Our unexpected vacation started with visiting Brandon's Grandmother in Indian River. She is such a wonderful host and this visit was doubly special since Brandon's Aunt and Cousin were visiting from North Carolina! We decided to take a trip together to the northern most point of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, Mackinaw City!
It was wonderful to have my cousin Curtis and his girlfriend Jaclyn come with us this day!
My cousin Curt & Josiah
I don't think this boy know anything else to do with the water,
other than throw rocks into it! lol
We crossed the Mackinaw Bridge and had lunch together in the Upper Peninsula.
Like always, we had to take a trip over to my family's cabin on the lake. There we were able to really relax, go out on the boat, sit by the bon fire, and marvel at God's masterpieces!
