MI blueberry picking

Growing up we picked blueberries every summer in Port Sheldon. This year we continued the tradition with Molly!

She was timid at first - didn't want to walk in the tall-ish wet grass or get dirty (she can be rather prissy). But she got really into it by the end, running up and down the rows, picking blueberries and putting them in her own bucket!

She won't eat the blueberries we get here in Texas (they're grainy and not very sweet - not trying to COMPLAIN or anything) but she devoured them while we were in Michigan. No comparison!

Here are the M&Ms:

And the whole sibling crew!

Jenn and Will's wedding

flashback to memorial day weekend because I'm just now loading the pictures on my computer - JC and I were honored to be a part of some college best friends' wedding! Congrats Jenn and Will McEwen!

back from our trip!

We just got back from a wonderful 10-day trip! First, Chris Nilan (JC's best friend) got married to beautiful bride Julie in St. Louis - it was a blast and we loved seeing college friends!
See some of their awesome pictures here:

Next, we went flew straight to Michigan where we stayed with my entire family in a cottage on Lake Michigan. We had both sets of my grandparents, plus Aunt Katie and cousin Soosha with my entire immediate family. It was a wonderful and memorable trip! So relaxing and fun playing games, reading, going to the beach, beach volleyball & tennis, roasting s'mores over the fire, and of course my dad's wonderful cooking every night. More pictures to come, but here are two I got on my camera.

When Molly gets around little kids she sometimes gets in hugging mode, where she continually tries to give them some love. Here she is with her sweet friend Lainey at the mall play area.

Lainey was a good sport! :)
