Last week I drove to Michigan with my sister to celebrate my great-niece's first birthday! Of course, she's the most adorable little girl in the world, as you can see from the pictures I took.

My little brother is now a grandfather, which feels kind of strange. I remember when he had hair down to his shoulders and a full beard. He doesn't have any of that now:

This is the whole family, mommy, daddy and baby:

Since I live in NY and they live in MN this is the first time I have seen the baby, and the whole family, in a long time, so this visit was very special. It was also my brother's 30th wedding anniversary, so here are some shots of everyone. This is my brother's family:

This is my father and mother, and brother and sister:

And of course, my parents are now great-grandparents, which is also wonderful. Here are three generations, skipping the second:

Driving home I got a speeding ticket in Pennsylvania. I mean, you're supposed to go 80 on I80, aren't you? The cop didn't buy it, and wrote it out. Darn. Anyway, I'll leave you with this image, of Madonna and child:


  1. You have a Beautiful family! :) 30 years of marriage?! He should write a book about their secrets to help the rest of us out! Congratulations!

  2. ouch - bummer you got a ticket but looks like a great time with family! She's a cutie!

  3. What cute photos, Nancy, how wonderful to get to spend time with your lovely family!

    Sorry you got a speeding ticket, those Policemen they get everywhere :(
