Russ is the second one from the front with the white flag
Russ with Steve
Russ and I
We had lunch at Chili's for one of those hamburgers that Russ loves
We got two blessings during our trip to "Great Lakes", One of course was to be there with Russ, and the other was; 3 more of our precious clan drove over from Ohio and joined us. We enjoyed almost 2 days with Jon, Marie and baby Zane. What a time we had. We hugged, talked, laughed, ate, walked on the beach of Lake Michigan and celebrated Jon's Birthday and Mother's Day (it was all like one long Mother's Day Celebration to me.)
Uncle Russ and baby Zane
Jon and Marie and baby drove back to Ohio Saturday night and Steve and I flew back home on Sunday. Russ returned to the Navy base, and will fly out some time this week to Pensacola to begin his training.
Life of course is always waiting; school at home with Eddie, soccer with Olga and Eddie, Olga's fund raiser band concert, and of course there is always the laundry, all of which swallowed us up almost as soon as we got home ( I was glad to hear that Grandma Jo was worn out from hauling kids around in our sted...not glad that she was worn out I should say, but that I haven't just imagined that Steve and I are worn out from running so much lol).
