Vacations…Summer 2010 (Part 1)

7 09 2010

We love to take vacations with our children.  We truly love being with them.  Our vacations this year were split up a bit, instead of 2 long weeks, Dave took 4 half weeks.  We really loved this!  It allowed us to do short trips with the kids as well as gave us lots to look forward to.

Our first vacation was to a Family Retreat for our church.  Dave taught one of the breakout sessions.  After 4 day of camping there, we decided to take the rest of the week and just relax at a campsite with just our family.  This was a perfect week of 1/2 work and 1/2 family time.

Owen loved digging for bugs. 🙂

 For our next vacation we headed up north to Mackinaw City.  We had such a great time….we camped, rode bikes, shopped, went to the U.P for fireworks and went to the fort.  Lots of wonderful memories were made.
