In my last post, I shared a little about my week at Glorieta, New Mexico. A little less than 12 hours after I got home from New Mexico, I was back on the road again – this time with the whole family as we headed north to Indiana and Michigan.
Our first stop was West Lafayette, Indiana to visit Tim’s family. We stayed with my father-in-law and spent 3 days visiting with him, my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and two nephews. While there, we got to watch both of my nephews play baseball.
After a few days in Indiana, we headed even farther north to Michigan to visit with friends we haven’t seen since moving last year. We spent the first few days with the Taplin family.
We had a campfire and roasted marshmallows Wednesday night. Most of the kids relaxed by the campfire on the swing.
We also spent a few nights at Lake of the Woods in Decatur at my parents’ camper. The kids were really looking forward to swimming while we were there – Tim and I decided to pass on that since it felt like the lake had just thawed!
Friday night, Rebecca spent the evening at church at the annual Faith Girls’ Party. She was really excited that they were able to plan the party for the weekend we were visiting. The theme this year was Red Carpet.
Of course we had to eat at some of our old favorite restaurants during our visit. We made it to Mancinos, Chinn Chinn, and Culvers.
Sunday morning (our last day in Michigan) we decided we needed a picture with the Cobb and Taplin kids. We decided to line them up youngest to oldest, Missionary Kids style!
Of course, we had lots of fun visiting with our old friends. As usual, I didn’t take nearly enough pictures while we were there! Early Monday morning we loaded up the van and headed south, making a quick stop in Camby, Indiana to meet the newest member of the Lawyer household – who is absolutely adorable, by the way. After a much too quick visit, it was back in the van for another 11 hours of travel.
