10 on Tuesday

Michigan Style

Ten Things I am enjoying in Michigan this week.....

10. Staying with my aunt and uncle....so hospitable!

9. My children sleeping in til after 8, oh my!

8. Taking in a Lansing Lugnuts game last night, they won!

7. Taking a FIVE generation picture with my children, my father, my grandfather and great-grandmother!

6. Checking out the cemetary where my uncle is buried and #2's namesake!

5. Driving by the house I came home to when I was born!

4. Rain WITHOUT humidity!

3. Playing in basements!

2. Looking thru old pictures with my grandmother!

1. Visitng with my extended family!

We are having a wonderful trip. The children are behaving, the weather is cooperating and everyone is in good health and spirits. We have spent a lot of time in my grandparents' basement which #2 thinks is an attic! The baseball game was fun last night and then we did a nighttime tour of Michigan State University........Mr. Brick is looking forward to a trip to Ann Arbor today to see the Big House!

Happy Tuesday~

So glad you are having a great time! I absolutely love basements, I wish we had them here. A 5 generation picture is amazing. My family has never gone beyond 4.

I always wanted a basement after visiting relatives in New Jersey. So cool. The Lugnuts, huh? Interesting name even if it is car making country!!

I went on an Outward Bound trip with a woman that worked for the Lugnuts every summer to earn extra money to take cool trips with (like the Outward Bound river trip we did in Utah/Colorado). At age 50-something she just graduated from Northern Michigan Univ. Go Charlotte!!!!! Glad y'all are having fun. I've never been to Michigan. We'll be Texas residents again as of Saturday night!!! (BTW, our TN house has a basement. LOL, we ended up selling it to an Aggie)

I'm so glad you are having a good time. Did you know I was born in Ohio? I lived there until I turned 9 and we moved to Texas. My parents graduated from Ohio State so I've been brainwashed to NOT like U. of Michigan. Funny!

I so wish I was there with you but I think we still had more fun in TX;-) At least that's what I choose to believe! hehe

So glad your trip is going well. It is so hot here ... I was whining about rain the past couple of months, but I knew the heat would come once the rain stopped. Take lots of pictures. Such special family memories for the kids.

I sure miss our KS basement!!! I feel a little vulnerable when they make a tornado watch/warning! :-O

Sounds like lots of fun!!!
