Again its been 3 weeks since I updated. I know my updates have really been slacking along with many other things I’m normally up to date with on the internet. Hmm….so dating back to the weekend after Joann and Aaron’s wedding Natalie and I drove up to Caseville/Port Austin for Cheeseburgerfest. It was a lot of fun and the burgers were great! We chilled with her cousin and lil cuz for a while and spent most of the time at my place with my family. It was a very much needed relaxing weekend.
The weekend after that was the big one. It was our Mackinac trip. Nick, Jenny, Matt, Lisa, Natalie, and I went up to Mackinac for a 4 day weekend. On that Friday we drove up, over the bridge in the pouring rain north, way north to this place where we then boarded a train, then the train took us to a riverboat. A two hour riverboat ride took us to the falls, Taquemenon Falls. We got some amazing pictures of the falls and the beautiful land up in the U.P. After walking around at the falls we returned on the riverboat ride and then the train and back to driving back to our hotel in Mackinaw City. After getting ready we spent the rest of the evening in Mackinac Crossings shopping and doing whatever. Saturday we woke up and it was raining, but by the time we got onto our ferry ride to the island things started to clear up. Mackinac Island was awesome. Did all the favorite, the bike ride around the island was awesome, fudge was amazing, and the Grand Hotel sure lives up to its name. It was a weird trip because it seemed like we had the worst best weather anyone could have. If we weren’t doing anything it’d rain and rain and storm, but seriously within the time we wanted to do anything throughout the vacation the weather was perfect! Oh how I already miss it. We all had a great time and it went by almost too fast. Yeah, it did go by to fast.
Through out the week I’ve been extremely busy. I have been having so much web work lately. I have been doing/updating the Skinny’s Mt. Clemens website, I wrote a special PHP script for LK Photo site, and to come I still have to update Windy Hill website, create a site for Skinny’s of Warren, create a site for the Mirage banquet hall, and an embroidery company. I may have some more work that I’m sure I forgot to list, but its a handful! So this past weekend wasn’t really planned ahead of time, but Matt and I decided to go visit my grandpa up in Cedar, MI. It was a very good weekend. It was nice to spend a weekend with grandpa and just enjoy the beauty of the land that it truely holds up there. We did get out to Leland for some fresh smoked chub and smoked turkey jerky. Good good stuff!! On Sunday my grandpa cooked us Osso Bukko. It was really good actually, first time I ever had it. The weekend was good and if only I had more time and it was closer would I return more frequently. Things have been amazingly busy so far….if you couldn’t tell with the lack of journal entries lately.
So this upcoming weekend is Labor Day weekend and I’m looking forward to it also. A gazillion of my family and friends will be going up to Port Austin for an extended weekend. Natalie’s family will be going up there to. We are both looking forward to another full weekend. Rachel and her b/f Bryan is gonna be joining us too. We’ll all be sharing a tent… ;)…race anynone? Hahahah! Anyways that’s what has been going on lately and where I’ll be this upcoming weekend.
My final year of college is about to begin in about a month. I know its a lil bit away, but I can already feel it with everyone going back to school and getting back into the school thing. Can you believe the summer is already over?! It’s a sad thing, it really is.
On the lighter note winter needs to come soon b/c I miss boarding and snowmobiling. Especially boarding. Ya know, even though Michigan can have some of the shittiest (word?) weather, I do love it here. With all the seasons and weather changes, we have it all.
So a few weeks ago Natalie and I were at Meijer and we came up with this idea to create a scrapbook of this past summer. It seriously was one of, if not the busiest summers we’ve ever had. So I got some nice wood panels from my dad and I’ll be carving out our cover for our scrapbook. I’ll be sure to take pictures of it when we’re done.
I also apologize for not having any of my pictures updated lately at anthonypics.com I havent had the time of day to do it yet, but I easily have over 400 or so pictures that I do need to get up there and they will be up soon. As for now enjoy what I do have as recent as I do and I will get them up in soon time to come.
It’s weird to think over my college years and I know they’re not completly over yet, but I already miss it. Not moving back to APT 230 this year is gonna be weird. They were some of the best years of my life and now that school is winding down things are going to be changing. I can remember way back when I started this journal, before I even went away for college and its already coming to a conclusion. It’s crazy. There are so many people that it seems like I’ve lost touch with and yet its so hard to keep in touch with everyone as much as I do wish I could. I haven’t forgot about ANYONE!
It’s about that time again, time to conclude another journel entry. I’m not too sure when my next entry will be, hopefully sooner than later. Times are definitely changing, I can tell. I’m growing up. Kinda happy and yet sad.
