Well its a little late but we have been BUSY....so here is our blog post on Family Vaca this year. Once again, it did not disappoint. We had an AWESOME time on Lake Michigan with a house filled to the brim = 35 people to be exact!
We had heard how wonderful Lake Michigan was and we are inundated with media advertising for "Pure Michigan" but to be truly honest I never thought I would be so impressed with our surroundings. The small towns along the lake are awesome, the beach is beautiful and has the most perfect sand for little ones, and the water is unbelievably clear while also being calm and fully enjoyable. No rough waves, no non-swimmable days, etc. that you might find on the coasts. It hit me one day when I was wading 15 feet from the beach with Sutton on my hip, tossing a frisbee to Chris in the water and watching Shayden and Quinton playing between us - this has never been possible in the ocean = We Have Found The Perfect Spot!!!
Our week was filled with large meals, precious moments with our nieces nephews and children and picture perfect evenings under Pure Michigan sunsets. Here are few pictorial highlights from the trip.
Checking out the Marina and a local coffee spot.
Chris (his scruff) and Sutton enjoying the water.
Look Mom, a dead fish.

And now, for the highlight reel....family activity night, The Harlem Shake.
