One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Mackinac Island



While we were in Michigan, we decided to take a trip to Mackinac Island. (we were headed up across the bridge to Paradise, MI anyway)
It was me, Travis, Evelyn, my mom, and my brother. (the picture above is from the ferry ride on the way to the island) My dad ended up taking the two dogs to the cabin we were going to be staying at in Paradise. He didn't have much interest in sight-seeing on the island. We went there as a family when I was little -- and I guess once was enough!
The weather was absolutely beautiful -- not too hot or too cold. Evelyn was great -- she pretty much slept in her stroller off and on all day long. While on the island we went into numerous t-shirt shops, bought some fudge, had lunch, ate some ice cream, and walked along the boardwalk. We also saw (and smelled) a lot of horses. Oh -- I almost forgot -- we also got one of those old-time photos. It turned out really cute! If I remember, I will scan it in and post it. :)
If you look closely at the picture of Travis and I, you can see the bridge in the background. I love the Mackinac Bridge!! I'll always be a Michigan girl at heart :)

I was in Mackinaw City yesterday. We stopped for a few hours on our trip home from Houghton. It was so much fun, the kids loved it!
