Liz grew up near Ann Arbor and knew it like the back of her hand. Let me tell you, that town has charm. So many wonderful little places to eat, shop, peruse.
Hollanders was heaven. Imagine every kind and color and style of wrapping paper, letterpress card, stationary set all in one store. I started having contractions in here I was so giddy. Pretty stores are just so good.
Also sending me into pre labor was Elephant Ears, one of the neatest baby stores I've ever seen. There are a lot of cool products that have come out since I had Tate (I feel out of the loop already!)
Tate is all about having a twin stroller now. Of course.
A large chocolate cake and apple tart was shared for Bens birthday, and was the perfect pick me up after a long day on our feet. You'd think of day of walking around, eating and shopping would be miserable for Tate. Nope. She kept asking to go walking around the city more! It doesn't hurt that she absolutely adores both Liz & Ben and I think really misses them.
To end the day, Liz took us on a driving tour of the amazing U of M campus. It was unbelievable and I can't believe the building's these kids get to live in. The one above is just one of the beautiful student dorm buildings. I pretty much felt like I was driving through Hogwarts.
Can you see where we are in this one? My mom and dad will know right away. YES! There is a Five Guys on campus and when we drove by it I about pooped my pants with excitement. I have been craving a good burger + fries since we've been here.
Liz and Ben will be confused about this because when we left them, we were on our way home. Then we had to stop at Wendy's so that I could pee (for the 50th time), and while in there we decided we better not leave Ann Arbor without having ourselves a burger from Five Guys.
So we headed back down to campus and indulged!
It was such a wonderful weekend. Since Wyatt's been in medical school, we rarely get to spend this much time together. I forget sometimes, how much fun we all have together.
Thanks again Liz and Ben!!
