Fun on Spring Break!

For spring break this year, we went
to Grayling and Gaylord with our
very dear friends Holly and Casey, and
their girls Adri and Ally. We had so
much fun. We went to Gaylord first,
because the the guys had to do some
shopping at Jay's! After they bought
the store out :}, we headed to see the
elk and deer pen. The kids thought this
was cool, especially Cam. They even
got to touch some of them.

Here's Cam and Casey petting
a deer. A sign says do not feed the deer,
but you could tell that they were fed
because they were very tame and
came right up looking for food.

Cam thought this was so cool!
He's in his glory here.

Olivia was a little more timid,
but eventually stuck her hand out
to pet one.

Here's Eric, Adri and Cam again.
This deer's lookin for some food!

They are lovin this!
After the elk and deer, we headed
to Grayling to stay overnight in
a hotel. What fun! They had
lots of stuff for kids to do, but most
of the time they were in the pool
and hot tub!

Here's our 2 little fish. Olivia
and Cam just love the water!
They both do really well.

Emmitt even liked it. The kiddy
pool they had was pretty cold,
so we hung out in the hot tub
quite a bit!

Isn't this picture so precious! These
girls get along so well. I know they
will be kindred friends forever, just
like their mom and I am! We are
so blessed to have such wonderful

They are hanging out in the sauna here,
and Olivia and Ally posed for a picture
on the playset. Great memories!

It looks like you had lots of fun. We may have to consider taking our girls to Jay's just to see the deer and elk sometime this summer. I am sure they would enjoy it as much as your kids did.

Also, I love the new "title" on your page! What a cute idea of taking a picture of the kids' feet to go along with that verse.
