Visiting Collaterial Cousins

Dave (my hubby) and I had a wonderful two day visit with my collateral cousin Leroy in Lake Zurich, IL.  The weather couldn't be better, I mean I couldn't have ordered the beautiful weather we had.  My grandmother and Leroy's grandmother were sisters, so our great-grandparents is our connection.

Leroy and his lovely wife, Ellen invited other family members over for a BBQ.  It was the first time they met Dave.  It was so great, very relaxing, cool weather, couldn't have been better.  The next day Leroy and Ellen drove Dave and I up to Lake Geneva, WI to have lunch with one of their daughters and grand-kids.  It was so good to see her again.  We hadn't seen them since her 6 year old twins were infants.

Our visit was short, only two days but it was memorable in so many ways.
