to stay with us for a few days.

This is Tim's masterpiece. A picture of Milo!



Here we are, hard at work on our pumpkins!



We are looking forward to Election Day!!! I cannot wait to see how everything turns out. What an exciting time in our history.

So good to hear what you've been up to! I feel the same way. We're never really doing anything too exciting, yet we always seem to be busy.
