Our Trip to Pure Michigan Begins Tomorrow!

By July 22, 2011 , , , , , , ,

Cool breezes, sand between my toes, fun with family and friends and Baby Ray Ray's first trip to Pure Michigan. And it all begins on Saturday ... 

Every time one of these commericials comes on the radio - I'm ready to jump in the car and head up to our family cottage on Houghton Lake - the state's largest inland lake. And guess what ... the time has finally, finally come for our first family vacay, and in fact, the first vacay that Big D has taken since March 2010 (our Babymoon) - no joke! So if you need me in the next several days - I'll be playing another endless round of Putt Putt golf, teaching Baby RayRay how to make sand castles, reading a good book or floating around the lake sipping on a cold one in Pure Michigan, baby!

I see a day trip to Mackinaw Island in our future

Every year, my family gets up to the lake - this year, we are bringing two of our best friends and their kiddos!
