Michigan

We had the privilege of visiting my family in Monroe, Michigan for a few days, and man did they show us a good time! I am so grateful for this bunch. From kayaking on Lake Erie, to a Jazz Festival and Art Fair, to some seriously good eating, we have been blessed beyond measure both physically and spiritually.  We made sure to get some pictures of our trip, and we can’t wait until the next time we are able to visit.

Ransom got to meet lots of family. Aunt Net took him all around my cousin Cheryl’s gorgeous garden, and was a big fan of the black eyed susan’s (one of my personal favorites), and had a very good time hanging out with my cousin Tim. We were also so excited to meet this little guy, Christine’s baby boy, Blake. He is 3 weeks old, and as cute as can be, not to mention has the coolest hair!

We had a great time at the jazz festival. We found a spot under a big tree and set a blanket out to enjoy the music and incredible weather. It was a nice break from the Texas heat, being able to walk outside without breaking a sweat. I think Dane and I were outside about 90% of our time there. We even slept with the windows open at night!

Monroe is known for General Custer, who claimed it as his hometown. This was a statue by the river in downtown Monroe.

We found this cute taggie blanklet at one of the booths at the art fair and I couldn’t pass it up. Ransom loves it! He has had it with him ever since.

On our way home from the festival we walked through the grounds of an old catholic girl’s school. The school is no longer in use but the nuns keep the grounds, and a garden just down the road a bit. This is a mural that was painted on the barn there.

We were sad to leave, but grateful for the time spent in love and laughter with family. Only one stop left before home on our trip!
