Michigan trip

Riley working on lowering the jack for the camper.

Brody threw a fit the first time we visited the beach. This is his second time at the beach and he decided he liked it.

All of us in front of the lighthouse at South Haven, MI. Some nice fisherman offered to take a picture for us.

A "pirate" boat we saw heading out into the lake.

 Riley, Brody & Eric with a sheep at St Joseph, MI. They have a public art display every year. This year it was Barnyard at the Beach. Brody really loved all the animals painted & decorated on the sidewalks. 

Riley, Audrey & Brody at the lighthouse in St Joseph, MI.

Eric's "blue moon" ice cream in a waffle cone from Kilwin's of St Joseph. I had the turtle cheesecake ice cream. Both were okay, but we'd try a different flavor next time..... if there is a next time. The ice cream was a tad expensive!
Chocolate truffles that I bought from The Chocolate Garden. I had another two-pack that Eric and I shared while camping. It was the Lago Rosso truffles. So far we've only tried the white chocolate. Honestly, it isn't too spectacular. For more pictures of our trip, visit my facebook page.

Easter flowers

Every year I get the pleasure of seeing this on my way to work. Someone took the time to plant their Easter flowers this way. The Smiley face is before the H, but I couldn't stand back far enough to fit it all in the picture.
