Our Trip to Michigan

In October, we took a small trip up to my stomping grounds in Michigan with the plane.  It was a blast to see old friends and visit places I hadn't been to for 20+ years.  A lot has changed in Battle Creek and driving down the street, I would spark a memory that I had forgotten.  It was a trip that I really needed just to just get away.

Once we hopped off the plane, got our rental car, ate some food, and checked into the hotel, we made our way to Binder Park Zoo for their annual "ZooBoo".  We were meeting a few people there...8 to be exact!  I can't remember the last time I went to the ZooBoo, but it sure has changed...and sadly, it's changed for the worse.  I was very disappointed in it, but we still had a great time.

This picture does not capture how bright red these trees are
Close to the entrance, a giant ant...KK pretending that its eating his hand

On the trian.  I remember that I used to LOVE sitting in the back of the train because the seat faced backward, so the whole ride you were going backward

My Boys!

There are a TON of peacocks there...KK loved them and so did Mr H
Hanging out with Ori and Addy

THIS...THIS, my friends, is the house I spent 15 years of my life in.  THIS, little, 3 bedroom, 1 bath house is where my 5 younger siblings and parents lived!  SO MANY MEMORIES!
The Bridge we used to walk across after church most Sunday's
A couple of Swans

We went to Goguac Lake and saw this play area, which wasn't there when I lived here.  And of course KK wanted to play!  He would climb to the very top and told us that it was "Preach" time, that he was going to preach to us.  He makes me laugh.
He didn't want to leave
After going down the
It made my hair sooo wild

The leaves on the trees were so vibrant

It was a bit chilly, but after running around, playing, he didn't want his sweater on

Love them!

I love these boys!

On our way home, ET loved the flight and slept most of the way.  He survived his first flight and seemed to really enjoy it
In the summer I would really like to go back up there and go to the World's Longest Breakfast table.  We also have other people we'd like to see that we weren't able to with this trip, so I'm sure we will get back up there sooner rather than later.
