We just returned home from a fantastic 4th of July week in Northern Michigan. We did all the typical things…caught minnows, swam, water skied and tubed, ate donuts, and watched fireworks. But we also did some new fun things, too. I took along some face paint and beads for the 4th. My parents took Chris and I out to dinner, and we had Frank Family Vineyards wine. Fun, right? Cole and I went on a few bike rides together. We packed a boat picnic one day. We spent another day on Mackinac Island, and we rode bikes all the way around. We’re headed back up North in early August. Cannot wait!
