Tomorrow morning at 6 am, Hubby & I are embarking on our sorta annual trip to Michigan to visit his parents. However, this trip may be like no other. See back in June, my cousin got engaged and began planning a wedding to be held in just a few short months on Labor Day Weekend! The wedding is being held at a beautiful location between Nashville & Knoxville, TN--Whitestone Country Inn which is about 9 1/2 hours from our home. So...we're leaving tomorrow in time to be at the rehearsal that starts at 5:30 on Friday night. We'll hang around on Saturday, head to the wedding & reception, & then our plans are to hit the road and drive part way to Michigan. The wedding location is about 8 hours from Hubby's parents' house so we would like to get a head start. We'll arrive in Michigan on Sunday at around noon or early afternoon.
This might all sound like a piece of cake, but we had also already made plans to do a little bit of traveling once we get to Michigan. There are just so many things that we can see in Michigan that we hate to just sit around! So our plans also include leaving Monday at noon to head to Niagara Falls (which is 4 hours from their parents' house)...spend Monday night, all day Tuesday, & Wednesday morning enjoying the sights...some shopping for the girls & some golf for the guys. We'll get home on Wednesday afternoon to relax (or simply repack our bags) and then Thursday late morning we're heading out again...this time for a cute little town Up North where there is this golf course that Hubby has been dying to play ever since his dad had the chance to play it a few years ago. We'll spend the night up there...I'll enjoy some more shopping in some adorable little Michigan towns and we'll head home on Friday to relax for the evening and during the day on Saturday. Sunday morning we will head out for the 11 hour drive home....WHEW!!!
3,104 miles, 5 different beds, & countless outfits & meals later...we'll arrive at home!!
ARE WE CRAZY!?!? Yes...but I'm sure it promises to be a road trip full of fun times, lots of memories, & certainly lots of pictures.
