Sunday Humor

Saw this framed in a store yesterday. It made
me LOL because I could imagine myself saying
this to Mark. :D

Frank Lloyd Wright - Meyer May home in Grand Rapids, MIchigan

We toured the inside of this home on Sunday with our friends Rich and Jane. It was a wonderful experience and one I will certainly be sharing with visitors in the future.  This home is over a 100 years old which is hard to believe.  Certainly a man a head of his time.  This home was purchased by Steelcase Corporation in the 1980's and was painstakingly restored to its early 1900's state.   The general public can view it free of charge thanks to Steelcase and the wonderful docent volunteers who take you through.  Well worth the visit and I can't imagine what took us so long to seek it out.

Happy 3rd Birthday Dylan James

Today you turn 3. It seems like just yesterday you were a little bundle in our arms. The love and joy you
have brought into our lives has been immeasurable. Our wishes and dreams for you are many for you've given us so much in the time you've been with us. We had no idea how wonderful it would be to be a "grand" until you taught us. Happy birthday Dylan James Kohler. You are a true joy!

Dawn 11-11-11

First snow at dawn today, Veteran's Day and hopefully birthday to our nephew Jim's (and Jeni's) first son. An honorable day
to enter the world I'd say.

Frank Lloyd in Grand Rapids

On an afternoon walk yesterday from Matt's house we decided to hit the "hill" area nearby. We just kind of stumbled (though we knew it was here in G.R.) on the May House. It is now over 100 years old and is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built house and we thought it was amazing. A private residence until 1985, it is now owned by Steelcase and is open to the public free of charge for tours. The tour takes just over an hour. While it doesn't happen on Saturdays (two evenings and Sunday for a few hours), we are definately going to
check out May House in the next couple of weeks sometime. More pictures then!

  Sometimes mother nature makes our things her 
  own.  And sometimes she does a better job
                                                                                     than we could.

Grampa Ed's Genes

This past weekend our son Matt began working on a more open floorplan for his house. He will lose a small downstairs bedroom to enlarge the living/dining area. He will be doing some of the work himself to save $$$ and I'm proud of him for this. This is the first
step and he's now on his way. He doesn't get his "no fear" of trying from his Dad but rather from his Grandfather Ed. I like to think
just a little bit comes from me too! :)
