Well we're finally in a routine and it's become a tad bit..routine. Wake up, run errands, swimming, lunch, naps, figure out what to do and not swelter, dinner, bed. Don't get me wrong, we're having lots of fun, but I'm so ready for our upcoming break when we'll be going to Traverse City, Michigan!!! The kids are excited too and *A* asks me every morning how many more days. The drive will be the hard part, 12 hours in a truck with 3 adults and 2 children. Oh my. At least there will be lots of people to keep the kids entertained and we'll make fun stops along the way.
Traverse City is a slice of heaven on Earth and we would move there in a heartbeat. It's the cherry capital of the world and we just happen to be going during the International Cherry Festival which is a whole lotta downhome fun complete with pit spit contests, an awesome parade, a frisbee dog contest, and lots of cherry-enhanced food!
Here are some pictures from our visit 4 years ago when *A* was 6 months old. Gotta go dream about cooler weather, Vernor's Ginger Ale, amazing sunsets, dark chocolate covered cherries, and rock-collecting on the beach.
