Having Blake here has been so much fun this week, and we’ve still got a few more days to go before he starts the next leg of his journey. He’s gotten in plenty of jet lag sleeping, but he’s still gone out a lot to roam the island. When he walked in the den yesterday morning at 6:30 (I was having coffee, and it was barely beginning to get light outside) and announced he was going out to exercise and then go for a run, I knew he was pretty much back on USA time.
The week so far in pics . . . .
These next three pics are from Blake . . .
We have a lot planned for the rest of the week before Blake leaves on Saturday. This time is going by way too fast!
And here I thought Blake was absolute perfection. . . .but he puts ketchup on hot dogs?!! Oh, dear. 😀 I’m so glad you’re having this time with him. Has he ever walked the bridge with Ted? Twelve times?? And I thought I was decent at 3. Got some work cut out for me! Another lovely blog, Bree. So glad you’re writing again!
Haha – indeed. I am a ketchup/hotdog man. Lol.
Blake hasn’t done the bridge walk. I’m thinking this might have been the first time he’s been here on Labor Day, but I could be wrong in that.
Ted came to mind while taking a quick trip to Sawyer. MI a few days ago. The signs on the interstate advising the Mackinac Bridge closed Labor day. Glad to see he made his Annual walk! First day of school picnic, what a wonderful tradition.
Enjoy your time with Blake.
I’m so enjoying your blogs. It’s such a treat!! Enjoy this precious time with Blake.
What a wonderful visit so far with Blake! I’m sure the escape to the leisurely pace of Mackinac is much-needed for him, as well as a fulfilling time for you! We’ve done the Bridge Walk twice, and it was exhilarating! We come to Mackinac the week of the 11th……perhaps we shall cross paths! 🙂
So glad you’re back! Love the photo of Brian and Ted. I think I’ve mentioned this before but Brian’s mom was my Brownie troop leader and he was in my sister’s class in elementary school. He and I chatted on-line a few years ago thanks to your blog. I walked by his old house on Sunday as I was in the area and wondered if he was still on the island. Now I know! Thanks Bree!
Annie, I passed your comment on to Brian this morning. He was delighted and said “It’s such a small world.”
So great!! I’m sorry I didn’t run into you when I was there last week but I did pass Ted on his way home with a pizza box!
That is hilarious! You should have yelled to him!
I was going to but he looked ike he was on a mission! I have to give him credit for walking up that hill so fast!
Looking forward to the fall like weather when we come up this month. I have to make sure we walk up to the Grand’s secret garden, we missed seeing it in July. So glad your writing your blog again!
Boy time sure does fly…seems like just yesterday Blake arrived and now your talking about him leaving already….Enjoy your last few days together…P.S. I hope you know how much your mama is gonna miss you Blake. ❤
