July pretty much flew by with all of our travels this summer! We had a great time in Florida with the Pantanos (and a visit from LL and Reed) and a quick transition to Michigan.
The drive went really well and is actually a lot better than the drive from Missouri. Maggie was absolutely amazing and the best little traveler ever. Having Megan and Beckie along made the drive so quick and easy (with a wonderful soundtrack!)
We spent the first part of our trip in Spring Lake enjoying the pool, company and Coast Guard Fest. Though we ran into some trouble with a crazy waiter at the Kirby, it was an overall success. Maggie enjoyed swimming in Nana and Grandpas pool and Erin and I made the largest, most delicious pavlova ever! The weather was amazing and I have decided we need a backyard set-up like Rob's parents-fires on a Michigan summer night=the best thing ever!
We stayed in Lansing the second part of our trip and had a great time with my Mom and my brother's family. We got to meet my new niece Laila and Maggie had a really fun time with her cousin Caddie. They got along really well and only fought over the baby dolls a few times! I took Maggie to SBS for some Spartan gear and and got her an ice cream at the MSU dairy store.
It was a busy 3 weeks but totally worth it. I am happy to be home again and looking forward to the fun times to come with the Zuzulocks just down the street. Who would have thought we would be so close again after all these years??
Finally-Congrats to Young and Hanna who were married this afternoon! We can't wait to see the pictures!!
