Over Labor Day weekend, I traveled to Michigan with Ms. Stephanie and her family. We flew in an airplane all the way to Detroit to spend time with Ms. Stephanie’s mom and dad, and her brother and sister.
First, we stayed with Ms. Stephanie’s sister and brother-in-law near Ann Abor, where Ms. Stephanie went to college. It was so cool to see where she went to school and ate food, but she said it sure does look different than when she was there! While were in Ann Arbor, we explored the campus, visited the Farmers Market, and ate really amazing food from Zingerman’s Deli, one of the best places to eat great food.
Then, we drove to Flint, where her parents and the rest of her family live. We ate lunch at the Flint Farmer’s Market and got pedicures! Ramya really loved getting her toenails painted! The next day, we had a great big picnic and invited all of Ms. Stephanie’s family over. It was so much fun! I played with Ramya and all her cousins the whole day long. At night, we lit a fire in the fire pit, and Ramya and I felll asleep on the hammock.
It was a super short trip, and I wish we could have stayed longer. Unfortunately, my wish came true! We missed our connection in Charlotte, so we spent a few extra hours in a lounge in the airport. It was nice to have a private place to relax! Once we got home, we all fell fast asleep. I had a wonderful time with Ms. Stephanie and Ramya, and I can’t wait for our next journey together.
