Michigan Summer

July 12, 2012

Summer comes eternally late for the East Coast – our school didn’t end until June 21st!

So we have packed up our home, given the key to the renters, found The Running Man an apartment in Manhattan for Mon-Thurs (yeah!  no commute!), and made the drive in the minivan to Michigan.

Since our arrival, we’ve spent most of the time in the lake.

And most of that behind the boat.

We found a new toy for the summer – welcome Big Mable!

Big Mable is really just a floating, inflatable couch.

Big Mable is super fun!

Especially for Uncle Romer.

Elder adorable is also back up on skis.  He popped up like no time had passed since last summer.  Like riding a bike, I guess.

Special merit goes to the Running Man who felt guilty that our younger adorable wouldn’t be on skis for at least another year.

So he devised this little plan…

I’m glad it was him and not me.  Our younger adorable was a bit of a bowling ball up there – I’m not sure there will be a repeat performance of this stunt.

Then it was Running Man’s turn to cut loose….

…Uncle Romer’s trick….

… and a turn for Mimi!

In case you needed further proof, Michigan is just awesome in the summer.  I’m so grateful to be here.
