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.
