foto friday: vacation

this past week we enjoyed a lovely vacation on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Last year, Kyle entered a photo contest sponsored by a local magazine and a resort and won the grand prize: 5 days at Grand Superior Lodge. Needless to say – we were totally thrilled and booked our stay for this perfect week.

the weather was exquisite, the company wonderful and the location positively perfect. We enjoyed hiking, throwing rocks into the lake (Jack), tasty meals, finding new favorite spots, visiting state parks and just being together in the beauty of one of our favorite places on Earth.

despite forgetting part of the tripod, we managed to get a couple photos of our whole family thanks to an obliging rock or stump. I loved this one of all of us in our sunglasses at Gooseberry Falls, and then I also have to share one of Jack because he’s so very adorable.

Jack’s vocabulary and speaking skills blossomed in the past week. I couldn’t get over all the things he was saying and telling us and repeating over and over again. He would say “bye-bye” to the lake whenever he had to come inside and learned all kinds of new words throughout the week. totally priceless. I think we got some of it on video to share later.

yes, it was a wonderful week! thankful to our kind God for the rest, relaxation and beautiful creation He made for us to enjoy. It was truly all a special gift.

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, five incredible kids, a sweet yellow lab, and we live in a lovely house in a small town. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee, mountains, and the North Shore of Lake Superior.
