It's Party Time! Let's Dare to Share!

It's Friday night, and you know what that means..
It is time to Dare to Share!  

What a good time we had spending several days in Michigan.  We got to see friends and family, and do a lot of fun things at the same time. 

On Saturday we went Jack O'Lanterns Unleashed in Lansing. They have some pretty cool pumpkins on exhibit at the Ingham County Fairgrounds.  My favorite was this pumpkin sculpture of Taylor Swift.  

After leaving Lansing, we spent some time with my kids before the next leg of our trip. On Monday we made a stop in Frankenmuth , Michigan. It is a quaint tourist town with amazing food, quaint shops, and Bronners the "World's Largest Christmas Store".  While I was living in Michigan, I made sure to take a least one trip to Frankenmuth each year.  It can be pretty busy on weekends this time of year. Going on Monday and Tuesday was definitely worthwhile. We had low crowds and could see things that we normally don't get a chance to see when there are a lot of people.  

At the last Dare to Share party, I teased that I was going to be seeing one of my favorite bands of all time in concert while we were in Michigan.  Did you guess it correctly?  I actually have two bands that I consider my favorites.  Queen and Bon Jovi. I have wanted to see both of them for years!! I almost had the chance to see Bon Jovi a few years ago. A friend got the tickets and we were all set to see them in July of 2020.  Well as you know, concerts were all canceled during during 2020, so that did not happen.  When we found out in March of this year that Queen was going on an American tour we made sure to get tickets.  I am so happy we went. It was the BEST.CONCERT.EVER!  It was so surreal to see Brian May and Roger Taylor play in real life.  Adam Lambert does such a great job as the lead singer.  We even had a few Freddy sightings on the big screen.   

While we were in the Detroit area, we made one more stop before heading home. If you love history and innovation you need to make a stop by the Henry Ford Museum .  There is so much to see, and we learned a lot of interesting things while we were there.  We were also hoping to see Greenfield Village while we were there, but it as closed on Wednesdays.

Now that you have seen what I have been up to, I would love to see what you have been doing.  Link up and HAVE FUN!

  6. What a fun weekend! My in-laws live in Michigan, so I've been to Frankenmuth a fair number of times--so fun. Queen and Bon Jovi would be amazing. I guessed right last week with "80's" ha ha. Thanks for hosting the linkup!

    1. You were definitely right with your 80s guess. :) I lived about an hour south of Frankenmuth for many years. I try to get up there about once a year.


I would love to hear from you!
