There really is nothing like Michigan in the summer. (Except maybe Michigan in October, which I’m already mourning.) Yesterday I finished my packing and errands as fast as I could so I could enjoy my penultimate day of Pure Michigan.
For my Pure Michigan night, I wanted to eat outside, drink beer, play softball (real baseball, not Wii baseball, much to Preston’s disappointment), and eat s’mores.
For dinner, it was grill time again — this time it was ribs, sweet potatoes, broccoli, biscuits, and beer.
After drinking my fair share of Leinenkugel, I rounded up the men (Preston and Eric) for sporting time.
Preston needed a break from that Wii so we made him work.
And I needed to act like a serious athlete for a little while…
I may not look very athletic, but I’ve played softball since I was eight years old and I’m pretty damn good — even out of practice, I was still catching pop-ups with my a beer in hand. For more batting practice, we headed to the batting cages, and then just lay in the hammock for a little while. Deer wandered into the yard and an owl perched in a tree and the sun was going down. I’m so glad I got to bring Eric here for a few days of this. Despite it all being so nice and relaxing, we finally dragged ourselves out of the hammock to make s’mores.
Today I’m up and at it! On the agenda: eyebrow wax, renewing my driver’s license, packing my books, and then getting ready for my party tonight! I need to make a playlist and marvel as my mom gets cake boss.
I think it’s going to be a pretty good day. Catch you later!
