Trip to Michigan









Our drive to Michigan was an adventure. We left right after graduation for Idaho Falls and stayed Saturday night at my grandma's house. Monday morning we left about 6 a.m. and drove through Idaho to Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota. We stopped at Kelly Inn in Bismark. Then, the next day we drove into Minnesota, Wisconsin and finally Michigan. We tried to stop at mom and pop restaurants for food -- and mostly just ate what we brought with us, as my grandma gave us sandwiches, water bottles and some healthy munchies.

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
