Michigan Mash Up

 We spent the last two week in Michigan on vacation. It was a jammed packed vacation with lots of family time with both sides of the family. Here is a picture mash up of our time there.

I threw my sister a baby shower. A GIRL baby shower. First little lady on my side of the family.

Colin got sick with a high fever. Colin and I stayed put for a day and watched the Olympics all day and night.

I was able to escape from sick baby land and go to Anthropologie for a bit of shopping...alone! It was glorious.

The sickness spread and poor Jack got sick. Unfortunately,  he got the flu the day of the rehearsal for the wedding that he was the ring bearer. He bravely made it through the rehearsal, but spent the day in bed at the hotel, instead of playing at the beach at Lake Michigan.

We ventured out of the hotel to go to dinner with all of Ryan's siblings. It had been 6 years since they had all been together. Our car decided that it wanted to get sick, and we broke down a mile from the restaurant. The kids and I were rescued by Ryan's older brother and a police-expedited tow truck came and towed our car away. Family came to our rescue again and we were able to eat and get an extra vehicle in time for the wedding.

Ryan's oldest nephew, Jaymen, got married at a beautiful old mansion. Ryan was honored to be the best man ( They are only 5 years apart) and Jack was the ring bearer. It was a beautiful wedding and the rain held off for the entire outdoor ceremony. 

Since two parties in a week is not enough, we celebrated Colin's 2nd birthday at my grandparent's house.

Watch out! Spiderman was  on the loose!

The whole Fedell clan. Together for the first time since our 2006 wedding. 

The rest of the time was spent watching hours of Olympics, resting, shopping, a day trip to Kalamazoo and spending time with family...all of which I failed to get pictures of.

It was a great, tiring, fun, exhausting and happy time. I just wish that we didn't live so very far away.

Until next time, Michigan....

It sounds like you had a wonderful trip to Michigan. It's always so nice to get together with the family...especially for a happy wedding :) Poor Colin and Jack...sorry to hear they got sick. But by looking at the speed SpiderMan was moving I'm assuming they felt better after the wedding?! :) You look lovely at Anthro (LOVE the maxi dress on you) and the Tropica Jacquard Dress looks amazing on you Alicia!!
