Reason one: After two days of travelling I knew I would be exhausted and ready to crash
Reason two: Just to see the look on her face
So we planned it all our with her husband, he had offered to come pick us up from the Chicago airport and drive us to Michigan without spilling the beans to my mom. I wish I had my camera ready to capture the look on her face when we came through the door. My mom lives out in the Country in a log house surrounded by a beautiful garden.
Here are a few pictures from the first week of our stay.
