Every summer we rent a house for a week with Jason’s family. This is the third year that we have done this and it was another great success! This year we rented a house in Muskegon, MI. The house was on Mona Lake, very close to Lake Michigan. Jason’s parents, his oldest brother and his family and then us were in attendance this year. Lucy and her cousin are only 5 days apart and so it was fun seeing the two of them together. They don’t really get sharing yet so of course there were some tensions but the cute moments highly outweighed those.
Here are the girls at the last three Family vacations…so funny to see them change:
This house had a little beach for us to use. It was nice a shallow and sandy so the girls (and us!) could play without freezing our asses off in Lake Michigan:
I love Jason’s parents getting a week with their grandkids with nothing else to do but hold them and laugh at them:
Plus giving the kids time together as cousins makes me happy. When I was a kid we would go on a two week vacation in Michigan with my cousins and they are times that hold some of my greatest memories. I like that we can provide similar memories for our kids:
So with that we close out another year and look forward to next year. I hope that we can either do the same house, or we will find something similar but maybe closer to a town so that we can for some walks a little easier. Either way I can’t wait for another week of relaxing fun!
