Well, we planned and prepared for a trip to Northern Michigan right after Christmas with my family. We packed, woke up early, and set off thinking we just might drive out of the major blizzard after about an hour. Hmm, nope. Instead, we turned around, hit up the Starbucks drive-thru, and headed back to my parents’ house for the week. It was an unexpected restful vacation full of lots and lots of fun! Santa brought me a Kindle, so I had lots of time to read. We worked on puzzles in the dining room and did a lot of sledding and snow playing. We took the boys bowling and learned that Zeke has some great moves! It was almost like Northern Michigan without the 8 hours each way in the car. Bonus!
