My brother's visit- Part 1

Yeah, I'm not sure how many parts this series will have. This is the first time Dan and his family were back in Michigan since 2004.'s been awhile.
The last time Adam saw Uncle Dan, he was just learning to walk.

We had a great visit with Uncle Dan, Aunt Erin, Hunter and Trapper.

This was Colin's first time meeting them.
At first, he didn't want anything to do with them (especially Dan), but with a little persistence, Uncle Dan soon became a favorite.

Below you'll find my super awesome nephews.
I love these boys.
We did tons of totally touristy stuff while they were here.
Beach visit:
Trolley ride (Adam's personal favorite):
They even played at the Imagination Station and ate ice cream at Sweet Temptations
(and put the push pin on the map)
Fun was had by all.
We also spent some time with family and friends.
We took all the boys to see Great Grandma and Great Grandpa (GG and Bumpa)
Grandma was so excited to see Dan and his family.
She didn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.
The boys spent most of the visit running up and down the ramp of their deck.
Uncle Dan took this time to teach Colin how to do the crane move from the Karate Kid.
He also taught Colin to say "BONSAI!"
We also chilled out at the homesteads.
Dave and Dan get along well.
Sometimes a little too well:
We hosted them at our house as well- so they could see the Love Shack,
and celebrate Colin's second birthday.
The boys went toad hunting. They caught 13.

It was so great to see them.
I'm really hoping its not another 4 1/2 years before we get to see them again.
