Looking Forward To...

...VACATION!!!

In just a little over 2 weeks, we are going on vacation! I am really looking forward to getting away.

Every August, Grant, his family, and I would spend a week in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, at Grant's uncle's house. We haven't been there in 3 years, and I miss it! Our vacation plans fell through last summer, and the year before we went somewhere else.

I'm really looking forward to spending time in Grosse Pointe. Uncle Scott's neighborhood is gorgeous, and he lives very close to the lake. He belongs to a private lake-front park, with a beach, pool, splash park, playground, boat dock, and picnic areas. We are going to have so much fun!

I'm going for a walk down memory lane...

Dylan and Grant on the dock in 2006. Dylan was 20 months old, and I was newly pregnant with Lexie. I spent lots of time throwing up on that vacation, and had my first ever pregnancy craving for pickles.

Here are a few from 2007. Dylan was 2 1/2 years old and Lexie was 5 1/2 months old. On that trip, Lexie started crawling everywhere!
