kids' toys.

while we were in michigan.

the big kids and the little kids

had fun playing with their toys.

Mackinac Island

while we were in michigan.

we took a trip to mackinac island.

so the kids could expericence the island.

(but mostly so i could pick up some fudge).

we had no fun what-so-ever.

found these lovely chairs browsing through the Pottery Barn catalog.

each one sells for $249.00

they look strangely similar to the 2 chairs i bought for $10 each.

i feel like i have $478.00 to go shopping with.


(i'm sure my husband doesn't agree with my logic.)

our favorite dentist.

most people's vacations

don't include a visit to the dentist...

but our vacations do...

because when your grandpa is the best dentist in the world,

you can't wait to visit him.

all together again.

it's been quite a while...

since we were all together.

3 years to be exact.

so, of course, we had to whoop it up a little.

we never did this stuff as kids.

i'm pretty sure this would never have happened
when we were growing up.
evidently this is how my kids eat strawberries
when i don't cut the tops off for them.
