The Fourth of July in MI

The Fourth of July was another whirlwind trip, with destinations in IL, MI, and WI. First we had a fantastic time at Lori Hamburg and Chad Edwards' wedding in Danville, IL (no pictures, though!). Then we headed to visit our good friends the Applegates in lower Michigan and see sister Colleen and Bill's renovations at their home in lower MI. We made it to Mike's hometown for the fireworks, but got rained out in a real gulleywasher. The next day we headed to the cabin with the whole extended Tighe family for the week. Here are the younger cousins (and Aunt Colleen):

We went to Osvald's Bear Ranch and nearby Tahquahmenon Falls on one of our days and saw tons of big black bears close up! Here's Uncle Dave posing with a ferocious one, then Eva with a frog she caught on the grounds, and a couple of bears:

After leaving the U.P., we stopped for the night in Green Bay and stayed in the shadow of Lambeau Field. We visited the next morning, then headed to the airport and back home to OR! Dommy sure looks good in a cheesehead, doesn't he?
