Vacation Post

While our older kids are at home, house and dog sitting for us, we have ventured up north, to Michigan’s wilderness. We still have five days to go and have completely enjoyed ourselves for far!

We have four wheeled, swam, fished, and generally relaxed!

The boys….

A break for a quick consult of the map…


The ride home….


And by the time we got back, the girls were just as happy as the boys~!   What a great time for all of us.  Apart from the mud, sand and speed, we saw two deer, a doe, and a black squirrel.


We three families have been coming to the same location for almost 10 years now, and this is the first time we’ve been to the cabins since Clarence’s passing  almost a year ago (that I posted about here). I know in my heart he would be so proud of his kids, and happy that our families are carrying on the “Bass Lake Traditions”   Sorry sweetheart, but the fires kinda suck now. That will always be dubbed “your thing”.  We love and miss you.

After the four wheeling…. we swam




We ate….


We played in the sand…..


We started a bon-fire ….

We let the kids make s’mores…..




And just generally let the kids be… well…..    KIDS!    (Including my hubby in the back, there.  lol)

Wished we could have shared some of that wonderful time. We certainly do remember the terrific time we had at Bass Lake a few years ago. I am sure it is not quite the same with out CB, but he would be proud the tradition continues. We love you guys!
