7+ hours on the road, a Bass Pro shop, and Ikea!

So far our trip to Michigan has been a busy bee kind of fun. We've been having a great time! Run down of our trip so far:
  • Long drive
    • Calvin was a trooper. Thanks to a mild case of the flu he slept over 1/2 the drive. Perfect timing, right?!? :-)
  • First night here we went to Bass Pro shop!!! And a big mall.
    • Calvin got a new "hunting hat" that he'd been begging for. It's perfect. Camo Bass Pro hat! He loves it!
  • First full day here we went to a Detroit Tigers game (they won!) followed by... Chris's favorite place to eat: Pizza Papalis. It was yumm-o! :-)
  • Today Calvin and I took on the Detroit metro area.
    • I learned the ways of the roads and we ended up at... one of my FAVORITE places to shop: Ikea!!!
      • It was fantastic! I got lots of great finds including throw pillows for our new couches that will arrive sometime between July and September.
  • Who knows what tomorrow will bring. I'm sure we will find more fun things to do! Later this week we are going to the Detroit zoo and taking a weekend excursion to a Great Lake beach somewhere. I'm definitely looking forward to it. :-)
Not really sure when we'll be home... sometime next week. It's nice to get away for a few days. Even though Calvin is having a good time, he is already home sick. He misses his buddy Kole tons and all the fun they have hunting imaginary animals/bad guys in our backyards.
