Pure Michigan.

We drove up north for a long weekend in Michigan to visit my parents…

Even though we’re still firmly in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still managed to get out to do a surprising amount of stuff…

We sampled some terrific beers that my parents gathered on their travels like New Belgium’s Atomic Pumpkin. We went out to VerHage Fruit Farm and Cider Mill for donuts and fresh apple cider. We had lunch at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe and Presidential Brewing and COVID Carryout dinner from Four Rose’s in Plainwell. We also got Biggby Coffees and Sweetwater’s Donuts. And most importantly, we got to hang out with my parents because it’s been way too long since we’ve seen them. It was a great weekend. We hope the powers that be can curtail the pandemic soon and we can get up to Michigan more often next year. 😀🗺️⬆️❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

Five years ago, we went up north to visit my parents in Michigan…

Milan made the trip with us, and he just loved my exploring parent’s backyard…

And a couple that didn’t make it to Instagram…

This one was in my Timehop too…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. 😀🐾❤️

Pure Michigan.

We drove up to Michigan to get together with my whole family for a long weekend…

We stayed in the same lake house in South Haven we stayed in two summers ago

We had a really good time. It was great to see everyone and celebrate birthdays. We learned all about My Little Ponies, dun-duns and the little song to tune a ukulele. After the best way to use Google translate, we learned about happy Japanese field mice and beers from Japan.

And we got some awesome new artwork for our refrigerator…

Like I said, it was a very fun trip. Thanks, mom & dad for making this terrific trip possible and getting everyone together. 😀❤️🏖️

I also was tinkering with some timelapse videos that I posted to my Instagram.

#TBT Pause for paws.

Three years ago, we drove up to Michigan to visit my parents and Milan came with us…

Milan loved my parent’s backyard…

He would have loved our backyard so much. And he would have loved going on walks through Parker Woods. I miss the bud dog so much every day. 😀🐾❤

Meanwhile in Michigan…

Tonight, my parents went to see #11 Western Michigan take on Colorado College at Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo. We tuned in to watch the game on CBS Sports. While we were watching, we kept an eye out for my parents. I thought I recognized the white stripes on my dad’s jacket in the crowd…

And then coming back from a commercial, there were my parents…

It was pretty neat to see my mom & dad on TV. And it was a really good hockey game too. Western defeated Colorado College 3-2 in overtime! 😀📺🏒❤️

It’s all true.
