Thank God for another year of life. For my birthday, I vacationed with my 3 "J's" in Northern Michigan.
At our accommodations in Maple City, a turkey family of 5 meandered through the back yard, and blue jays flitted about in pine trees.
Some of our destinations/activities included: Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, Traverse City, Northport, Leeland, Cherry Republic, and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We explored numerous lakeside stops, and visited various lighthouses. We gazed at beautiful sunsets and expansive prairies, visited Port Oneida Rural Historic District and so much more...
We went stargazing at Thoreson Farm. (Someone forgot to tell the Mosquitos they weren't invited!) The weather was magnificent. We met lots of friendly and unusual people, all with a story to tell.
Great Michigan cherries...mmm. We truly had a "Pure Michigan" experience. What a blessing to spend time together as a family, and spend time enjoying God's second book...Nature!
