Our five day get away!

What a wonderful time we had.  We went to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and took Amber with us.  She hadn't been there in quite a few years when she traveled with us where ever we went!  She is still a good rider and conversationalist and at 16 can get very moody!  This trip we didn't see much of that moodiness or the teenage attitude that can rise up to cause people around her grief.

We took her to many of the same places we did when she was 3. She didn't remember them of course but thought the sights were lovely and beautiful.  She was quite impressed with Lake Superior, however she didn't care much for it's temperature!  She took lots of pictures, got a hooded sweatshirt from Mackinaw City, sampled some fudge and got a ring at the gift shop at the top of Brock Mt.

We throughly enjoyed her company and were glad she was able to spend time with us.  Since she moved back with her mother when she was 5 and has visited on weekends and summer, spring and Christmas breaks we haven't seen her as much as we would like.  Of course, I'm sure our son, her Daddy, feels the same way.
