Summer 2014 Vacation Recap
We (my wife, son and I) left the house on July 4th and headed out of town. We stopped in Winston-Salem, at my parents' house to spend the 4th. After night swimming with my brothers, sister, nieces and nephew, we went to bed, only to get up at the crack of dawn to head to Michigan. The trip to Michigan served two purposes, my wife grew up in Michigan so she wanted to take my son and I around her old haunts and we also were invited to my very good friend, and fellow blogger, Dustin's wedding. As a wedding gift to Dustin and his wife, I bought them Tigers tickets, but since the wedding was days away, his wife wasn't able to make it to the game. Luckily, Dustin's 10-year old brother, Deacon, was visiting from Germany and was able to take her place. I'm glad Deacon was able to go, since he had never been to a MLB game before.
I had taken a photo of Dustin and Deacon together at his first game with my digital camera, but, unfortunately, later on along our way, my camera disappeared. I'm so sorry, Dustin and Deacon, I really wanted to print out that picture for you guys.
bbcexchange.com so we could play pack wars. I'm not going to go into the rules of pack wars, but the main principals in the game were (from left) Andrew's Dad, his brother Caleb, my son Chris and Andrew. Also, you can see my wife supervising.
We were able to walk around the city, and get into the concourse area of AutoZone Park (home of the Redbirds). You can see Chris above posing for a pic.
My wife and I decided that Memphis was definitely going to be one of those cities on our list of vacation destinations in the future. What an awesome place.
So, that was our trip. I met two more bloggers in person and both made me feel so welcome. I was glad I was able to make the trip to be able to spend time with both of them, and meet their respective families. It really is nice to see folks who welcome people into their lives and are willing to spend time together. I know Chris and Caleb will be writing letters back and forth to one another. They were off and running, playing together, not 5 minutes after we got to Andrew's house.
I did 90% of the driving, and we put some miles on my Cobalt. I'm so glad it made it through the trip. I hope to be able to do it again soon. I'm already trying to figure out what vacation 2015 will entail.
