  1. Wonderful photos from such a happy visit to MN. Thanks for sharing them with us. Dad and I loved having your family home with us. Particularly nice that you were here to celebrate with the whole family at the baby shower. Loved the professional photos that Murray took of the kids and the last one of Genna is amazing. Miss you. Have a great Golden Birthday, Genna...followed in 5 more days with Max's first birthday and Auntie Helen 4 days later. Lots to be joyous about. We will be celebrating the 4th with Johnny. Excellent blog- thanks so much.
    Love, Grandma and Grandpa
