(Joliet, IL) Hi 76 Lo 48 -- We said our goodbye's last night to Frank and his family, they left to return to the St. Louis area early this morning. We got home too late last night to post pictures of our step-granddaughter Ellice's graduation party.

The food was catered, and there was plenty of it.
Over 70 people came. We were thankful for the great weather.
Me and my two boys, Rick on the left, and Frank.
Our grandson Jack (Rick's son) playing beanbag toss (or as it's sometimes called, Cornhole). Jack's teamed up with Cody.
Frank and Jim trying their hand at the game.
The older grandkids played computer games. Kendall, Kyle (reading) and Joey.
Rick and Laura’s basement is a shrine to the Chicago Blackhawks.
This picture is one whole wall.

We didn’t do much today. It was windy but very pleasant so we both took a walk around the park. We also watched the NASCAR race, and Jim switched back and forth between the race and the Memorial golf tournament. Nice to see Tiger back on the winning track. Tonight we'll finish up the mini-series Hatfields & McCoys. We've enjoyed it so far.
