Although Rebecca turned 15 during our Wisconsin trip, we celebrated with family a couple weeks later.
Grandma made a fabulous cake, as usual.
And, Aunt Nay is always a pro with the lighter.
Did you notice the AirVenture Windsock Rebecca found at Oshkosh?
We’re thankful the Lord has blessed us with Rebecca’s smile for 15 years!
We’re also especially thankful that Aunt Nay could join us. She was diagnosed with cancer shortly after Rebecca’s last birthday party and recently finished several difficult treatments. Praise God, she’s cancer-free now!
Rebecca invited family members to bring their firearms for some target practice. That’s her idea of a party:)
Uncle Ron couldn’t come, but he lent his skeet thrower. Both Rebecca and Christian successfully shot the clays Dad tossed!
I think even Uncle Matt enjoyed this redneck party!
Thank you, family, for celebrating Rebecca’s birthday with us!
We lodged at a lovely bed & breakfast during our Wisconsin vacation. This was the peaceful view from our room’s tiny private balcony.
Although Tauschek’s Bed & Breakfast was an hour drive from Oshkosh, this separation from hectic AirVenture festivities was vital to our sanity.
If you ever find yourself near Plymouth, Wisconsin, please consider staying with the Tauschek family. Steve and Mary Jane are kind, caring souls who provide delicious home-cooked breakfasts and comfy lavender-scented bedding:)

Our 20-year celebration continued at Apache Trout Grill, which overlooks Grand Traverse Bay.
While waiting for an opening in the dining room, we lounged on the deck, watching the
seagulls lakegulls and watercraft. So peaceful.
Here was the view from our dining table just barely inside the restaurant. Those accordian-style glass doors were a brilliant design choice, in my opinion. A terrific view of the bay!
By the way, my Caesar Salad with shaved Parmesan as well as the Fish & Chips were delicious, but Terry reported his burger to be rather ordinary.
