In case you missed it, we’ve been a tour of the south.
On Saturday, we caravanned to Sedalia, Mo for Jeremy’s grandfather’s 90th birthday. When you’re 90, a birthday party is a big family reunion. First we ate at Golden Corral (blech!), then we went to Jeremy’s grandpa’s house for the rest of the afternoon. I got to meet two of Jeremy’s cousins I had never met before and get to know his family better. It was such a great day. His grandparents couldn’t have been happier to have us all there. One of Jeremy’s aunts made us all bright yellow t-shirts with the Lithuanian flag on them. Jeremy’s grandfather was born in Lithuania and immigrated to the US when he was just a little boy.
This day was too good to ruin with too many words, so I’ll give it to you mostly in pictures.
After pictures and dessert, it was time for serious baggo/cornhole/bean bag toss play.
Once we finished playing, I went inside to watch Jeremy’s aunt use her spinning wheel. Wow! I am really glad we don’t have to make our own wool anymore. I would be naked if we did. Jacque was a natural;I needed serious assistance.
I think everyone had a great day.
After the party we all headed back home to get some sleep. Sunday would be another full day.
