On Saturday, July 21, 2012, we celebrated the birth of our Jack and Lily who actually turned one on 7/11. It was a great time with friends, neighbors and relatives, all coming together to celebrate the birth of our twin grandchildren, Jack and Lily. It was a great day for a party with home brewed beer by Jim and all the fixings, also prepared by Jim. The birthday cakes were made by Lauri, our daughter in law, and Jack and Lily sure enjoyed digging into them by the looks of the pictures. Deb and I are so blessed to be able to have all of our children, and grandchildren, close to us so we can see them often. That’s not something that is too normal these days as once kids go to school and complete their studies, then they are off to get a job, and unfortunately that usually isn’t in Michigan. I know this by my business also as a photographer who has about 50% of brides living in different states now, although they were born and raised here. I think our family is so close that that wasn’t going to be an option for our kids. If they told us they were going to move they would have to deal with some very upset parents that’s for sure. So here is the birthday party of Jack and Lily. Next up, in a few weeks, our next little one, Elyse’s first birthday party. Enjoy!
