Oh my gosh, so while at home we were some busy bees!   We got there the day before July 4th.  We got up had our coffee on the porch in the back yard and the family started to arrive. 

Image

In case you were wondering. Grandma made it!  It was a bit hot out for her, so she did not hang outside long, but she still showed up and we had some laughs.  We tried to play a game, but no one was good at it… so we stopped and all went swimming instead.

Later in the day Trent said he wanted a fire for the smell.  Now I will tell you right now that it was already 97 degrees out. Image

Here is a pic of him creating that fire.  Notice no one is sitting under the canopy because the heat from the fire got a little out of control.  After dark dad and Trent lit off some wonderful fireworks and we had a good time just chillen in the backyard.  The next day, the power went out in the whole neighborhood.  It happened at 4:30am and this was the day that mom and I had to do some cooking for their party the next day.  I prayed that God just let us have power until the party was over.  We had power and no one else in the neighborhood did!  God does do miracles people!  It was simply amazing. 

So the next day we go to my cousins house for the party. Image

Here is a pic of everyone in my family waiting for people to show up.  We sat in the shade under the tree because believe it or not, it was cooler there than in the tent. Hahaha!  After a while I got bored and started a game of horse with Trent and a couple friends. 

Image

We got creative and started taking pics of us “dunking” .  Needless to say the lowered the hoop for me. Just look at that great form!!

Next day the power went out, for a full 24 hours. So we took to Bob Evans for some food. 

Image

Mom and Dad waitin for the food to come. YUMMM. Pancakes from Bob’s are delish! MMm MM MM.  Later in the day we visited my other grandma and went to my favorite place Ruggero’s. I go there for a chicken salad and the bread.  Image

Yumm that bread is delish!  After we ate, we went back to grandma’s. I finished my laundry and we went to Frankenmuth to go to a music fest that they have their every Sunday night at 7:00pm.  

Image

On the way there, mom and I took a little nap.  I am laying on a pillow and my mom has perfected sleeping in the sitting position. 

Image

We are now awake and enjoying a little Frankie Valley and the four seasons.  It was actually horrible. But we still had a good time.  Because there was no reason so go home and stare at one another in the dark, we decided to grab a beer and the Frankenmuth Brewery. 

Image

Dad is telling a story and Mom is laughing hysterically.  Kind of how the whole trip was.  Just a good time all around. 

We have reached our final day and I spent it in the pool, after I helped my mom clean out her closet and dad helped dad disassemble the furniture.  Here our the last pics of me at my home. 

Image

Just look at our faces.. filled with joy and love. HAHAHA. SO funny. 

ImageHere is the real pic. Much better.

Just hanging around……

ImageThe last pic of me with my mom and dad at the house I grew up in since I was 10 😦  It is just a house but it has helped make me…… (look to the next pic)

ImageHOW FUNNY RIGHT!!!!

That is the trip though.  Nothing to exciting but as you can see, a lot of memories were made once more. Now on to the Florida house… my parents move July 25th!!!

Sooo. My birthday was yesterday but we will talk about that tomorrow. I want to dig right in to what I did on St. Patricks Day. YUMM

So I told you I wanted a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds. Well I got it!!!  Here we go 🙂

So we run some errands first and then decide it is ShAkE time. OO so exciting. We type in McDonalds into the ol Garmin and take off. We start driving a bit and realize we have entered the ghetto, after passing 3 Burger Kings and one Wendy’s. It was a little scary but as you can see from the above pic, we were pretty stoked to be waiting in the drive thru! OO the anticipation, can you just see it on our faces?

OO there it is in all of its glory. It has also dressed up a bit since the last time I have seen it. It got a clear cup, whipped cream, and two cherries! OOOO La La! Fancy!

After we chug… literally chug down out shakes we make our way home and start dinner… because who couldn’t eat after downing 450 calories? Well Trent talked me in to trying this sandwich called a Reuben. For me never have eating one, I knew how to make it somehow?! I seriously have no clue how I knew what was on the sandwich and how to make it. While I was making the sandwich Trent was busy on our homemade Mojito’s!
There he is shaking things up for us! These Mojito’s were honestly some of the best drinks I have had in a long time. They tasted so fresh and so summery.. OO I just loved it. Here is the final product!

SO this was my beautiful St. Patricks day. It was delish and I had such a fun day!!!

YummNO!


This whole weekend was absolutely beautiful!  Yesterday, all the housework was done so we decided to go on a fall color tour drive.  Let me just say we were not disappointed.  Sooo pretty!  On our way out to the road  we were going to drive on, we passed this little old red barn that was selling pumpkins, cider, pies, fruit, ect.  Such a fun little place on such a fun little drive right? 

 

So we stop by when we are on our way back home and they had some great things.  They had an apple pie that I wanted to purchased but I did not.  They had great fresh steaks that we purchased. YUM.  They also had some fresh tomato basil cheese that we snatched right on up.

On the road home we were talking about the cheese. We had some fresh bread with roasted garlic baked inside and thought it would pair up nicely with the cheese. YUM.  So we run through the door, put away our treats and start right in on the cheese. OH MY GOSH, it was HORRIBLE.  We could barely even eat it.  We decided to maybe melt it on the bread, SICK.  Still sick! It was so bitter and just really no good.  I started adding some salt to it and thank goodness I did because that at least made it edible. 

This leads me to believe that homemade cheese making is really an artform. I give all the people who make cheeses on a round of applause because it obviously is a difficult task.  Hahaha

Have a great Monday!
