The “Happy Birthday” Club
We ended Summer with a camping trip to Lake Michigan with our good friends the Richardsons. It was so beautiful….as you can see, (none of these pictures have been edited/enhanced in any way), the weather was impeccable, and we had a great time. Here are a bunch (as in a plethora, extreme amount, great quantity)of random photos, in no particular order….
Love this picture of Gracie’s anticipation..
Some pre-surf land training..
These kids are alright..
Going up the dunes..(hard…really hard for me but the view from the top was totally worth it..apart from the gorgeous lake, you can see the Chicago skyline!)
We decided to revisit our methods of disciplining pre-teens. We found it effective.
of course the soccer ball made an appearance…know your crowd!

Genuinely sweet moment..I find evenings at Lake Michigan so incredibly peaceful, idyllic and gorgeous. My zen place.
And some spectacular sunsets..seriously, straight out of the camera..
S’mores, spooky stories (and most embarrassing moments aka: blackmail fodder ;)
Lots of yummy food…and naps on the beach. Ahhhh….when can we go back?
what should have been a lovely family photo (demon eyes)…..
My charming children…
