Road Trip: Day 7

There are a million things to do in northern Michigan, but we tend to do the same thing every year because we love it so much. Someday I'd love to spend more than a few days up there, so we can do more. Our last day of vacation was spent canoeing on the Platte River. The river dumps into Lake Michigan, forming the coolest beach peninsula with the Lake on one side and the river on the other. The difference in water temperatures is stunning, and you can even stand where the currents meet and have one foot in cold water and the other in warm.

About 15 minutes into our canoe trip, we stopped for a picnic.

The kids all tried paddling this year.

My two favorite boys.

We take turns letting one kid tag along in a tube.

See you next year, Michigan!
