A Visit to Michigan

A couple of weeks ago we (the girls and I--poor Dave had to work) were lucky enough to go visit Grandma and Papa in Michigan. My little brother is leaving on his mission next week, so we were able to gather the entire family (all siblings plus 4 grandkids) to accompany him through the LDS temple and just spend time together. Highlights of the trip also include a 4th of July roadtrip to Chicago to see my grandparents. We had a *wonderful* time--Emma especially enjoyed time playing with her cousins. Warning: LOTS of pictures below!

Maddie passed out on Grandma's couch.

Chase (18 months) is such a busy kid that we had to document it when he actually took a nap!

Would you like to drive in a van for 5 hours with this crew? Add to this a baby, a dog, a grandpa driving, and a 19-year-old in the front seat who took the wobbly picture. And the second car with 5 more people!

Emma keeps asking if we can go back to Mumma's house and get donuts. Mumma (my grandma) has the best donuts in the world, and spoils us rotten with them!

Emma and her cousin Chase would follow Uncle Tyler around all day long. They will sure miss him when he heads to Brazil!

Emma has heard Taylor Swift's "Love Story" so often on the radio in the car that she can sing along to it. Here, Aunt Brittany is introducing her to the video.
