And I'm Back

Hey, how are you all.  We are wonderful.  Well, the vacation is over, but we had a fabulous time.
Taking the train was the perfect way to get where we were going and relatively painless.
We headed to Torch Lake in northern Michigan--not the upper peninsula, but just east of Grand Traverse Bay.  Nick had a friend who let us use the family cabin (really a lake house) for the week.  The house st not 50 feet from the water, with a lawn and a sandy beach.  The water was warmish--perfect for swimming in, the sand bar out from the beach meant we could walk out 75 yards from teh beach before it got to the depth Nick and I had to swim.  They had kayaks, paddle boards, a boat we could ski behind or just take for a spin, and countless sand toys for the boys to play with.



There will be more photos, but I need to get them off the camera.
We all had a fabulous time and now it's time to get back in the groove.  School shopping, Labor Day and then Turbo heads back to school.  Fall will be upon us before we know it.  It's been a wonderful summer, but I'm looking forward to the fall.
How was your week and weekend?  Fun filled, or ho hum?  Either way, I'd like to hear about it.
