My Favorite Cousin's Wedding

A few weekends ago my favorite cousin Staci married the love of her life Ross (not to be confused with her brother Ross). We traveled up to East Lansing for the beautiful ceremony and spent the night eating amazing food, drinking and having a blast with family.

We brought Phil's mom along to watch the girls at the hotel while we went to the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch and a good time was had by all.

First Annual Indiana Camping Trip

You may recall the last several years posts about a fun filled soccer weekend in Indiana. Well, last year Phil decided he’d had too much soccer fun and opted out of the annual tournament. Well, the wives decided that we couldn’t let another year go by without getting together, so we organized the first annual Pokagon State Park camping trip. By all accounts it was a great success.

We were joined by the Camburn’s, the Hunt’s & the Harbert’s. We actually did the whole camping experience, tents, bugs, campfires, raccoons & all. It just so happened that there was a triathlon being held in the part on the Saturday that we were there (can we ever get away from those things? I mean seriously!).

The weather was beautiful so we got to enjoy the amazing beach at the park. We did get rained on Saturday night for a little bit, but the Camburn’s were prepared with a great awning for us to sit under. We had some raccoon friends that really wanted to join our party, so badly that they kept creeping up towards the campfire and even ate some of our food out of the cooler when we weren’t looking! Don’t worry, the boys were armed with flashlights & rocks to protect us…. Side note – no raccoons were harmed in the making of this blog since the boys aim wasn’t always spot on.

The park held a turtle seminar at their nature center and had a few good playgrounds for us to try out. We had so much fun we are already planning our trip for next year!
