Michigan! May 2013

Last month we headed out to the great midwest so Delta could meet all the family she has heard so much about ... We could only go for a few days, but we had a great trip!

I love spending time out there. I love the trees and the winding roads and the lake. I love that Lucas has a million memories and tells me the best stories (my favorite: finding dead frogs in the backyard swimming pool then leaving them on a [mean] neighbor lady's porch ... those Kane boys kids were sure a handful).

I love spending time at Grandma Kane's house. She's gone now, but we had the privilege of staying there on this trip. The house is just as she left it, and completely full of memories. We spent some time looking through photo albums and learning all about Luke's ancestors. We even found a prayer book that belonged to his great, great (?) grandpa who came to America from Austria. Luckily, my amazing SIL served her mission in Germany and translated some super old handwritten notes. (thanks Paulette!)

Here are a few pictures from the trip:

1)Delta on Grandma Kane's back deck
2)Grandma's backyard
3)Uncle Coco is a creeper
4)Grandma Hassler meets Delta
5)Luke & Delta on the front porch
7)random Indiana barn that I fell in love with

We miss it already, can't wait to go back!

Such great pictures. It looks like a fun trip. Just don't get any wild ideas about moving there...Hal would be heartbroken:)
