What I Did on My Summer Vacation...

12 days.
1400 miles.
4 campgrounds.
2 peninsulas.
1 memorable trip!
Tahquamenon Falls, Upper Peninsula

Michigan has so many wonderful sights to see, I can't begin to tell you all the great things we did over the last 2 weeks.
Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City

We saw sand dunes, lighthouses, wineries, and waterfalls.
Old Mission Lighthouse, Traverse City

We played on rollercoasters, in swimming pools, on beaches, and on boats.
Michigan's Adventure Park, Muskegon

We rode horses, petted a black bear, and visited a butterfly house.
Oswald's Bear Ranch (Rescue)

We played cards and checkers, we rode bikes, and went on hayrides.
Lake Leelanau RV Park

We made a million memories and laughed everyday.

Oh, and I found the most perfect pair of shoes... made entirely of chocolate!
Sanders Chocolates, Mackinaw Island

It was the absolute best family vacation we've ever had, but there's no place like home!
Just 2 weeks of vacation left until I have to report back to work... (Boo!)
So, it's back to the sewing room for me, I've got embroidery jobs to do and back to school clothes to sew!

I think a chocolate pump is a pump that I could manage....

Welcome home!

Looked like a fabulous vacation. I may plan to do that in our camper next year except in Alabama!!

Bunny said...

Glad you all had such a wonderful time. And those shoes!!!

Gail said...

I suppose those shoes would do your figure more good if you wore them. Melting on hot pavements! yeh.

Mary said...

What fun! Thanks for sharing the good times with us. Was that bear actually awake????

OMG, love the chocolate shoes! And I love Traverse City, too . . . I go up there every Fall for a quilting retreat. Northern Michigan is just gorgeous, especially in the fall.

These pictures do such a great job recapping your summer. The first picture, in particular, is just gorgeous - totally frame-worthy m'dear. :)
