Mackinac Island


We took a day last week to sneak away from fishing and drive up the coast to Mackinac Island. All accidentally dressed in blue (typical), we did all the best kinds of touristy family things...eating hotdogs on the beach while Phoebe tried to kill seagulls, renting bikes to ride along the water, ice cream and people watching, visiting fudge shops and magic shops and romanticizing a life lived on such an island (there's a library on the beach!). It was a really beautiful day, and although I think everyone prefers the slow and steadiness of being on the lake fishing, it was nice to have a new adventure together...carving out a little bit of time for just the four of us.

  1. That time is so important. My family of five will be finishing up our France trip tomorrow and we have stayed with different friends for seven weeks. The times alone with just us were so needed. Looks like you had a wonderful day!!

  2. "while Phoebe tried to kill seagulls" <-- laughing so hard at that line and the fact that you just stated it like no big deal it's per usual. Hilarious. (But also... why does she want to kill the seagulls?)

    That photo of you four is great!
