Pure Michigan...

We recently took a quick weekend trip to Mr. C's home state of Michigan to see his family.  Our first stop was his mom's house, where she hosted an open house for us.  Mr. C's extended family is pretty big (his mom is one of seven!) so it was great to get to meet a lot of his aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as neighbors and family friends.  We also hadn't seen Mr. C's mom and her husband since we got engaged last fall, so it was fun to catch up and celebrate in person.

I didn't get a lot of photos at the open house, as I neglected to bestow upon someone the dubious honor of photographer...but I did manage to capture a few.  It was a gorgeous day, with a nice breeze and a comfortable temperature in the shade of the trees.

Here's one of Mr. C laughing (always!) with his aunt and uncle, while guests are starting to arrive.

There were a lot of people once things got going (40-50 or so?) but I totally missed getting a photo of the whole crowd, since I was busy getting introduced to everyone and mingling and stuff.  Anyway, here's Mr. C and his mom, talking to another aunt:

Pretty cake!  It was delicious, too. 

Here's one of the two of us with his mom and her husband:

And then we dragged in Mr. C's brother, sister-in-law, and niece: 

That was about all the photo taking that Mr. C could handle, plus we had to wrap it up and head out to his dad's house for dinner.  I have a few photos of that visit to share as well - stay tuned!
