Week in Review

I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth!

I was on a motorcycle ride with my cousin, Gwen, and her husband through Northern Michigan.

We stopped at several places along the way for a drink and something to eat.

The kids have been enjoying outdoor activities.

The river is right in Gwen's backyard so Zack snapped a picture of the geese as they were swimming by.

We've been to lunch at an old theater.


Browsed through shops.

And bought a few things at garage sales and antique stores.

Weather has been great since we arrived and I am thoroughly enjoying the beauty that surrounds us.

Tomorrow we are taking a road trip to North Carolina to visit family and friends. My aunt will accompany us on this trip.

We'll be away for about a week.

Sending many good wishes and blessings your way, Tammy

WOw - what a week! Bet the cycle ride was amazing! And the scenery? Beautiful ;-D

Melissa said...

LOL! Never in a million years would I picture you on the back of a bike. That trip sounded absolutely amazing. And where was Gwen? By the way, she looks great! Sounds like you've been getting in a few of your favorite activities along the way. I've been window shopping a bit and plan on checking out some boutique shops in Corning tomorrow as soon as I fix my tailight on the car. Not working and neither is the blinker. The rental place is on the way, so hopefully its just the matter of changing the bulb. Enjoy your trip to North Carolina:)

Hi Tammy. Looks like your having a great time. North Carolina sounds great to me. I so enjoyed our visit in Geneva, wished it had been longer. I have been crocheting with the yarn I bought. I didn't have any trouble with it tangling up.I will be heading to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin this week-end. I will keep in touch. Enjoy. Susan

HA! Melissa took the words right out of my mouth. Never in a million years did I ever think I would ever see you on the back of a motorcycle. HA! You look like you are having such a wonderful time. Good for you. Omar has talked about getting a motorcycle. He keeps trying to tell me that I would love being on it with him. I have my doubts, but after seeing you there, I think I might be able to do it!
Your lunches and shopping trips look like so much fun. If you make it back to the shop with the sweater, get it for me, and I will pay you in NY! HA! It is to die for.
The boys look like they are having a ball, and the pictures of all the flowers are amazing. I know you are enjoying every moment of it!
Is Gwen going to North Carolina with you? Have a wonderful time there. Any chance you will get to see Lisa? I hope so. Give Gwen and your aunts my best, and I will talk with you very soon!!

Love ya,
Renee

Hi Tammy:

This is my first time and it so refreshing to be among all your other family and friends. I do myself a grave injustice by not reading your blog here at home. I had no idea I was missing out on such wonderful music. Kenny G and Diana Krall no less! What a blessing. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend and please know that I love you with all my heart and I look forward to talking with you tonight. Tell your aunt Hello for me as well as Gwen. I wish I could be there again with you in Michigan. In fact, the place you ate at looks very familiar. Enjoy your vacation!

Blessings!
Angela
