I am so grateful for the chance to see some of them (because they are only a few hours drive from our house).
I am thankful that we are able to share these places with our kids.
|I was trying not to be blown off of the ledge of a lighthouse while taking this photo of Star and Cuckoo on the dunes below.|
I'm thankful they can enjoy an activity we've done many times before.
|Lake Michigan on a really windy day. That water was about 50 degrees, but they were unhappy when I told them it was time to leave.|
And I'm thankful they can have fun finding new, impromptu activities.
|Everyone (except me, because I was scared to death I'd re-injure my knee.) spent a lot of time jumping off of a sand cliff. That's Turken.|
|Bryan and Buttercup's graceful landing|
|Group jump; View from the top; with the ORV area in the distance.|
I'm so thankful that we are all healthy and healed and able to do physical activities.
|Climbing mountains of sand ain't no easy thang!|
I'm thankful that we have the same sense of humor and can quote dumb, old movies.
I kid you not, Cuckoo found a comb on the dune and started doing this all on his own. The following scene immediately popped into the minds of all of us.
I am thankful that Phoenix finally got his license (I told you I'd get it into every thankful post!) and was able to drive when we went off-roading.
|This was SO MUCH FUN!!!|
A little taste of what it was like. Unfortunately, with all the jostling, it took me a while to get the video going, so I didn't get the best part of the giggling.
I am thankful for the perfect, gorgeous weather we had the entire week. After the cold, wet summer we've had, it was marvelous to bask in the sun and get lots of swimming in.
|We parked our jeeps to stop and watch the sun set.|
And with that, another successful vacation is in the blog.
Did you see anything interesting or new to you this week?
As always, you're welcome to join us in counting our thankfuls!
Have a lovely day!
