This morning we left home and headed for Fowlerville, MI to attend my cousin Carol's 60th. surprise Birthday party. My GPS said it would take 1hour and 45minutes. Actually it only took us 1 hour 15minutes. And NO Speeding! So being a little too early we stopped at the new Walmart store that had just been open for about a year. Very nice store in Fowlerville.
We looked around for about 30 minutes, I being the only one who found something to buy. A gallon of Prestone anti-freeze for the Buick and some energy saver light bulbs for our bathroom.
We arrived in plenty of time before Carol arrived. When she first saw everyone she looked a little overwhelmed! It was truly a SURPRISE Birthday party! Job well done by all the others in the Eastwood family to make this happen.
It was a wonderful party enjoyed by all. The family members who couldn't make it to the party surely missed a good time.
It has been at least 7 years since I've seen any of the Eastwoods. It was really great talking to them.
They had a delicious lunch, with more food than we all could eat. Mmm Good too! Well done Kathleen, Beth, and Mary-Ann. The three sisters who I noticed worked hard making sure everything was set for this party. Sorry if I missed giving credit to anyone, the party was a great hit!
My Aunt Mary, Carol's mother, sure enjoyed everyone that attended also. She is such an energetic woman! What ever you are doing Aunt Mary, keep doing it! You look great!
I also got to talk to Pat and Tommy Eastwood. Guys...it was really great to talk and get re-acquainted again. We really need to get together more often and stay in touch.
We walked over to Aunt Mary's first house. I believe John Eastwood now lives there. Wow what a difference than what I remember. There has been much remodeling done and it looks great!
John was still at work and we had to leave to head back home. We sure would have enjoyed talking to him. Maybe next time....and there WILL be a next time!
We had a nice ride home, taking in the country setting. Arriving home we took a short nap and upon awaking we headed to Walmart for some grocery shopping. Seems today I donated quite a bit of my hard earned cash to the Walmart company!
It was an exceptionally wonderful day and adventure.
HAPPY 60TH. BIRTHDAY CAROL ! We wish you many, many more birthdays to come.
Until another adventure, be safe and God Bless.
