Out With The "Lion"(Winter) & In With the "Lamb" (Spring)!!

Hello Luvs,
Wow...I cannot believe that Spring is here so early this year in Michigan! We usually still see Snow at this time of year and can even "squeak" out one more "snow day" sometimes! But it seems that this year we have gotten lucky and the warmer, nice weather is already upon us! We took advantage of a beautiful Sunday in March, while we had our youngest/older daughter,Amy with us and her boyfriend, Grant!
  We first set out for church per our usual on Sunday mornings..but Amy happened to look at her phone in the car on our way there and they had a "NOTICE:" posted up on the website stating that there was "a power failure and there will be no church services for the rest of the day!".. So we put ourselves into high gear for our usual brunch outing on Sundays and headed towards Ann Arbor, Michigan.
  We went to our favorite place, the usual spot with the same nice people that we "visit" every Sunday! We just feel like "family" there and they treat us as such too! We were seated outdoors because it was such a gorgeous day outside! Grant had the cinnamon raisin French toast and Craig also had that. While Amy had the fruit, muffin and frozen yogurt "specialty of the house" and I had what's called a "meat/egg bowl" but I had it without the "bread bowl" and with toast instead! It was yummy sour dough toast and then scrambled eggs with:sausage, bacon, ham and cheese all mixed in!! YUMMY!!
  After we were done eating and seeing all of our friends that we see weekly, there; we set out for a nice walk on that beautiful, sunny day! It was about 78 degrees outside too, which was just perfect for a nice walk. I have a bit of a hard time walking long distances, so I have Craig's hand and my cane for support and we can sit down along the way when I need to do so. We headed out towards campus and to the "diag", it's called. It's a big spot of grass and sidewalk where people sit and soak up the sunshine and great weather. Sometimes people put on a show and this day we were so lucky to find some young adults "tightrope walking" between two trees on the "Diag"! It was amazing fun to watch them!
   We headed towards the shops and then to Nickel's arcade and then to the Antique shop inside there called the "Arcadian". You can find my "review" of the little antique shop on Yelp.com! Just look for my name on Yelp.com and you'll find my reviews and then...well...I think I even have a link here on my blog to my Yelp.com pages! So check it out if you have a chance! I've done several reviews, up into the hundreds, I'm sure! I even got "review of the day" in February, when I wrote a great review about the "Coffee Bean" in Plymouth, Michigan; a little ecclectic coffee shop in the heart of town!
   So we did up the town of Ann Arbor and then Grantwent home and Amy came home to finish up some homework.But we had another wonderful day together as a family and with Amy's boyfriend,Grant. We really enjoy him coming with us and having him around, he's a joy and exube's a lot of energy! Here are some pictures of our wonderful day together!

Amy and her BFF Ann Katherine...now, today 2012
Hello Luvs...
Wow...my baby girl is all grown up!! I cannot believe that as I sit here right now on this Friday afternoon in March of 2012, my youngest daughter is in the Dominican Republic!! She is vacationing there and visiting her BFF, Ann Katherine, from elementary school! They've been through all of the important life changes together! They've been together through thick and thin and all during those awkward middle school years and on to high school!

  I have many pictures of them doing school projects during their sleepovers at our house and hugging each other like all school girls do when they are giddy and excited! They went to proms and Homecoming dances together with other people and took some very "cool" pictures. One picture I remember especially, was when they both went with one boy and his name escapes me right now...but they had put him in the middle and they both did that "Charlie's Angels'" pose with the "gun fingers" and they were on either side of him!! It was a precious picture! They are still giddy and fun to  this day! They say "aaaaaaaaaarrrghhhhhhhhhh" back and forth when they get excited! They were counting down the days to Amy's visit on Facebook by posting old photo's of themselves from the "old days"!! LOL....these are a few of the more recent pictures and possibly some older ones if I can locate them. I've even put a few of the pictures I've already received from Amy since she's left for her trip on Wednesday, March 7, 2012! Have the time of your life my sweet Pea!!! Love, Suzanne/ Mom*

 AND...... She had a wonderful time on her trip! She came home with some fun souvenirs for us and herself! She got a great light tan and had the time of her life!  She enjoyed herself and A.K. was very gracious to have her in her home there and Morinno was very kind to drive them /her around too! They had a great time at the resort and then back to AK's house and to "Colonial Village" where they have a "Western - like" town full of souvenirs and targeted for the visitor to the area! LOL...So enjoy these pictures as they are the ones I got straight from Amy and I got to hear all the great stories too! Hey..maybe someday I'll get to go there to see a real resort!! LOL....ha ha... Enjoy!!!!!!!
