If any of you are fans of the show Friends, then you would remember Joey and Janice's DAY OF FUN! Well, I can guarantee that Justin and I had way more fun than Joey ever would with Janice on our day of fun. My wonderful husband turned 28 on Thursday the 24th and for his birthday we went to Traverse City Michigan (thanks to the Dockters for telling us about it!). He took his shelf exam Friday for internal medicine and was out by 10:30am. It's not very often that Justin has a test on a Friday and then has the rest of the day off AND the weekend so I knew I had to take my chance and plan a weekend for us to get away as a family. Here are some pics of our first family mini vacation.
This is a little shop called Cherry Republic. They have tons of samples to try there and they were all so delicious. Everything was Cherry something: Cherry Rootbeer, Cherry BBQ sauce, Cherry Mustard, Cherry Chocolates, dried Cherry cookies, Cherry Salsa... I was in heaven!
Lake Michigan. You would not believe how clear this lake was, as you can see, I could not believe it either!
When we left I asked Justin what his favorite part of the trip was, he said skipping rocks on the lake. He was amazing! Here is him in action!
This picture is dedicated to Robb and Maddy. Look at how centered it is! I am amazing at self portraits!
I was so impressed with Cohen. He climbed all the way to the top all by him self. It was a great way to wear him out! After we were all done Cohen just kept telling us, "Cohen tired, Cohen tired."
It took about 4 hours to get up to Traverse City and it was the most pretty drive I have ever taken. The trees were just starting to change and the freeway was lined with them the whole way!
