Our wonderful vacation has come to a close. Rob and I stayed at a campground in Bellaire, MI (near Shanty Creek) in a cute little cabin. Five days was a very long time for me to be away from the kids! I probably annoyed the sitters calling all of the time to talk to them :) None-the-less, everyone lived :D

Rob and I spent the majority of our days boating on the "chain-of-lakes" and our evenings having campfires (or attempting to do so). We launched at various public launches and found our way from one lake to another until evening. It was fantastic! We had gorgeous weather, were able to spend a lot of quality time together, and even sleep in! I was absolutely amazed at how beautiful some of the lakes were, especially Torch Lake! The water was crystal clear, turquoise in color, and it had the most silky sandy bottom! If you haven't gone there, you need to!

It looks gorgeous. I'm sure you enjoyed having a vacation, just the two of you but I'm like you, I would be calling the kids every hour making sure they were okay!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
