This last weekend Jason and I had our first visitor out here in Michigan. My friend Autumn made a pit stop to see us on her way out to the East Coast. Autumn and I met back when I was living in Park City. She has nannied a lot as well and we immediately bonded after sharing crazy nanny stories. :) It was so much fun to have someone to show around and to have a friend to hang out with!
We spent Saturday exploring Detroit.We went to a farmers market, where I decided that in order to really benefit from that I needed to actually be able to cook. But I always enjoy walking around and the people watching in Detroit is great! We also went to the Detroit Institute of the Arts. This had been one of the places on my lists of things to do while we lived here so I was very excited to go. Plus we got in free via my family I nanny for! Yeah, nothing beats a free day at the art museum. It was a beautiful museum and we even got to do arts and crafts! If you can't tell by the picture, Jason was thrilled about this part of the day! He is such a great sport to put up with me and my friends all of the time. After the museum we headed across the border and into Canada for dinner. We ate at Caesars Palace again and decided that Canadian food really isn't that great. I still love the view from that side of the river though.
The weather was pretty stormy the rest of the time Autumn was in town so we really didn't get out and do to much. It was so great to have a visitor though and I am looking forward to July when some of my family comes out and stays with us!
