Last week, my family and I spent a week in Michigan visiting our family. Ever since we moved to Las Vegas, our number one destination has been Michigan. We have been trying to go back twice a year so we can spend time with both sides of our family and share Jack with everyone. I always thought that Kevin and I were so lucky because our family is all in the same place, but ever since we moved away, I find it to be difficult to have all our family in one place. We get one week to squeeze in a visit with everyone and it can get a little overwhelming at times, especially with a baby. That’s why this trip was our last Michigan trip for a while. We decided we want to take some time to visit some other places this next year and hopefully we will have lots of visitors come out our way.

|The penguin exhibit at the zoo was the best! It put a huge smile on my little guy’s face.|
Shop Jack’s wardrobe. A lot is on sale right now!

I'm so glad the flights worked out well for you! Looks like you guys had a great time!
That's so great you got to go out and visit family! We live in the same state as most of our (close) family and holidays are so hard! Everyone wants you to be at everything and it's hard, but we've learned to say no because we want to actually enjoy our time without feeling like we are running from place to place. 😉 Sounds like you guys did a good job splitting up the time.
I'm glad they worked out too! It's always nice to not have to worry about buying a plane ticket!
That's what it was like when we lived in MI. We always had to choose which side of the family we would go to for holidays. This year we are just going to make people come to us for holidays.

Michigan is simply the best (of course I may be a bit biased)! We love the Detroit Zoo!:)
