We’ll be right back. We’re going to Michigan for Christmas.😀🎄❤️

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.

We spent a wonderful, long weekend in South Haven with my family…

We have so much fun getting together with everyone to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday. I really wish could all get together more often. But it’s so special when we’re all in the same place at the same time. 🙂

I took a bunch of photos over the long weekend. And I even tried a few short videos with my new Polaroid Cube. I took one of the waves in South Haven’s Black River, one of a sunset over Lake Michigan, one of the waves crashing along the shore of Lake Michigan and one of the fun we had at Lake Michigan’s South Beach.

We’re so happy we got to spend it with you and all the family in South Haven. We love you and we hope you had a very wonderful special day! 🙂

Taste of Michigan.

My parents came down from Michigan to visit for the weekend! And they brought down a couple of delicious pizzas from Pizza King that we made for dinner tonight!

YUM! And they brought down an amazing birthday cake from Boonzaijer Bakery with them as well!

Delicious stuff! It’s like having our very our own little Taste of Michigan! YUM! Thanks mom & dad!:)
