I had two goals this fall for just our family...the cider mill and a trip to MSU. We went up on Saturday and had the perfect day! Billy was a little nervous how a day at our alma mater which we only know pre-kids would be post-kids. It went off without a hitch and certainly made us want to make the trip more often.
Our first stop as Delta Gamma. The house looks amazing! They have made a lot of improvements and the overflowing floralness in every room circa 1999 has been replaced with more subdued and neutral patterns, still sticking with the color scheme of bronze, pink and blue though.
It was a quick trip in and out just to show Lauren where mom use to live and of course a picture in front of the anchor with my future DG!
We then made our way down Grand River, and our usual dialog begins..."Flat's closed?", "they have a Chipotle now?", "that is still there?" We parked and then made our way over to Sigma Chi to meet up with some old friends and their little cutie, Claire.
The gentlemen at Sigma Chi put on a great spread and much to our surprise, the house was in tip-top shape!
Wills was a trouper all day either being passed around or strapped in the baby bjorn, though he was trying to sneak some brews:)
Our Future Spartans!
See what I mean?
I had to sneak this pic in...boat shoes, boat shoes, boat shoes!
(hint, hint - Billy is looking for a new pair if anyone needs a birthday gift idea)
And at both houses we had to point out our pictures to Laurenand secretly ourselves, to remind us that we can't be that old if our pictures are still up!
This picture cracks me up...I could crop it, but after it was taken his friend asked me how he did. I said it was great, not wanting to redo with the kids...his response, "Amateur photographer." He was kidding, but seemed really proud:)
Our last stop was with some Valassis friends who deep fried a turkey...best we've ever had! Thanks Andy and Suzanne for letting us be part of your tailgate. And the win made the day even that much better!
