9: Friends came to meet the new babies, Anna and Kellen. The babies left with alot of diapers and some new good friends.
10: Mackinac Island here we come. The ferry took us by the Mackinac suspension bridge. The ride takes about 20 minutes. The first thing you see on the island is the Grand Hotel.
11: The grand Grand Hotel
13: The Grand Hotel is very grand and everything associated with it is expensive. Margaret's Garden is the flower shop on the first floor of the hotel. The flowers were gorgeous both inside and out. We were there during tulip season. The following weekend was their tulip festival. It would have been fun to be on the island when everything was happening.
14: We had a great tour guide through the state park portion of the tour. We stopped at Arch Rock and were able to take pictures of the beauties that are Michigan
16: One form of Mackinac Island's vehicles - whoa! Nellie
18: Happy birthday, dear Megan, happy birthday to you
19: There was stormy weather the night before Megan's birthday brunch. Lauren, Jackson and Lincoln thought the cleanup was alot of fun. Thanks kids.
21: Summer fun? The ever creative adults(?) in these photos thought the kids would enjoy some fun. But a zipline? You have got to be kidding me.
22: Bicycle ride, anyone? Lauren and Lincoln decided it would be fun to ride bikes to Grandma's
26: Lauren and I met Barb and her grandson Will at the Madison Children's Museum. We had so much fun. Lauren and Will enjoyed one another's company. It was fun to see how they interacted. Amazingly, Lauren was the climber of the pair, having to save him from the heights.
27: S'mores anyone? The summer has been quite warm so when the evenings started to get cooler, we built a pit fire, roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. What messy fun!
30: Our beautiful grand children make me smile
