Michigan: activities

Since yesterdays post was all about food, I thought I would talk about the fun stuff we did in Michigan. We actually stayed REALLY active, between tennis, bike riding, and of course beach time haha

After breakfast, we would usually head over to the tennis courts with my cousin and her boyfriend

Andrew got a new racket for his birthday, and we have been playing about once a week at home. My aunt and cousin love to play, and it was alot of fun!

We also took a few bike rides.

Andrew is still working on riding by himself, but going on a 28 mile bike ride was tough pulling him behind me.

He loved it, and started getting the whole mechanics of balancing and pedaling.

We were like a biker gang heading to the cherry hut haha

Andrew would go around the house asking ANYONE to play with him

beach and bike post coming up later….

Question for you:

Would you rather swim, bike, or run? or play tennis?

– I would rather swim, bike, tennis, then run. Actually after our 10 hour drive home, I went to the pool and swam 2000 yards! It felt amazing! especially after being in the car so long

What is your favorite board/card game?

-I love to play nerts! Has anyone else played that before?
