Happy Friday everybody! I started going through the vacation photos and even being very choosy about it, there are still a ton of pics, so I decided to split my photos into separate posts. Here is Part 1:

After driving all day, we were thrilled when we arrived at our motel for the night and checked out the beach front on Glen Lake (in the background, you can see the Sleeping Bear Dunes huge dune climb).

They had these fun little horse/tire swings that the 'cowgirls' loved!

Then we headed back to the lakeshore for some swimming and sand play

This is one of my very favorites

Then we had a campfire- Matt can get a fire started so well!

yummy s'mores!

Early the next morning, we started out with driving the scenic overlook drive in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. It was really foggy since it was so early. But, still fun :)
Here Robyn is overlooking a 450ft. almost straight drop to Lake Michigan. They made a point of posting a sign that the climb back up is extremely exhausting- so glad one of us didn't accidentally overstep around here!

Then off to the dune climb!

The girls quickly learned that climbing the dunes was no small task

This one is just too cute!

Although they weren't up for the hike to Lake Michigan, they really loved the dunes and played here a long time! That lake in the background is where we were swimming the day before.

Vanessa was proud of a cool rock she found buried in the dune

This place is seriously beautiful!!

The girls dug out little beds in the dunes to 'take a nap'

Hey, there I am!

After we had enough of the dunes, we took off for the cabin after eating some lunch. I always love seeing the Mackinac Bridge- almost there at this point!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the photos! I'll be back with more soon!
Have a good day
