We first went to the Dairy Store….priorities. They have so many varieties of ice cream – many of them other land grant university flavors. These were probably my favorites although I had to eat the mint chip ice cream…my favorite.
In the newer animal science pavilion, there was a nice display of those who had contributed to Michigan State agriculture and their accomplishments. This picture shows Grandpa Pope’s livestock judging team (he is in the center).
On the Wall of Fame, the Pope family are the only family who were recognized together and not as individuals. Clockwise from left to right is Grandpa Pope, Uncle Art and Great Grandpa Pope. These boys are very proud of their family.
Then we ventured over to DeWitt (where Olympic gymnast Jordan Wieber is from – watch for her in the upcoming Olympics!) to see the famous Sweetie-licious pie shop. This shop has been recognized on the Food Network several times and Linda’s pies have received numerous first places in the National Pie Championships.We got the Rhubarb Custard pie and it was divine!
