Vacation Time! We all had a wonderful time enjoying a couple days away and going up north.
I thought I could just blog up at the cabin that we stayed in for a few days. I realized very soon though that was not going to work when I couldn't figure out how to put the pictures on the blog with my Kindle. I really need to work on this problem and figure out how to do this. Sorry I should have at least wrote where I was.
I finally gave up and decided to just enjoy the wonderful morning sunrise and sunset, the deer that I spotted in the yard, the kids having fun on the paddle boat, and the bonfire we had. I think renting a cabin or camping in the woods is the best thing you can do for a couple of days with kids and hopefully we will do it again next year.
We visited Mackinac Island (pronounced Mackinaw) and went for a bike ride around the island. The water is just so crystal clear. It seemed like some people wanted to see how fast they could go on their bikes but we all wanted to just relax and enjoy the view. We stopped and let the kids have fun on the rocky beaches, watch the butterflies fly by, sail boats bobble on the water, and just breathe.
We all went on a Sand dune ride on a sandy buggy. It was a fun, windy, and wild ride! I definitely have wild hair!
One question that was always on my mind how can people garden with that much sand everywhere. I couldn't live there- ha ha. They must use raised beds.
Then we were back to the city last night and a dentist appointment this morning. Real Life.
I completely forgot, the city smells.
