You can see the first part of our Michigan adventure when I run crying and hide while my husband makes me cross the Mackinac Bridge. And now the fun continues.
We drove from Mackinaw City through Bay Harbor to Petoskey where we stopped for lunch. We went to the grocery and picked up a bunch of things to have a picnic so that Finn could run around and play.
Um. I want to have lunches like this and have Finn play here every day. This is a park I could sit at all afternoon and Finn was in heaven. Can you imagine how peaceful it would be to just hang out right on the lake all the time?
We drove around a bit while deciding what we wanted to do for lunch and cuteness abounds in Petoskey. I’m pretty sure I want to move there or at the very least vacation there often, which is lucky since it’s only about a six hour drive. Gorgeous.
And then we were off to Traverse City.
A room right on the lake. Dave made fantastic burgers with avacado + cheddar and we enjoyed the sunset on the dock… please ignore the fact that I looked like death warmed over. We were enjoying the pretty sunset damn it. I can’t look brilliant at all times.
A trip to Old Mission Lighthouse. The boys made the trek to the top while I made sure the beach was still there.
Still there. Still breathtaking.
And an obligatory picture for Aunt Lisey with some crazy ass hair thanks to the wind.
And then it was lunch at Bad Dog Deli.
And on to Grand Rapids to spend an fantastic evening with friends. I can’t believe we didn’t take a single photo the entire time we were there. There must have been too much laughing, talking, gourmet pizza eating, watching Finn pretend he was Buzz Lightyear for the 29249 time, and hanging out with great friends. It was a fantastic end to our Michigan adventure.
Y’all deserve a medal if you’ve made it all the way through our vacation slides without losing your mind.
