Thanks to both children being away at two different music camps at the same time, my husband and I got to enjoy some vacation time alone, just the two of us.
My daughter was here:
which is close to here:
I grew up going to the beach in Grand Haven. It was close enough that we could decide in the morning it would be a beach day, and off we'd go. Walking that boardwalk and pier is the stuff of teenage dreams. As an adult I like walking it because it brings back memories, and I love the lake, anyway. I don't visit Grand Haven very often any more (it's been at least 5 years since I've been there), but I was thrilled for the opportunity to spend a day there with my hubby after we dropped our daughter off at camp.
My son was at a camp near Sleeping Bear Dunes, so my husband and I had a bonus day there this year, just the two of us!
We brought our bikes and tried out the new bike trail.
My children both enjoyed their camp experiences very much, and I'm glad to have them both home again.
