We took a trip to Battle Creek yesterday to visit my Dad's grave at the cemetery. April 19th was the 11th anniversary of his passing. Every year around this time I get together with my siblings and we go to the cemetery and then someplace for lunch.
I think we have a great tradition that I do enjoy even thought its a somber event we are remembering. It is a wonderful time visiting with my siblings and their families. I don't see my nieces and nephews often so its fun catching up on what they are doing and how much they have grown!
This is my nieces, Sophia and Gabriella. Sophia is very shy around men she doesn't know, so when she was put in my lap for a group picture we could not get her to smile! So we decided to do an old time picture pose. You know the one where they don't smile! It was very hard to do but we caught this picture between my fits of laughter!
