Here's a photo of our birthday cake:
It tasted even better than it looked!
We also managed to squeeze in a tour of the Ford Rouge Factory where we watched F-150 trucks being assembled and a visit to Frankenmuth where we feasted on their famous chicken dinner and left a few dollars at an antique store and at Bronner's. We rounded out the weekend with a quick visit to the Strawberry Festival at St. Florian's Church where my cousin and I were baptized 60 years ago this month. (Don't click on that link if you're at work -- the singing choir will tip people off that you aren't working!)
My sister, Glenn and I flew home this morning and touched down at Lindbergh Field in the pouring rain -- a rare thing at any time, but especially in May -- a month that typically brings us what we call "May Gray" but usually no rain.
Pumpkin and Darby were happy to see us and kept me company while I took the following random photos of rain drops, and flowers and vegetables that are growing so fast you can watch it happen!
