We were trying to get it all done before our guests arrived! I hadn't seen my cousin Robert and his wife, Ely, since their wedding in 1970! We had kept in touch over the years by phone and Christmas cards. The visit was wonderful! It was as though we did this all the time!
We played tourists on Lake Michigan. Here they are with Navy Pier behind them, and the beautiful Chicago skyline . . .
