Weekend Update

The classic arm shot -- driving to Ann Arbor last Friday
So, 187 miles later, we are back in Columbus. It was a fun trip to Ann Arbor!! Adam and I toured Pioneer high school where he went to in Ann Arbor. We also visited the rink, where he joined the USA Hockey National Team Development Program. We enjoyed a nice Mediterranean meal on the patio at Mediterrano. Then, Adam surprised me with a reservation at the Oasis Hot Tub Gardens. Who knew these hot tub rentals excited?!? We had the "Manitou" which was so peaceful and relaxing. Day two was good too, but not as many stops. Adam golfed at Barton Hill Country Club designed by Donald J. Ross with Mark Smith and I did a bit of shopping at the Ann Arbor mall. In the afternoon, we spent time with Adam's first billet family, Jim and Julie and ate dinner with Mark from his 2nd billet family while his wife Linda was out of town. It was nice to get to know them all! On Sunday, we drove by Mark & Linda's house to visit with the girls. They are so CUTE. Adam hadn't seen them in years and the girls were so young back in 2003 - 2004.

Happiest little girls -- Stephanie & Courtney

We couldn't stay as long as we wanted because of our drive to the Nascar race. Yes, another race! During the drive to the Michigan International Speedway, Adam and I decided we wanted to spend more time with the Smith family so we called and said, we will spend the night! At around 5pm, we were back and Linda made us a fantastic dinner. It was great to catch up with them and the girls. And the final part of our trip was also too short, we spent the day with the girls and before we knew it, it was time to hit the road again. What a wonderful time we had and I thought Michigan was absolutely b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l... Well, there's our trip in a nutshell. It was a great one!!!
