Uncle Jack's 90th

We took a road trip down to Winona, Minnesota, this past weekend to help Uncle Jack celebrate his 90th birthday. I had not met the cousins on this side of JP's family, and it had been quite some time that they were able to get together as well.

Despite the stormy weather and over-zealous Sheriff and Police in town*, it was a huge success! Jack didn't know what all the fuss was about and thought we should have waited until he turned 100 to make such a big deal.  As usual, Aunt Phyl was gracious enough to open her kitchen for preparation, her porch for beverages and her living room for oodles of retold stories that brought back many memories and lots of laughs!

Until we meet again...  let's not wait for someone else to hit such a milestone birthday, eh?


*Three different cars of Foremans were pulled over in various areas by officials this weekend. No fines were paid {thankfully}, but it was obvious that the police & Sheriff in town were keeping busy.
