Midland Michigan

The party was great. Friends and family cane to help Clara celebrate.

The next day Leighann drove us to Frankenmuth, a small German town similar to Helen GA. We went to Bronners, the world’s largest Christmas store.

If you can’t find a Christmas item in this store it probably doesn’t exist. Then we went to lunch at a German style restaurant that features fried chicken (go figure?). Then back to Leighann’s. The next day there was another family get together and barbecue for Clara at a different location.

Overnight at Leighann’s and then on to Rockford Illinois. Another day of driving checking in and dinner.

Dearborn & Greenfield Village

The next day was just a drive to Dearborn. All we did was get a hotel and eat dinner because we had to be on the road early.

We were going to Clara’s daughter in Midland Michigan with a stop at Greenfield Village. The Village is huge and replicated an American town in the early 1900. There are many demonstrations that included weaving on a loom and barrel making. The Village itself is beautifully manicured and there were people in the various houses and buildings to tell how that structure was used. There is also a Henry Ford Museum that we did not have time to see. The entire complex is gigantic. We should have spent two days there not just a few hours.

I urge everyone to look up the Village online because my description really does not do it justice.

We had to leave to get to Leighann’s (Clara’s daughter) because there was a birthday party for Clara that evening.
