summer days

It seems like this summer is just slipping away from me, way too quickly. I am now realizing that all of the things that I thought I would Would accomplish this summer must be done in the near future, or I will soon be embarking on another school year with no time for all of these chores. However, our Michigan summer weather has been perfect this year, the sun is out, the water is warm, the waves are big, and the friends are close by. We are reminded that this is why we call West Michigan home!

We stayed at a cottage for a week with my family and found a cherry orchard nearby that was bursting with wonderful, juicy cherries that were crying out to be picked.

Sleeping Bear dunes must be one of the most beautiful places in the world, or at least in Michigan. We spent about 10 minutes to get to the bottom of the dune where this photo was taken. It took us about 45 minutes to get back up. Summer just doesn't get much better than this. If you haven't enjoyed the Lake Michigan lakeshore, come and stay with us in the summer, we would love to show you the sights.
