  1. Kathy – The nut doesn’t fall very far from the tree. YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY! Thank you for sharing them with us.

    Speaking of trees …

    Kathy: Pictures are lovely…..of lovely people……
    another suggestion for a book to read:

    THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS by Arundhati Roy.

    • Kathy says:

      Fountainpen, I’ve heard that book is great. Glad you like the pics. Kiah and I are headed to the movies to see “Alice in Wonderland” tonight. The big question: can I stay up til 11 p.m. or midnight???

  3. Marianne says:

    Your dad’s so cute! Wonderful family photos!

    • Kathy says:

      My dad had just said he didn’t like his photo. And you’re comment came in! We laughed so much. Nobody seems to like to see their own photograph. I think they all look adorable. 🙂

  4. Dawn says:

    Nice family! Your father has great university taste!

    • Kathy says:

      My mom, Kiah and myself all graduated from Michigan State. And so did a lot of the other grandkids. I was wearing a U of M sweatshirt. Ha ha. When you pay tuition at a college it becomes dear to you, as well. Christopher did his undergrad at Univ of Michigan.

    Beautiful people looking happy:)

  6. Christie Eagan says:

    Love the pics, the family all look wonderful. I really don’t think any of them have aged at all… as for your fathers attire, GO GREEN…

    • Kathy says:

      Christie, one of the reasons I posted this on Facebook was to alert you that there were family pics! And I knew you’d love Dad’s attire. (By the way, I dreamed about you the first night here…odd, hmmm? So you’re sort of along on this trip.)

  7. Cindy Lou says:

    It’s good to ‘see’ everyone again – and all looking great! My favorites today? Kiah in the surf – she looks like a dancer somehow – and you two in the back of the boat. Momma and her girl 🙂

    Next time your folks are up, you’ll have to bring them to Carla’s – Doug’s a big MSU fan. He and your dad can talk Spartan!

    • Kathy says:

      Cindy Lou, I’m not surprised you liked the photos of Ms. Kizzy. The Momma and her girl probably reminds you of you and Ms. Jen-Jen. OK, we’ve all got a date to go to Carla’s next time they visit. You better be there, though!

  8. Doe says:

    I’m not sure how I got to your blog but I’m certainly enjoying it! I live in north Florida (outside Jacksonville) and it tickles me how you are loving our “warm” weather. We’re all freezing half to death up here waiting on it to warm up! LOL
    We haven’t seen an 80 degree day in three months! Love your pictures, love your writing. Used to know a girl from Marquette a long time ago.
    You also have a lovely family!
    God Bless!

    • Kathy says:

      Hi, Doe! Another Floridian! (I am a temporary one, until Thursday morning.) Sorry it’s not warmer way up near Jacksonville. It’s actually a little chilly here today. But when you come from a place where the temps are in the 40’s and 50’s to a place where it’s in the 70’s it feels HOT!! Thank you for visiting and liking our family photos. Wonder if your friend still lives in Marquette?

  9. Sigh…at least it is sunny up here today so these photos are not too depressing to look at. 😉 Still trialing you by a good 25 degrees. You all look to be having a marvelous time.

    Got a tip for you, if you got a flash on your camera, use it for shots like these. Maybe there’s a scene or setting for it. What you need is some fill flash to open up the shadows. Using flash on sunny days seems counter productive but it really does make a world of difference.

    Drooling over all the seafood you’ve been enjoying.

    • Kathy says:

      Guess what, Scott? It looks like the temps are going to PLUMMET to about 34 by this weekend. It’s about 55 at home right now. So I’m going back into winter, looks like.

      I love your tips! I tried a flash today. Although I think very evil thoughts about Sony CyberShot’s flash capabilities. I’m afraid it’s going to look like a blinding flash of Greek cheese on fire rather than open up the shadows. Next time we do a family shot, though, will give it a try.

      I really would like YOUR camera. 🙂

  10. Hi Katy nice pics of the peninsula, have always wanted to go their hope, i will ever get a chance to visit the beautiful beaches, soak my feet in the salty sea water and dig a big deep hole in the beach sand.

    • Kathy says:

      OK, harshit, I am sending you positive energy that you will someday get your wish and soak your feet in the salty water. The sun will shine on you and you’ll dig a hole in the sand all the way to China. (That’s what we tried to do when we were kids.)

  11. Doe says:

    It is finally warming up a little! No, my friend, the last I heard, was somewhere in California. We’ve lost touch along the years.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay! I will keep up with your blog as long as you do this, I enjoy it so much!

  12. quietpaths says:

    You have a lovely, lovely family. I adore all those wonderful smiles!

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
