The Location of My Marriage (aka The Henry Ford)

Stop number two on my Dtown Bucket List was the Henry Ford Museum (and of course some eateries).  

When we first got to the museum my friend Steph informed me that the last time she was there a wedding party was also there taking pictures and having a reception.  Um....  can I please do that too?  I mean how good does this pose look?  Add in a wedding dress and a groom and heaven is complete.

After this revelation the museum was a haze of day-dreaming loveliness.  I was so impressed by everything I saw.  I regressed to nerdom in my head on many occasions but I loved all of it.  There were so many cool things to see and look at.  I was constantly impressed by how many things Henry Ford was involved in.  He had a hand in everything honestly.  And the sheer volume of exhibits in the museum reminded me so much of the Smithsonian museums in D.C.  I was just soaking it all in.  Here are some of the highlights.

Of course the cars must be involved.

The Rosa Parks bus.

And a fantastic car we got to actually hang out in :).

And last but not least my close to favorite picture of the day came from the Women's Rights exhibit.

After the museum we went to eat at this awesome place called The Jolly Pumpkin.

Can we just say amazing?  It was such a fun place.  The experience was only enhanced by the presence of Rosemary Truffle french fries.  It.  Was.  Amazing.  
Such a fun birthday weekend!

Yes, it will be the social event of the season and if you do it during school and in the daytime you could have lots of little kids running around. Um please tell me that when you get married there that you will have a picture of you in your wedding dress in the hot dog bun....It would make the moment last forever. One last thought, You also forgot to mention that you turned a little green with envy when we walked out and saw a wedding party going into the museum. On that note I can't wait for this to happen.

I did turn a little bit green it's true. And the millions of little children completed the magic of the moment. OH and the hot dog bun, how could I have forgotten that?! Yup. Done. It's happening. And you're invited.

BTW, the women's rights thing is funny. So I'm guessing that women are not expected to behave in a refined, polite way anymore.
