Visiting Michigan on break!

I cannot believe I will be back at Hope in less than a week. Time flies so quickly. On Thursday our family left to start our trip to Michigan to visit my dad’s side of the family. We first stopped by a suburb of Chicago to visit my mom’s aunts. We only planned on staying an hour or so, but it turned into five hours. My mom’s side of the family is from Italy, so they all love to talk.

Once we left Frankenmuth, we drove to our cousin’s house and played a variety of games. Every night was family game night, and it was a blast! My favorite game played was Balderdash. I want to buy it and bring it back to Hope to play with my friends. While I was at cousin’s house in Manchester, my friend Sarah came and visited with my family. We all played Taboo together, and or course my team won. My stomach hurt by the end of the night from all of the laughter.

After we left my cousin’s house, I drove home with Sarah. The roads were really slippery from the snow, so she drove like 25 mph the whole way back. We ate and chatted for awhile in her room then went to bed. The next day we ate out at the same sushi place that we ate at last year when I visited her. Then my parents came and picked me up from Starbucks. Of course it was snowing on our ride home, so it took longer than expected to arrive.

I really enjoyed my time in Michigan with my family. I am looking forward to heading back up there in less than I week.

Hope your week is wonderful
