Jenna Goes to Michigan Part Three

Or maybe we should call it Jenna learns to eat like a Wilczewski in Michigan! The best part of our annual Wilczewski Family Reunion at the lake is the food. Always a yummy breakfast, snacks and lunch throughout the day, then a delicious dinner followed by some sort of yummy dessert. Then to top of the night we have hot dogs and smores at the campfire. You are guaranteed to gain at least 5 pounds during this week. Here are some pictures of Jenna learning how it works. Unfortunately she was sound asleep by the time we had campfire, but she hopefully get to stay up for that on the next trip.

Jenna enjoying some Pinconning cheese...this cheese is made in Michigan and is a pretty big deal to our family.
Yaya sharing some dinner with Jenna.
Stuffing her face with eggs.
Waiting patiently for her breakfast and attempting to balance a spoon on her nose.
Sharing a dog biscuit with Uncle Bob. This may seem odd to most,  but I gave her that dog biscuit to take to him. When I was little, he had me convinced that he actually ate dog food and treats. I still occasionally send him a box of dog bones.
Popsicle time! Yea!
Yummy baked beans, potato salad and corn on the cob.
Roscoe, of course was happy to clean up anything she did not manage to eat. What a good little helper.

Jenna Goes to Michigan Part 2

We'll just call this segment, Jenna Stays Very Busy in Michigan!

She rode on Uncle George's tractor with Bumpa.
Uncle Bob pushed her around on a car.

She dreamed of taking the paddle boat out on the lake with Yaya and Bumpa.

She made Yaya chase her all over the place.

She played in the lake with Bumpa.
She attempted to catch minnows.
She drove a boat.

Then she went for a ride in a real boat! Uncle Bob even let her drive.
She really enjoyed herself, especially pushing the horn!

Yaya and Katie taught her how to swing on a big girl swing.
Of course, she preferred doing it all by herself.
Checking out Exie's Dora scooter.
Jenna chasing Exie as she rides her scooter.
Jenna's turn! Thanks Aunt Claudia for your help!
She inspected many plants and flowers.
Finally! Time to relax and watch Yo Gabba Gabba or maybe it was Elmo.

Jenna Goes to Michigan Part 1

We recently took Jenna for her first trip to Michigan for my family reunion. Jenna had a blast getting to know her extended family and really took to my two younger cousins, Anya and Lexie. Or as Jenna would call them, Yaya and Exie. It was pretty safe to assume that wherever Jenna went, Yaya and Exie were sure to follow. Here are some pictures of the girls playing a game Jenna made up called "Hats." they were putting mixing bowls on each other's heads and laughing and calling them hats. As you can see from the pictures, they had a great time!

I think it's a good look for her!
Yaya being silly.
