This summer we made the trek back to Michigan, the land of my birth.
We started our journey with a series of delays at the SLC airport... which caused us to hang around there for about 5 hours. My friend Kory was kind enough to work his afternoon around our ever-changing flight schedule.
Because our flight was delayed in SLC, we missed our Midway connection. We spent the night sleeping in airport chairs. It was freezing. I am never cold, and it was freezing. Jake was fortunate enough to have his robe.
Our first night we had dinner at my in-laws. My brother in law, Lee, is one of the world's great story tellers.
Wine in the grocery store is a luxury we do not have in Utah.
My brother and his sons came up from Kentucky. The cousins enjoy a game of spoons.
My mom loves to play baseball with her grandchildren.
My brother Matt won big at Chuck E Cheese.
