Celebrating Aunt Denise's Birthday

It was well beyond Aunt Denise's Birthday, but Gram, Rene'e and special guest Sophie spent the morning tooling around Grand Rapids, eating breakfast at the Cherie Inn, going downtown, where on Monroe, we received a special song, and ended up at Nantucket Bakery for pizza and M&M cookies.
