Our Weekend in Michigan.

Thursday, Nick and I flew to Michigan for a very eventful weekend! While waiting at the Orlando airport Nick spotted Lee Corso at our terminal. He was on the same flight as us to Detroit. He was going to Ann Arbor for College Game Day at Michigan - GO BLUE!  Once we landed, Nick got to say hi and I snapped a picture of them together. It was pretty cool for Nick to get to meet him!
 Thursday evening was spent with his parents, catching up with each other, playing euchre and munching on pizza. Friday morning was nice and relaxing too; we just lounged around the house until the afternoon and then Nick and I went for a drive through town and out into the country.
I seriously am in awe when we drive around Michigan. It is so beautiful in every way. I can't wait until views like this are in my backyard.
 When we got back to the house I spotted a cute little humming bird eating off of the feeder and decided to try to snap a few pictures of him. I actually got some decent ones (thanks to my camera’s major zoom function)!
Later that afternoon, we all got ready and headed to Eaton Rapids for my nephews football game. He is a senior in high school this year and we were very excited to go to one of his games and cheer on the Mason Bulldogs!
It turned out to be a great game (Mason won!) and the weather was just beautiful!
The next afternoon Nick, his parents and I went to our friend Troy’s wedding celebration. He had a small destination wedding earlier this year and had this “reception” to celebrate with more friends and family.

It was so nice to catch up with all of our friends that we hadn’t seen since Memorial Weekend and it also made for a good excuse to get Barb out of the house; you see, Saturday was a big birthday for her and we all planned to try our best to make it as special as possible! So while we were out, Nick’s sisters, brother in laws, niece and nephews worked on decorating the house for what was planned to be a fun surprise birthday party!
