June 10 - 29, 2015
It was another one of those crazy rushed trips that we all make to see family and friends. There never seems to be enough time to squeeze in everything that we want to do or everyone that we want to see. I always thought that our retired years would be less frantic. We flew from Raleigh, NC to St Louis, MO on the 10th. Drove to Afton, MN on the 22nd. Returned to St Louis on the 27th and drove back to NC on the 29th and 30th! Guess we set ourselves up for a wild couple of weeks when we mapped that out.

truckers to honk for us.

|JAC's dance recital. I filled in as the backstage|
'Mom' for her group of twelve. Jennifer had to
fly to California for a job interview at the last minute.
|Edina Realty celebrated it's 60th year at a St Paul|

but sure enjoyed seeing lots of friends that I had

birthday with gourmet cupcakes.
Gotta smile -- we're lovin the ride!
