In the last couple weeks, we’ve done all sorts of cool things. We’ve hung out with lots of people, we’ve played with the chickens, we’ve helped my dad re-shingle the pole barn, we’ve gone kayaking with my aunt and uncle, and we’ve worked on many “projects”, and we almost got smushed by a thunderstorm in the tent.
It was exciting. And scary.
I asked Jared if we were getting sucked up by a tornado.
I think he wanted to laugh at me. But he had the presence of mind not to.
I wimped out slept in the house for the rest of the night.
Here are some pictures of our adventures in Michigan…
|This is one of my mother’s wee chickens. I’ve named her Dilbert. Helloooooooo, Dilbert.|
|This is the trunk of my Granpadre’s car. It’s spectacular. It shows a whole other side of the Buick.|
|One half is shingled! Huzzah!|
|Uncle Bill, Aunt Lyn, and Jared, on the river.|
|Uncle Bill didn’t realize I was papparazzing him until it was too late. Poor fella.|
|Aunt Lyn is a cheery kayaker. She’s a quality lady, that Aunt Lyn. I hope everyone has an Aunt Lyn in their life. And an Uncle Bill. And a Granpadre. They are essential. Essential, I tell you.|
|Meanwhile, Jared just pretends to ignore me. Or, maybe he’s really ignoring me. Jared? Can you hear me? Hello? Sweetie? Pumpkin? Sugar pie? (baaaaaaaaaaaaaaah… I crack myself up)|
|Oh, and then we finished off the river evening with a jaunt on the pontoon boat on the lake. And, they look epic.|
|Finally, a mini project preview. I painted this shutter. More project pictures coming in about two months. I will say this: the couch we’re building is going to be epic.|
Tonight, my immediate family (plus the Granpadre) will be together for the last time until Thanksgiving.
Tomorrow, Jared and I go up to Grace Adventures for two weeks to help kick off the summer program. We’re excited; it’s another one of our homes. We’ll see you on the other side (with more pictures and hopefully faster internet so posts won’t be as infrequent)!
Peace out, homeslices.
