The rest of our vacation...

It's a new month, so it's time for a new blog banner.

The group of items are a mix of some of my favorite vintage and reproduction summer collection. I'll be switching over my living mantle later this week to beach/vacation items and will share some additional goodies next week.


Speaking of vacations, here are a few more pictures from our week away.

We did things like...

...visit a dairy farm...

...enjoy "very fresh" ice cream...

...race go-carts and bumper boats...

...fish at a nearby inland lake...

...take long walks in the woods...

...shop at cherry stands and favorite antique barns...

..."pretend" to cattle wrestle...

...enjoy good books with best friends...

...and sneak in a few naps on the beach.

Many happy memories were made.

The shores of Lake MI are definitely magical.



XOXO

Beautiful vacation posts. The girls look like they had such a wonderful time. I really like the vintage Mackinac Island card, I have been wanting to go there for so long.

Aww, great pictures-but you still have to show off the goodies! You always make sure that memories are made-and your family will always cherish those!
Thanks for sharing!

Makes me miss the summer days when my kids were content to ride on paddle boats and visit dairy farms - you are making precious memories.
