Photo messages from Boyd and Adam's epic Summer 2015 Road Trip

Bessemer Michigan Home Town 2 Mile Run. Won his age group and the next one up with a 15:49. Love that he is sporting his Red White and Blue!

Mini Golf on the way up to GiGi's. The best course they've ever played on.  Adam won by 2 strokes but Boyd got the days only hole in one.

Frozen custard, oreo and peanut butter cup to celebrate.

An evening playdate with the Messerschmidt's while stopping in Wisconsin.

Walking the dogs with Grandpa. Boyd said that he and Hobbs won the race around the block.

Brennan's trip with Grandpa. Best store ever! Free samples everywhere!

We all fight over the two good Verlo pillows at our house so a stop to the Verlo store was the perfect impromptu stop for the boys.

Playdate with the Margason's and their fun toys while in Missouri.

Hug with Renee (my forever best friend) and Reid while in Wisconsin (they are part of the Messerschmidt clan this picture is out of order)
The boys are making their rounds, so stay tuned for more photos as the trip goes on and once they return. I know there are some gems of the Matt Ramsey cousin clan and with all the Burla's coming my way once the good camera makes it home.  I sure am missing my boys and all the wonderful people they are getting to visit.
