Sunday, August 17


This was without a doubt our best family vacation ever! Here is a bulleted list of the things we did:

* played in the lake A LOT
* wakeboarded & tubed & swam a mile across the lake (Mike)
* water-skiied (me!)
* rode in the boat (L & E)
* dropped our camera in the lake :(
* made s'mores by the fire and made up silly songs about pirates
* grilled out almost every night (ate some AWESOME salmon)
* met lots of Maddexes
* won a little bit of money playing craps at the Turtle Creek Casino
* played mini-golf when it was too windy to swim
* did a wine tasting and bought a bunch of bottles from the Chateau Grand Traverse Winery
* walked around downtown Elk Rapids and ate some yummy frozen custard (not me)
* played Bocci ball
* played some Mario-Kart on the Wii
* watched some Olympics, like swimming, gymnastics, and volleyball
* made lots of things out of dominoes (Mike, L & Ian)
* ate cherry pie (also not me)
* just chilled in the hammock
* read 4 books (me)

Doesn't that sound like the perfect combination of relaxing and action-packed? Thanks so much to Bryan and Laurie for including us. We would love to go back sometime.
