Hello, hello! Just a quick blog to officially invite anyone and everyone to the sweet little town of Clio, Michigan. Let me just tell you a little about the area: It's a measly 10 minutes away from Birch Run which has a HUMONGOUS outlet mall. Also 10 minutes away is the town of Frankenmuth, which is a Bavarian looking town. (Frankenmuth has the world's largest Christmas store that is entertaining to walk through even if you're not buying anything, and 2 hotels that have indoor water parks.) It's a very fun, touristy kind of place. The actual city of Flint (15 minutes away) offers most things you'd find in a big-ish city: 2 good malls, many restaurants, a handful of museums, and more. Also, only 45 minutes away is Detroit, which I hear has some pretty fun stuff as well. PLUS Detroit has a major airport (for our family and friends living farther away). And for those of you who are LDS, that means there is a temple a mere 50 minutes away from here.
Of course, the main reason I'd assume you'd want to visit is because of Anna and Benjamin, and let me just say, I am positive they will not disappoint. Sometimes I just can't take their cuteness...they are both at very fun stages.
So far, we've had my parents and Chuck here when we first moved in. Then Melissa, Ashely and KC came down for Labor Day weekend, which was also Melissa's birthday. (Pictured above is KC and Anna swimming in the pool at our apartment.) Last weekend Melissa came down again (YAY!!!) for a fun-filled weekend which included a trip to the Children's Museum that Anna was sooooo excited for. We have a few other visits lined up over the coming month, but I just wanted to make sure everyone knew they were invited. :-) Just to reiterate, we really are adjusting well to life down here. It's been fun. Moving has many exciting, refreshing aspects to it, but it would be nice to see all the friends and family we left behind...and those we didn't live close to in the first place. Anna really gets so excited when someone comes to visit. She is quite the hostess and always offers up her bunk bed, although mainly she just tries to convince you to sleep in it with her. Silly girl. Well, I'm sure you're all just dying to come visit now, so feel free to give us a call or e-mail. :-) Have a beautiful day!!!
