A Quick Visit UP North


It is always fun to enjoy the beautiful state that we live in, this past weekend we vacationed with Grandma and Grandpa Knoll and took a quick trip North.  It was a surprisingly warm weekend and it was a perfect time to be on the lakes and adventuring around Mackinaw Island and the Soo.

Nothing Like A Homemade Meal ... That Someone Else Makes...

It used to be a yearly tradition, but lately it hasn't been as easy to visit Middlebury.  But we still attempt to visit as often as we can.  There is something very comforting in a family style dinner featuring the same food for over 30 years and something very exciting to see a little barn shaped restaurant turn into a giant destination.

4th of July Fun

It was a wonderful long 4th of July weekend filled with work on the house, family time, fireworks, dinners and friends.  These are some of my favorite times of the Summer.

Summer Favorites .. Swimming & Nutella


We have had some amazing Summer swimming days, both at home and at Swim School.  There is nothing better, in my opinion, then spending the day in the sun and by the water.  Lilly would agree, but she would also claim that there needs to be, at least a taste of, Nutella in her day.  In fact in this photo she is showing off her bathing suit from Auntie Katie and her giant Nutella grin.  Of course, I'm a fan of Nutella in the Summer, because that stuff is so sticky and messy, I am sure it cannot be real food and it can only be eaten OUTSIDE.
