|Louise Kauffmann Luppens|
I do not need to wonder what topic to write about for my Slice of Life today. What I need to be doing is finishing a slide show that I am creating for my friend Ann. Their family had a huge celebration for her mother's 90th birthday this summer. What made it unique was that all four siblings and their grandchildren...great- grandchildren...cousins...and friends travelled to the Grand Tetons National Park for this festivity.

The Tetons hold a special place in the hearts of the Luppens family. They travelled to the park where they had a favorite camping spot. Their aunt, uncle and cousins from California would meet them and their time was spent hiking, fishing and swimming in the icy cold Jenny Lake. What better place could they go to celebrate Louise's 90th birthday? If my niece had not chosen that time to be married, I would have been celebrating with them....but I would NEVER miss Maggie's wedding, especially when she picked a date when I would not be travelling. (I was gone most of the summer...poor Maggie only had two dates when I would be available. How thoughtful of her. But that is from another blog post Wedding Theatre . Check it out...a unique wedding and a funny little ring bearer.)
