On Wednesday Val and Alan Musch swung by NC on their way to GR from Florida...We are so grateful they drove 12 hours out of their way to visit! It was a much anticipated reunion and [as always] our time together didn't disappoint.

Of our many adventures, the visit to Sonic was one of the most popular-so much so, we went twice. For those of you who are not familiar with the infamous drive-in restaurant...or oh -so-corny??? commercials, you may not have as great of an appreciation or understand the significance...[All I know is the happy hour is great-50% off slushes, sweet tea and soft drinks!-to which we took full advantage]

But, for all of those who live in GR...the closest Sonic is in Indiana....another reason y'all should visit...because NC's Got it!!!

A picture from our hiking/geocaching adventure at Lake Johnson. It was a beautiful day with temperatures in the mid 70's

oh how we value their friendship. how great it was to be reunited with friends once again! we miss you already...

other highlights of the past few days include multiple rounds of "trains" [aka Ticket to Ride], the bean game [Bohnanza], bocce ball, homemade pizza, the Office, wii bowling, Tigers, 80 degree weather and plenty of sunshine....and for some [alan and jim]...endless hours of tanks!

we said goodbye to val & al last night as they started out on their trek home. we were sad to see them leave, but look with much anticipation to the week ahead. 2 more days of work and then we're off to Florida!!! [and on a side note...thanks to Aunt Deb for finding us cheap tickets on JetBlue!] We're overly excited to see my grandparents and enjoy a week away...

and with's time to hit the sack. today was day 1 of 3 in a row at work....and i'm getting old.

So this has nothing to do with your post but: Jim..."you're" not doing so well pitching this season, could you try and step it up a notch?!

We miss you guys! Thanks for hosting us over the past few days, we had a great time and look forward to doing it again soon.
Love you!
