Vacation week…has been just that a vacation.  Everyone stays up late and sleeps in.  I am soaking in all the day trips and the slow nights.  I am loving good bonfires and down time to work on my family photos.   Aside from my 5 year old swallowing a quarter and the disaster of a beach night we had tonight all is good.  Our outings are not the picture of what would represent “Pure Michigan” but they definitely represent two parents working super hard to make memories for their kids.   Family happiness is hard work but worth it.  So here you go.  Our vacation so far.

Take a girl shopping and this is what you get!!
