Our nephew celebrated his 11th birthday with a University of Michigan football inspired party on Sunday at my parent's house.

Even my Aunts (who are die-hard Michigan State fans) were open to wearing blue/gold attire for the day!

We couldn't have asked for better weather for outdoor games.

UofM certainly holds a special place with our family. It's where I attended graduate school (1990-92), Josie also went there in 2008 to have her open-heart surgery, and Chris's mother also has spent quite a bit of time over the last few years in their cardiac unit.

Go BLUE and Happy 11th Birthday, Liam!!

Such a fun theme, everyone looks so great in blue!!! I really love varsity letter style (like the M) in Michigan, we don't see enough of them in Canada (hockey country!)

This Buckeye girl will let it slide this time that you are Michigan fans!!! Looks like a great day.

That looks like a great party!
A while ago there was a Michigan game on tv (my husband was watching a game before it) and there were scenes of Michigan and I thought of my blogging friend from Michigan!
