The rest of the vacation went so quickly! On Tuesday, my sister Pat, mom, Amanda and I drove up to Frankenmuth, MI to go to Bronners. It is Christmas on steroids! Wow! It was a lot of fun and I did get a few Christmas ornaments and gifts but by the end of the day we were pooped. Wednesday, Pat, Mom and I went to the outlet malls right by Pat's house in Howell. OH MY! they have outlets for my favorite children's stores: Gymboree, The Children's Place, Baby Gap, Oshkosh and Carters! Everything was on sale or clearanced and I made off with some bargains! I loved it! Amanda got to go fishing with Uncle Jeff again on Wednesday and actually touched the worms. Ben and Caitlyn stayed home with Jeff and Jordan while I was out and I think they will miss being waited on hand and foot :0) Thursday was the long drive home but the kids did great and we stopped every few hours for potty breaks and food. Friday we spent in Decatur at the pool with Jennifer, Natalie and Ashlee. The kids had fun, but by 3:30 Ben had had enough and wanted to go home. He was so tired. All in all we had a great week, but we are ready to get back into our routine.
