Labor Day Weekend: Sunday - Campus Tour

Laurie wanted Dylan to see the University of Michigan Campus up close and personal, so we set off for Ann Arbor, and met Tom and Brandy at the Cube behind the Union.

Dylan proves that he is a Cube Twirler.

The Engineering Arch, often referred to as the Engine Arch. I guess it's still the Engineering Arch even though the School of Engineering has been moved to North Campus. Brandy's degree is in Engineering - Nanotechnology Engineering.

After the campus tour, we left Tom and Brandy, who were off to get some bubble tea (?). We agreed to all meet back at Sniders around fourish - Bill was doing a cookout for us - such a great deal!

The rest of us headed back to Belleville to honor a request from Jana to have Dylan see the handprints in the driveway at 17287 Haggerty Road. When we pulled up in front, there were two cars in the driveway, so Dick went to the door and rang the bell, but no one answered. I figure that they were walking in the park. Anyway, we got good pictures of the handprints, and of Dylan fitting his hands into each one. The cement was poured in July, 1974, and besides our three kids, there are the prints of our dog Penny, and two cats - Tiger and Champagne. It was a real blast from the past!

Back at Snider's, we had a great cookout, followed by Unbirthday Cake! Yum!
Laurie and Dylan's plane tickets were Dick's birthday present to himself, so we had an early celebration!
