Michigan Trip

We all had a great time in Michigan visiting Grandma and Grandpa. We had a great time even though the weather did not cooperate as much as we would have liked. We didn't get a boat ride in or a campfire. We did get to ride an antique firetruck in the pouring rain, go swimming almost every day, visit a museum, visit a playground, got o Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, and attend the Traverse City Film Festival. Not too bad. Here are a few of the pictures.

Some funny moments...

Addie: Why is Grandma's house so small?
note: Grandma's house is about 3 times the size of ours just with a third of the "stuff" strewn about.

When we arrived home the girls were super snuggly towards Brian. It was like they hadn't seen him in a week. I guess they were so busy with their cousins and Grandparents they missed him a little.

Addie was swimming and she says to Grandpa "Come on in Superman."

Halfway through walking up the sand dunes Edith sat down. She just was in love with the sand and could not bear to not be playing with it any longer. We tried to move her along, but she just returned to the original spot she sat in and played and played.
