Michigan Vacation pt1

A couple of weeks ago we set off on our summer vacation to Michigan...let me rephrase that, we 'drove' to Michigan for our summer vacation. Yes, it was a LONG drive but thankfully I was able to sleep most of the way; already looking like a great vaca. I was a little anxious about being in the car with all 3 kids for that long but they did much better than expected, except for the arguing of who was going to sit where. Once that was all decided all was well!! We left OKC at exactly 4am and arrived in East Lansing, Michigan at 9:30pm (I think). Phil has an aunt and uncle that live there so that's where we stayed. Aunt Coeta, otherwise known as Aunt Diva, had some dinner waiting for us but the kids could hardly wait to get their hands on the birds. Well, that's not entirely true. They were a little skittish of them at first but they did want to hear them talk...and talk they did! I can say with pride that their house is louder than ours with 4 birds and 1 dog.

On Sunday the guys played golf early that morning and the rest of us took a day of rest...Aaaahhh!! I desperately needed that since I'd had a headache for two days...not a fun way to start vaca. Later that evening we visited some friends of Gary and Nancy's for dinner. They had a pool and large basement that was filled with pool, pinball, air hockey, a slot machine and TV. That's where Phil and I and the kids spent the whole evening! We've decided we REALLY need a basement like that!! Ha!!

I love that they have a noisier house than you....it's hard to imagine, so I'll take your word for it.

I like new layout too!!!
