Thanksgiving in Michigan, part 3...

This should be the last one!

On Saturday we joined the family for an all day basketball tournament! Mary Kay and 3 games in one day! We went about 45 minutes away. Garet and I only stayed for the first 2 games, then went back to the house to start packing.

Kelly had a bear that she had to look after from school. His name: Ted E. Bear. Her job was to take him everywhere with her and make a journal about his adventures. How cute is that?!

That night we got some last minute pictures in and we played a few card games. We had such a wonderful time! Garet, of course, had to do his famous shot that he takes everywhere we go! This is the whole crew:

The next morning we got up and hit the road! The night before (Saturday night) we watched the weather and the forcast was calling for snow on Sunday night. Michigan was supposed to have about a foot of snow by Monday morning! We thought we had made our trip in perfect timing.... BUT on our way home this is what we encountered...
We hit Indiana and it was snowing like crazy!! We saw sooo many wrecks and people that had skid off the road. We were backed up for awhile waiting on a wreck to clear. I really wasn't sure if we'd make it back that day or have to get a place overnight!
Eventually we made it through the snow, and then just had to deal with the rain the rest of the way home. It was a LONG drive!
