Michigan Vacation~Part 1...The Lake House

We left for our 2 week Michigan vacation on a late Tuesday night (June 29)...
...after a red-eye flight from PHX to Detroit, the 3 hour time difference and the hour drive to the lake house...this is how we all felt!

The first day we hung out just relaxing. We played in the water, played games, napped, ate and hung out.

Day 2 brought us to the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum.
After spending the morning at the museum we headed back to the lake to spend the rest of the day chillaxin' by the lake and soaking up the sun!

Day 3 we headed into town to walk around and check it out.
We are a family who loves jiffy mix...we use it for biscuits, muffins, pancakes...anything baking! YUM

The boys and I in the town square

After walking around town & having lunch we headed back for more fun in the sun...
The boys 'trying' to use the rowboat! So very funny!

Ryan learning to fish for the first time.

The boys having a blast splashing around in the lake.

The next day was Saturday and the day that our cousins came to play!
On the boat
It was the 4th of July party on the Lake (even though it was only the 3rd of July!) There was a boat parade of all of the decorated boats...we dressed up too!

Lunch with family

Hitting water balloons off of the deck...such boys!

Swimming & playing in the lake

Family along with Gramma & Papa and Ryan's 2 brothers & their families

Anytime we get together there is ALWAYS a game of wiffle ball involved!

Sunset Pictures

Sparklers are always fun!

Last day at the lake with Gramma & Papa

Thanks for a fantastic time!!

And with the sun setting on the lake so does our time there...the next day we head back to our hometown and best friends for the rest of our Michigan vacation!

We felt like that after our long drive too!

We use Jiffy mixes a lot at our house. I would have taken a picture of it too!

Your hubby's never fished before? That seems so strange since I grew up around it.
