Helloooo there! I’m comin’ at ya right after my week-long vacation. It’s about time I’ve gotten around to gathering my pictures for a post. I took tonssss of pictures, so I’m going to split them into two parts. First thing’s first, my whole vacation started off with a visit home to Wisconsin for my high school friend Steph’s wedding!
It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony — the weather turned out to be fantastic. I also had a chance to catch up with old friends I hadn’t seen in far too long!
On to other important matters: the dessert. It wasn’t a cake, but cupcakes. Several varieties, to be exact — chocolate, vanilla, red velvet — I think there may have been one other, too. Obviously I couldn’t have just one. 😉
The next morning after the wedding, my family and I drove to Michigan for a week-long trip with my cousins. One of our first sight-seeing stops was Whitefish Point, a huge “stoney” beach, if you will — it’s filled with tons of beautiful stones that have washed up to shore. Here’s a shot of my brother and I there:
We also visited one of our favorite restaurants in the area — Brown’s Fish House. Let me tell you about this place: the fish is caught fresh each morning, and prepared that day. Instead of ‘farm-to-table,’ it’s ‘lake-to-table’! Ha! Delicious.
Later in the week, I found myself riding mopeds on back roads with my cousins (in the middle of nowhere, really). Don’t let the smile fool you — this experience was sorta terrifying!
Here’s a pic of all the cousins (from left to right — my brother, me, my grandfather and my two cousins, Colleen and Karen).
And that wraps up the first half of the trip. Next stop was Mackinac Island — one of my favorite spots!
