We are still in our hotel in Traverse City.. well we have to start packing again. Saturday we leave for San Francisco, then we are heading to a little family reunion in Seattle with Adam's family. Adam has a couple cousin's who live there and few aunts/uncles will be flying out there. The last part of our trip is Oklahoma City to relax and visit his grandparents. Very exciting.
