Michigan and back in three days. I could have easily spent a week meandering home and visiting towns, quilt shops and antique stores on the way!
Grand Rapids was hopping Tuesday night. We arrived late but still had to wait to get a table at this restaurant. Half price sushi!
Meijers (like a super Target or Walmart) is a must stop for stocking the apartment fridge. This part of Michigan has a large Dutch population.
All too soon, it was time to say good bye. I kept telling myself we were lucky to have him home for the summer, but it's still hard on a mom.
The trip home was much more leisurely and I took the time to meander off the interstate.

I've been a bit of a slacker blogger this summer, but hope to get back on track and catch up with all my blogging friends.
