We Made It!

After an 11 hour trip to Drummond Island on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a fun three days at a beautiful lake house and a 12 hour trip home, we can officially say that we're extremely brave and adventurous...not at all crazy like many thought when they heard our plans! (Well, maybe a little crazy here and there, but that's another story!)

Here's the whole gang: Christina holding Cooper, Heather, Corinne, Malachi, Erin holding Elliott and Shannon holding Cade.

Can you tell we were excited to get to there in time to catch the ferry? Cade and Cooper are thinking, "what are these crazy women doing to us?"

Make your own pizza night.

Story time with Shannon.

The babies hanging out on the deck.

Ice cream!

Elliott and Cooper, which one looks the guiltiest?

Our five cute kiddos: Corinne (almost 3), Cooper (10 months), Cade (10 months), Elliott (7 months), Malachi (4 years).It may not have been the relaxing vacation of years past, but we really did have an incredibly fun time together. I had many "I-can't-remember-the-last-time-I-laughed-this-hard" moments and I am so thankful for such wonderful friends and great memories. I love you girls!

Those kiddos are adorable. The pic with Malachi and Corrinne is precious! Relaxing isn't all it's cracked up to be, but laughing hard and long is.

That looks like a blast...and next time I want to tag along. You all are adventurous but without a little adventure it is not worth it.
Wonderful picture of all the kids by the lake. Adorable.
