Michigan-Massachusetts Trip

We spent a few days up in Michigan at Bubbe and Opa's house.

We went to the East Lansing Arts Festival, and we took a break to get ice cream at the MSU Dairy Store. Yum!

Avery loves his Opa!

My parents' neighbors have an awesome trampoline!

We got to visit our friends and see their new house!:

Our hotel in Massachusetts had a great indoor pool. Avery was a bit reluctant at first to go in, but once he came in the pool, he didn't want to get out!

We took our friends' daughter with us to the Holyoke Children's Museum, which was lots of fun. They had so much fun making big bubbles, exploring how leaves blow in the wind, and buying vegetables at the pretend market:

It's hard not to notice the huge size difference between Avery and Parker (who is about 6 months younger than Avery). Parents at the museum tried to figure them out (assuming that they were brother and sister, when told how old they are).

No trip to Massachusetts is complete without a visit to the Yankee Candle Flagship store (where it is always Christmas and snows every 4 minutes -- we love it!) and also to Shelburne Falls, where we visited the Bridge of Flowers and saw the falls:
