We're home

My cousin, Robert, Logan and I got home yesterday from Michigan at about 6 p.m. We were worn out after our quick trip, but Robert and I agreed that it was well worth it. We had a wonderful visit with family there.

Logan was incredibly good the entire time. He loved staying in a hotel, dubbing it the "little house." Francis, our 9o-year-old aunt, said he was the best-behaved kid she'd ever been around.

We took a lot of pictures. The ones below are some of my favorites.

Here's a race car at our cousin Barb's house. Barb and her husband, Vic, have several race cars along with a huge truck that can haul six of them at one time.

This is the truck and trailer. It's massive, as you can see.

After a long afternoon, Logan takes a nap on Barb's couch.

And just in case you didn't get enough of this guy last time, here he is again. Doesn't it look like he's smiling? No, he didn't go on the trip with us.

Greetings from Michigan!

It's so nice to have a man handy to tackle all the complicated technical aspects of a hotel stay.

After a long drive, Logan was concerned that our cell phone
didn't have enough juice so he searched for a plug in the hotel room.

We're in Lapeer, Michigan this weekend with Cousin Robert. We drove up to visit our great aunt, Frances, and cousins Barb and Bob. We left early this morning and got here around dinner time. Tomorrow, we have a big day planned at Barb's house where Logan will get to see some race cars and go fishing.

New family member

This is Buddy, also known as The Bud Bird. As you can probably tell from the photo, we don't have any immediate plans to enroll him in a beauty contest. For the past several years, he's been a hard-core feather plucker and we're going to try and rehabilitate him with lots of attention. He also likes to deliver an occasional bite, so we hope to fix that little inconvenience, too.
