a look back at our trip to Michigan

The boys and I spent a long glorious three weeks in Michigan this summer. I took tons of photos with my iphone. I took some with the dslr too, but more with the phone. Though granted, not everything is here, the boys had a few play-dates I didn’t get photos of, and I had some girl dates I didn’t photograph either. But in general, this sums up our trip :)

And, as to be expected, I posted a lot on instagram as our trip went along.

Here are my favorites…

Starting with the trip out…

The boys love to fly and are great travelers, but after a 16 hour travel day nothing felt better than finally pulling into mom and dad’s driveway…

My sister and I took the boys and went location scouting. The boys hated it. :)

We spent lots of time in the lake, both the one my parents live on and Lake Michigan.

The boys also played a lot at GG and Papa’s house.

One of Cody’s requests was eating ribs at Wheatberry…

… one of Gavin’s requests was making a pie with GG.

We also did some other random playing.

I got to spend time with friends, spend some time at the beach with my mom, and listen to live music at the winery…

We enjoyed some awesome sunsets at the lake…

… and one amazing sunrise.

Plus, I got to take lots of just cool random photos…

Working up this blog post had me in tears, feeling all homesick. We had such a good time though. I’m looking forward to another visit in the spring…

    I so love this! I’m sure I’ll be back to scoll through many more times. The summer went by way too fast. You’ve got some great shots here to keep my memories fresh. And wishing for summer all over again. Miss you and those boys so much.
