The crazy cat lady won the tie breaker for best costume. Monica, a BFM guessed the correct amount for the candy guessing game. We ended the day making our own treat, a witches hat, a spider, and a witches broom.

For Family History Day we took part in an outing to Midland Historical Museum. Marion found a picture of her grandfather. Ed found the history of the Dow Chemical where he worked for over 30 years. Joe was engaged as he recalled the famous bank robbery that happened when he was a young boy in school. We all had a great time at the Midland History Museum.

50's day atmosphere was in the air. The noon meal set the tone with all the servers in their poodle skirts passing out milkshakes and coke's. After, we got a big tickle because we had a 1951 Deluxe to ohh and ahh about. Live music from The Smith's really razzed their berries at Bickford of Midland.

Midland County Fair 2018 is in the books. Among the animals that we visited were horses, goats, very loud ducks, bunnies, sheep and cows. It was a long walk but we made it and are ready for next year.

Bickford of Midland residents were on the front porch swapping county fair stories. Our muse was a mini horse named Gem and a Banshee rooster. To end the discussion we made sure to get rsvp's for our trip to the county fair that was coming to our area the following weekend.

Mary B's enjoyed a day out in the sun, soaking their feet in the lavender scented pool. While glistening in the sunshine, with the beach music playing, they munched on some fresh juicy fruit and warm fudge brownies. Our Mary B's beach day was a huge success and now they want summer all year round.

We had an excellent time at The Midland Center for the Arts. We took in the Dinosaur exhibit and the Hall of Ideas. The robotic dinosaurs were so life like, when they move for the first time you are caught off guard at the great technology. When we found out that most of the dinosaurs are over 60 million years old we felt like spring chickens. Some of us made our own fireworks on a digital screen, went for a simulated tractor ride and watched the kids on the TV 5 weather screen. This is a first time outing, but we will definitely be back. ROAR!

We came. We saw. We conquered the Midland County Fair. It was a beautiful day for our residents and staff to check out the horse barns, pig pens and rabbit cages. We strolled down memory lane for some since they haven't been back to a fair in more than 20 years. See you next year!

YeeHaa! All of our cowboys and cowgirls enjoyed the mini horse, goats and chicken at the Bickford Corral. We all enjoyed music from Over the Hill Gang where the saw was played as an instrument. People are still talking about the western goodies and of course the rootbeer floats.

The paparazzi was at the branch last night as we held our annual Easter fashion show! Yes the top models were dressed in their Easter best. Each model had moments on the runway and boy did they shine! Pure happiness and joy was observed on Resident faces! The fashion was beautiful, however, the models were out of this world! It was a lot of fun with some unexpected twirling and bowing for applause! Enjoy the pictures. A big thank you to all the BFM that took time to bring in their little ones to share!
