Hubby and I took the kids up to my uncle’s and aunts vacation home on the Lake in Michigan. We were only there 2 days but we had so much fun. Unplugged fun!!

The best part of the whole trip was my 5 yr old saying, “this is the best day of my life”.  He has no idea what life has in-store for him and only gets better from here. Here’s a few pictures from our Family Vacation action.


the lake was absolutely beautiful especially when the sun was setting. It’s been over 20 yrs since I’ve been tubbin. Yes brave and incredibly fun. I’m still sore 3 days later.



We had such a great time we hope to take the kids back again soon. The weather was perfect. Not too hot not too cold. The kids loved it.  We did everything from fishing to jet skiing, tubbin and we even took a ride on a pontoon boat. The lake wasn’t that crowded and the people that were there were very friendly.


What I really loved about our vacation was that no one had electronics. I wasn’t staring at the top of their heads while they played video games, or selected music on their iPods. We had a whole weekend of sun, fun and family.

    I like to be outside, but I am not a big fan of lakes. (My husband has caught a fish locally that had a leech attached to it.)
