The whole family came up to celebrate this last hoorah at the Longview house and to visit Lolly and Shirley in Marshall. Lolly will be turning a young 94 in August!
Betty told me recently that Lolly has quite a way with babies and "spoke their language." She hasn't lost her abilities -Wilder talked up a storm and showed off rolling about. They were both in their element.
Not being able to attend Brooke & Joe's wedding in Mexico, we shared the experience with them via photos, as well as the beautiful video played at the rehearsal dinner.
We gathered at one of Marshall's fine restaurants across from the historic courthouse for an early Father's Day celebration.
This child is happily chomping on a RED ONION. He winces at watered down juice I put in his sippy cup, but he devours onions. Someone please explain that to me.
This was also a special moment. Betty dropped off some birthday flowers for her best friend's (Joan) mother. It was a real treat to get to meet the lovely lady I've heard so much about -and what fun shenanigans these two used to get up to! These wild things cruising the root beer stands in Joan's hotrod... you go girls!
