We went into Pentwater one evening for dinner. Ryan, the boys and I went to the pier for a few minutes and I got a few cute pictures of the kids. Porter enjoyed watching a loader haul sand out to the beach. Hudson was terrified of it.
Thursday we took a tour of the Little Sable Lighthouse. 130 steps on a spiral staircase. It was kind of terrifying to look over the balcony! The inside was neat, though… so old and vintage. It was a quick tour… probably took longer to walk up and down than it did to check out the view HAH! It was really foggy the day we went, so we really didn’t have much of a view. We’ll have to go back on a clearer day sometime.
Friday Lori and I took the kids Geocaching. Our trail was .4 miles and boy were we whooped! We went through a short trail in the woods, up some dunes, through fields, up more dunes, caught a glimpse of Lake Michigan, up a treacherous dune hill and finally found our Geocache. We underestimated the sun that day and it was warmer than we anticipated… so the walk home was hot, sweaty and whiny. I thought it was fun, though!
We didn’t make it to the dunes until Saturday… the busiest day. We drove the trucks out to Lake MI and also took the quads. As usual, the boys were thrilled to watch the quads and jeeps and trucks attempt Test Hill, and they loved driving all around the dunes. The excitement in their voices was priceless. We spent a few hours at the Lake while the guys drove the quads around and then we headed back to camp.
Sunday we went to Craigs Cruisers and spent way too much money on the go carts but oh gosh we all could have driven them all day! The kids absolutely love the go carts, although I’m not sure who enjoys it more- the kids or adults! We did 3 different races and had lots of laughs. The kids all said I was a cheater (all the kids except whoever was driving with me…. we won quite a bit! haha!). I get slightly competitive at go-karts!
Of course, camping wouldn’t be complete with out ice cream! We took a couple trips to the local ice cream places throughout the week 🙂 YUM!
