We had a wonderful time celebrating our grandfather's 70th birthday party. We had a great time with lots of laughter and joy. We went fishing and I was the only one who caught a fish:-) Many memories were made and we are looking forward to make more -- hopefully next year!
Thank you! (Our daughter had stayed at this house before.)
