Our First UPMI Summer July 2016

I’m speechless; there are no words to describe how grateful I am that we get to have these experiences AND the friends that make them possible!! So here are about HALF of my pictures… More to come!

We have had the most fun summer!!

Last year, this month was probably the most stressful and just FULL of our family life, prepping for this trip! This year, this month has been relaxing, beautiful, creative, delicious, and delightful!! Full of beauty, enjoying the simple things from a campfire under a host of stars, to the kids together building a tipi village; from lighthouses to waterfalls… To beaches and boating on my new favorite Lake Superior!! Thank you Jill and Dustin for being great friends!!

Big Springs; water so clear you can see these giant springs feeding the Indian Lake.
