On Wednesday, Dayna and I cooked 3 out of 4 courses of a meal she was preparing for her sister-in-law. We made homemade turkey chili, macaroni and cheese from scratch and chocolate chip heath bar cookies. The night was filled with a lot of laughs, some delicious pizza and a bunch of tom foolery. To my knowledge the food turned out well despite the wine, bourbon and heavy eyeballing of ingredient measurements.

On our way back, Eli got to splash through EVERY puddle in the parking lot. He has the best mom EVER!
At the Senate, I got to meet Jeanie's other two daughters, Evelyn and Amelia (Bedelia). We fooled around a bit and played a little golf too.
Saturday, my Aunt Kate and I practiced for my France trip by eating Frog Legs.

Then I went to Saline to visit my father and supervise my step-mother's graduation party preparation. I finally closed the night with a trip to an old stomping ground, Ricks Cafe in Ann Arbor with Tim and Justin to celebrate Rich's 40th birthday and the loss of my dignity and youth. I must be getting old because I was not carded and the doorman just assumed I was there for the party. Maybe its because I was wearing a seersucker blazer to a college bar, LOL. Ugh, I forgot to take pictures. I'm horrible.
Sunday, I took a road trip to crash the Marthaler Family reunion in Colon, Michigan (the magic capital of the United States). His niece and nephew took us for a ride on the boat, we played cards, I attempted to learn how to play cribbage and experienced what its like to hang with a giant family. It was absolutely lovely.
