The second post for today. You should be thrilled. 🙂
The last weekend before the girls started school, we spent 4 days at Becky’s cottage. We spent the time relaxing, playing games and reading. Though we did venture out on 2 outings in that time.
Our first outing was one for Becky and I to enjoy on our own. We headed to a county park that had cliffs which dropped off to shallow, rocky Lake Michigan. The scene was almost frightening at first. I even thought about calling a lawyer to draft up a Will before going close to the edge, but I got over that quickly. Before I knew it my camera was out and I had taken over 100 pictures. Over 100 pictures of cliffs, water, and rocks. I know, it sounds thrilling. Really the hiking and sights were so gorgeous that I just couldn’t help myself.
The terrain was a little rough, but it was worth it. It wouldn’t have been hiking if it was flat ground. I could have gone on forever hiking and sightseeing. Just look at some of the pictures.
The next outing that we did was heading to Peninsula State Park in upper Door County. We try to make it up there once every summer as the kids love the beach and the beach has a ramp and “walkway” that goes most of the way down to the water that the wheelchair can use. I love it!
We spent a good part of the day at the beach lounging on the sand and playing in the water. Fun was had by all and Andy, Cassie, Kalli, and I came home with a little sunburn. That part…not as much fun.
We had a blast and at the end of the day we were all pooped out. Brady even decided that he would (finally! – after hours of fighting it) take a nap at the beach.
