I recently spent a day in Frankenmuth. My sister lives there. Not the sister I was visiting before my illegal border crossing but my other sister. Frankenmuth is about an hour away from where I’m staying in Michigan (with Jerry’s sister and her family), I rode up with my mom and stepdad.
First stop was Bronner’s. I love Bronner’s. I had not been to Bronner’s in 15 plus years. Actually the last time I was in Frankenmuth I was beginning to suspect I might be pregnant with Kellen….So this was Kellen and obviously Ethan’s first experience with Bronner’s. Kellen sort of stopped in his tracks when we walked in the door as you can see.
It was a bit of a dog fest, lots of doggie events around town and packs (well it seemed like packs) of dogs on leashes everywhere. We watched the Dock Dog competition for a while before we headed home. When I was putting away a few things I had picked up during the day, I came across a package that I didn’t think was mine. It turned out to be an ornament my stepdad had secretly purchased for me at Bronner’s and then smuggled into my bag in the car. Such a nice surpise.
I was back at Janet’s in time to enjoy another beautiful sunset on the lake.
