Good Monday Morning! Moving a little slower this morning, adjusting to not being on vacation. It was really great to have a little time off!
This morning, I thought I would post the remainder of the vacation photos- once again, there are quite a few here!

We started out the next morning to pick up a few things (coffee!) in the nearby little town of Hessel. They have a cute little marina with a gazebo that the girls really liked

We found our coffee and muffins for the girls at the cute little local grocery store

And the girls were really curious as to what these contraptions were LOL!

Then we made our way down the road to a park in Cedarville for the girls to run around for a bit.
Robyn enjoyed picking some flowers

Vanessa loved this little climber thing

Then we moved on down the road, a little past Cedarville to a roadside beach on Lake Huron for our picnic lunch.

We hung out and played here for quite awhile!

Vanessa was proud of writing her name in the sand!

A cute one of Matt and I

After we were all tired, we went back to the cabin for a bit and got ready to go to the swimming beach. I can't say how much i love this beach- it's nestled in the Hiawatha National Forest on Lake Huron, it's really close to the cabin, and it's like being on your very own private beach! We have rarely seen anybody else there when we are!
Robyn started out by burying herself in the sand :)

Brrrrr! That water is C-O-L-D- nothing like swimming in recently melted ice- ha!

I really love this one too...something about catching glimpses of my girls from behind I guess...

Kid surfing!

Vanessa was enjoying checking out flowers and stuff

Just look at that big belly!

The water was really high this year, so we had less sandy beach to play in, but the girls still enjoyed it!

Then they got tired and we headed on back to the cabin

The next morning, the girls are ready for more adventure!

We checked out a nearby nature preserve

Made silly faces while eating lunch at the cabin

And danced on their stage

Then, finally, we went into St Ignace to play and eat
Vanessa was in a mood for posing for pictures!

Robyn likes to give big hugs

And we played at a beach again- that is Mackinac Island you see out there

I sat here for awhile and watched the girls play and read a little bit

Then we went out to eat. For some reason, Robyn thinks she has to open her mouth as wide as possible when she sees the camera pointing at her LOL

And then we had ice cream

And here is the last one!

Whew! That was a serious amount of photographs- if you made it this far, thanks for looking!
