Vacation Picture Overload
Whew, we survived our whirlwind trip to Michigan. Saw lots of Dad's relatives and 4 out of the 5 Great Lakes. I wowed all of my relatives by telling them exactly which states we drove through on our way to Michigan. Without further ado, here are some highlights from our "carcation" to Michigan:
This is what I looked like after logging about 900 miles in the car.
Despite this crazy moment, both Oliver and I were world-class travelers. Mom and Dad can't wait to hop in the car with us for another week.
First, we drove to Gibraltar, MI to visit the Browns. Here are various pictures of Oliver and myself with our great grandparents:
After our visit to the Browns, we headed up north to visit the rest of the family. We stopped at a lighthouse along Lake Superior, where I went for a swim in my clothes.
So what if the average temperature is only 40 degrees. I found it refreshing.
And then we went home. We had a lovely trip, but I'm happy to be back in Minnesota. I was really happy to see my house after a week on the road.

Love the photos! You guys really seem to be depriving Elissa in the car though - don't you think you could get just a few MORE toys for her to entertain herself?
Love Oliver's legs sticking out the bottom of that swing!
