My husband, Kirk, and I left on Friday morning. We picked my parents up at their home in Portage, Michigan. We made it to Wellston, Michigan and were able to check in at the cabin we were renting for the night. The next trip was to the Dublin General Store to order a fruit platter for the family reunion. This store is amazing. If you like jerky and homemade sausage, this is the place to go. It is in the middle of nowhere, but was a fully stocked grocery store.
The next stop on our reunion weekend was to Brethren, Michigan for lunch at Traks Bar and Grill. This is a great place to eat, and one of the few restaurants in Brethren. It use to be Casey's Bar, which I had frequented a few times in my young adult life. My mom and I left Kirk and my dad at the bar and went across the street to the Brethren Cemetery, where a lot of my relatives are buried. My mom and I wanted to visit her sister's, Kathryn 'Kate', grave site. The sprinklers were on and we thought we were a safe distance from them, but no we got sprinkled with water. Luckily, it didn't get my mom's hair wet! I have been to this cemetery a few times, so I showed my mom her parents and Graf grandparents graves, after I turned the water off.
