Ahh... vacation!

All good things must come to an end. Luckily, I have about 350 pictures to help the whole family remember our trip to Petoskey, Michigan. For the past 15 days, my family has been on a camping trip.  We visit Petoskey each year and always wish we could stay a little bit longer.  Our kids even cried while we watched the "last" sunset on the beach.

The day before we left on our trip, my amazing husband surprised me by magically turning my phone into a hotspot so I could be fully connected in the woods. Pathetic (I know)... and oh so nice!

Deep in the woods and bloggin away... Do you like my tent (ok fine it's a camper)?  

I'll spare you the 350 photo album of family fun... but here are a few pictures that highlight a few of the things we did on our trip.

My kids on the shore of Lake Michigan (Marissa and Donavon)
The Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island
This is what happens when we wait in line together too long.  Ha!
church on Mackinac Island (view from Governor's summer residence) 
We toured the Kilwin's Chocolate Factory!  They gave us yummy samples and the cute little hat.
My family (minus the photographer) - campfire near the beach.
The happy campers with another year of memories that will last a lifetime!

In between campfires, playing in the sand, swimming, bike rides, long walks, sunsets and lots of smores... I have been working on some new products for my Teachers Notebook and Tpt stores and several freebies to post in the next few months.


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time :)


  2. Glad you had a good time! I would love to head up around that part of the country.
