We finally got to take a vacation. After missing the last three years of the family reunion, this year we got to go!!! It was held in Petoskey, Michigan, where Jeff's sister Patty and her family lives. It was fabulous, and beautiful, and just plain awesome. The kids had a blast every single day. We were so very fortunate that things fell into place for us to be able to go. Patty and Pat graciously hosted us for the entire week we were there. Jeff was able to cash in some life insurance to get enough for us to not have to worry about gas and a little spending money too and from, and I stashed away some money for awhile, so we even had a little secret money to go with.
I took about 180 pictures, and they are all awesome. I will share some here. I am so blessed to have such great family on my side as well as Jeff's side. We really, really....and I can't stress really enough, had a great time.
Cousin Catie was such a blessing to us. She is Patty and Pat's daughter. She just took all the kids under her wing and entertained them, and made the trip even more special for all of us. Here are some Catie and kid pics.
