We went to Michigan!

Don't worry...I didn't ditch all of you, I just took a little vacation. My parents rented a house in South Haven, MI and we joined them for the week along with Gregory, Katie, and Andrew. Grandma and Grandpa Mayer and Auntie Emily even made a quit visit too. I included LOTS of pictures in this post. We had so much fun this week. At first, Lily wasn't too sure of the sand or the water, but by the end she LOVED them both. Also, her two bottom teeth have finally poked through. Yeah, hopefully no more restless night for her. She also learned how to go from the crawling position back to sitting up. She's quite proud of herself.

Enjoying the lake with Dad. She thought it was so cool that she could stand on the bottom.
A bathing beauty!
Hanging out with Nana.
They had a totally awesome park right by the beach. Lily wasn't quite old enough yet, but still enjoyed the slide and swings!
She's laughing so hard right here!

Lily survived her first 20 mile bike ride. Most babies would fall asleep for hours in this thing, but not our Lily Grace. She took maybe a 15 minute cat nap.

Tyler acting like he was milking one of the cows on the trail. We rode the Kal-Haven trail. It runs from South Haven all the way to Kalamazoo (where I was born).

This was Lily's new favorite toy. In this picture she is SCREAMING on the top of her lungs.
She would close the shutters and then open them to see......
GRANDPA!!!!! She must have played this game 100 times.
Chillin with Uncle AJ.
Hanging out at the pool with Dad.
We had a very relaxing week enjoying fine brewdogs! I was even able to finish a book, which never happens. I read Certain Girls, by Jennifer Weiner. I love her, but this one wasn't my favorite. If you have a baby or are pregnany I totally recommend Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner. It's one of her best books! Totally girly and a great beach read.
Back to the grind this week. Tyler begins 2-a-days for football and my "boss" told me he wanted me to start working. I am nannying 2 days and we are leaving Friday for Megan's wedding (Tyler's cousin)!!!! So there won't be too much down time.

8908Love all the pictures, guys! Lily has grown up right before our eyes! I can see Grandpa Mayer is still a "kid at heart". Glad you had such a great "family vacation" in Michigan. Tyler, Allison and Lily Grace have a wonderful and safe trip to Cleveland-can't wait to see you this weekend!!
Love and safe travels,
Aunt Kathy (Uncle Mike, Megan and Matt too)

For all of you who don't know, Lily's swimming nickname is of course the Lily pad. It was pretty fun getting to hang out with Lily allll week. I am sure she misses not seeing me all day every day, like I do with her.
