Labor Day Weekend

I started this post about two weeks ago and I'm just now getting back to it...so sad...For Labor Day, I went up to Detroit and spent the weekend with my friends Valerie and her kids.  Our husbands?  They decided they needed to go to this...


 Yep, they went to the opening BYU game down in Mississippi.  I am glad they got to go.  Josh had a great time.

We girls had a fun time too.  We watched "Justin Beiber: Never Say Never" while we painted our toes :)  Yep, we totally felt like we were back in 7th grade.  But it wa fun and actually a pretty good movie.  I wasn't very familiar with him before; but I definitely have Beiber Fever now :)  I even downloaded his lastest album...

We also went to one of the Ford's homes.  This was actually Henry Ford's only son's house.  It was HUGE.  If I remember right, it was something like 30,000 square feet and amazing!

My favorite thing was probably the fact that they have a little "doorbell" in EVERY room, that they would push to have the butler come to them and see what they needed....I think I totally need one of those!  Here are a few pictures.  I didn't have my camera, just my phone, so none of them are very good...
 The grounds there were absolutely beautiful.  Every room in the house has an amazing view of the lake.  Then they had an awesome swimming pool, rose garden and even a play house that had a working bathroom, a living room and a small kitchen...everything was 2/3 of a the size of a normal toilet or whatever it was.  Perfect for little kids.  It was just an awesome place...I wouldn't mind living there.

 Thanks Waters for hosting us yet again :)  We headed back home kinda early on Monday.  We went to a little BBQ with some friends that night and then got ready to get back to reality :( 

Things have actually been pretty good for us though.  I finally got hired on as a permanent employee!  YAY!  Great benefits here I come!  And I got a decent raise too :)  Life has been great...we can't complain.  We have a busy next couple of months, but it should be a lot of fun.
