July 23, I left home in Missouri to spend several weeks with my sisters and brother in Michigan. I arrived at Mae (sister)'s house the morning of July 24. Mae and Phillip (her husband) moved my 5th wheel out to my brother's (Dale) place on July 25 because he has a set up where I could have full hook ups for the 5th wheel.
Since then, I have been on a whirl wind of activity. I have attended my sister in law's family reunion, had a luncheon with her sisters, attended 2 concerts (where I got in free), attended my ex son in law's brother's birthday party, gone to 2 casinos, been thrift store shopping, yard sales, walked an outlet mall, and visited a lighthouse in Indiana. Besides visiting sisters and grandchildren. WHEW!!!!!!!!!
Also visited my husband's sister and brother and my 93 year old aunt (my dad's sister). I attended TOPS meetings each week as a visitor.
Last Wednesday (Sept. 5), I left Michigan to spend 4 days in Michigan City, Indiana with my sister, brother, cousin, and their spouses. This is where we spent 2 hours one day walking the outlet mall. Today, we walked for another 2 hours at the lighthouse park. I walked 3/4 mile out to the lighthouse and 3/4 mile back. We got to pass through a wedding party on the way. This was after we spent part of the afternoon tromping through thrift stores and stopping at a couple of yard sales.
Tomorrow, I will be heading home. this has been a whirlwind wonderful trip. Next year, we hope to visit the Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan's upper peninsula.
OOPs-forgot we also went to Shipshewana, Indiana and a big bulk food store.
This has been a happy sad visit. Happy to see everyone, sad it has ended, happy to be going home and see my kids and grands again.
I will probably think of more to add later as I relive my memories..
