No, I didn't fall off Earth!

Ok, so where have I been? I know it's been almost literally 3 months (to the day) since I last posted, right?! So much has happened...

  • My dad turned 62
  • Mother's day came and went
  • My youngest went to story hour at his (upcoming) new school and went on his first school bus ride
  • My sister came home from San Diego in preparation for her wedding
  • My oldest performed in his last school orchestra concert for the year
  • My sister's fiancee came home from San Diego (he's in the Navy and couldn't get an earlier leave)
  • Amber and Nick had their bachelor/bachelorette parties - Tiger's game/hang out at the maid of honor's then everyone got together to bar hop
  • We had the rehearsal and dinner afterward at Nick's mom's house - for the record DeLuca's Pizza in East Lansing is the most AMAZING pizza I've EVER had!!!
  • Amber and Nick got married and we partied the night away - it was super fun and everyone looked awesome
  • Memorial Day came and went
  • My oldest friend (since 2nd grade) had her birthday party - we all went to see the Sex and the City movie - it was good.
  • The Wings won the Stanley Cup!!!
  • My youngest met with one of the kindergarten teachers and had a little pre-school testing - I don't know how things went but I assume he's a smart kid.
  • The school year ended
  • Andrew, Sandie (my oldest friend), and I went to the parade for the Red Wings
  • The whole family went to a Tiger's game (thanks Aunt Jamie-girl for hookin' us up with your neighbor and his season tix!!!) - the Stanley Cup made an appearance there!!!
  • A nasty storm happened and we were without power for 5 days - that sucked!
  • Father's day came and went
  • The first day of summer arrived
  • My dad's nephew got married - Hawaiian casual theme - I've never been to any wedding like it before...
  • All of us (including my parents and brother) except Jason went downtown to the fireworks for the International Freedom Festival
  • Independence day came and went
And that about sums it up. In the short and sweet version. I suppose I should post some photos from some of the more significant things that went on during my absence. So here ya go....

Andrew was given free use of the mic for a bit and sang along to "Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones and "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand. It was so cute.
