My mother has her own cowboy town

Hello Milan City Residents,
This past Mother's Day, my family visited my mom and my stepdad's house in Pittsford, Michigan--which is just outside of Hillsdale. For the past several months, they have been building a cowboy town in their back yard. My mother's great-grandchildren were deputized and encouraged to "arrest" any of the adults for misbehavior, including using inappropriate language or bad manners. If arrested we were handcuffed and put into the jail.
It was really good time, I just wanted to share these photos of the cow boy town. It's a very special project my mom, (Sylvia [Boelter] Stiles) and my stepdad, (Roger Stiles) have been working on. The little ones really enjoyed it!
