July 4th Up North

I was so grateful to take a break and head up north this past holiday weekend! With the to-do lists that never end, the anxiety of a busy season, more racing thoughts of that to-do list... Summertime goes by so fast here in Michigan, so it's imperative to take the time to do absolutely nothing. Laze around, listen to the loons, smell the fresh cut grass, just enjoy the sun... This was a weekend of fishing, kayaking, canoeing, ice cream, pancakes, coffee on the porch in our pj's reading magazines, the beach, campfires, marshmallows as big as your face... 

I did my best to create a Pinterest surprise for my niece and nephews, to no avail. Fail. The bubbles never glowed in the dark. But! The glow in the dark bowling was a hit! Until the mosquitoes swarmed. It was a really good five minutes, though.

I can't wait to get back to our little "vacation house" and do some more nothing.
