Well, for starters, try to have an aunt and uncle who like to take you on adventures and encourage you to do things that might otherwise scare you. And then, do those things with said aunt and uncle. Anyone you love will do, in a pinch 😉
If you read/looked at my last blog post, then you know that Tony and I had our nephews (the ones that belong to my sister) up for a long weekend. I already showed you adventures from our first day of fun, playing in Elk Rapids. I thought about skipping a second post about their trip, but we had too much fun. If a picture’s worth a thousand words, a novella follows. I’ll keep the words brief, since I utterly failed to do so with the pictures.
In approximate chronological order are shots from our various outings. In addition to beach and river time in Elk Rapids, we went kayaking on Torch Lake, played skip ball in the lake, jumped off of the dock into Torch, went snorkeling at the Torch Lake fish cribs, ran multiple laps up and down the Dune Climb, jumped off of little bluffs into the sand dunes, rip-sticked on the new trail at the Sleeping Bear Dunes, and played on the beach an in the waves at Glen Haven. If I didn’t have all these activities at my fingertips, I might be a tad envious. As it is, I am so glad I can share it with those I love.
