Memorial Day Weekend

Our little family traveled all the way up to Michigan for memorial day weekend this year.

Our weekend started out on Thursday evening when we said goodbye to our house-guests, the Wilson's, and left them house sitting for us as we started our long drive. Thursday night we ended up staying overnight in Dayton, Ohio and then continuing our trip Friday morning.

Friday morning Jonah woke up at 5am so we just decided to hit the road. We got into Midland at noon and spent a little while with family while Jonah took a proper nap. That night we went to a Loons Baseball game. We planned to only stay a few innings and leave when Jo got fussy, but the little man LOVED it! I'd say we have a little baseball fan! We ended up staying until the top of the 9th inning. Little shout out to the Dow Diamond: thank you for having such a nice nursing room with a rocking chair and changing table! I was impressed.

Saturday Justin went golfing with his dad, I went shopping with my mum, and Jonah had some quality time with Grandma Lynne. Saturday night Jonah had fun with Grandma Wendy, and Justin and I had our first date night in months: we went to see the Avengers. Awesome movie... It was intense.

Sunday we went to church, and then spent the afternoon with my dad and step-mom's family. We grilled, played Apples to Apples, and Jonah took a nap on Grandpa... Not sure who was more thrilled, Jo or Grandpa.

Monday we had plans to go to the memorial day parade, but Jonah Bear woke up cranky and with a slight fever. So we ended up staying home so he could get proper naps and feel better. That afternoon we visited Grandma Wendy for a little bit, and later that evening we went back to the hubby's family to make s'mores and my dad stopped by to say goodbye.

Tuesday we drove the long 12+ hours home.

Long weekend, but it was so nice to see family. Most of them hadn't see Jonah since he was a newborn.

Now to rest and gear up for the next adventure!
