happy memorial day weekend

aaron and i mozied up to michigan for a long weekend to spend time with aaron's family. it was so nice being there, seeing as how we hadn't been up since justin's wedding last june! we got there wednesday evening and didn't really do much.

thursday aaron and i drove down to lansing, michigan and i spent the day with one of my college roomates, deanne, and aaron went golfing with one of his roomates from college!

then on friday, we headed up to macinac island! we hit up burger king for lunch and then it was off to the island! it was beautiful! the weather couldn't have been better! we took a ferry over to the island and walked around and admired all the tulips, bought fudge, went to see the grand hotel and got some ice cream!


aaron acting like he's seasick and puking off the side of the ferry :)

then on friday we all went to the highland festival! alma, michigan (aaron's hometown) is known as 'scotland USA' and people come to this festival from all over the world! there were numerous bagpipe bands and miss michigan was even there! its neat to see everyone come together to take part in the parade and the other festivies throughout the weekend.


the rest of the weekend was spent lounging around the house and watching movies, playing golf, and eating, eating, and more eating :)

and lastly, may we have a moment of silence for our sweet, sweet emmitt (aaron's childhood dog) he's being put down this week and we're all so sad! he's 14 years old and is very thin and bony and has a real hard time getting around. and with ron and jackie leaving for a month for sabatical, the vet thinks he will go down hill, fast...so this is the best option. we will miss you eeeeeeeeeeeemmeeeeeeeeeeeee


thank you woolseys for hosting 6 kids for a long weekend! we all had a great time!
