Today’s Walk

We don’t have much but we do have a little bit of snow on the ground here. Kristi and I walked this morning and I enjoyed the invigorating, cold air.

Happy 16th Birthday Kristi!


It didn’t last long and it didn’t accumulate but we did get some snow today.

Luke and I went walking today on some nearby roads I hadn’t previously walked. It’s sunny and in the 40s and was a pleasant morning for a walk.

Beautiful November Day

Luke walked with me this morning. It’s another beautiful day here in Northern Michigan!


We’ve been enjoying some beautiful weather this week and Taylor and his younger brothers have been busy raking leaves.

P.H. Hoeft State Park

We are on vacation this week. We would have preferred an earlier fall vacation, but October was a busy month. We stayed at the lodge at P.H. Hoeft State Park near Roger’s City. We enjoyed discovering cool looking rocks, hiking around the park, and seeing some local attractions. Our first night the stars were bright and beautiful along the shore of Lake Huron. We had a fire and made s’mores. The kids enjoyed some star tipping too. We spotted freighters on Lake Huron and some of us enjoyed a beautiful sunrise. We went to Ocqueoc Falls, 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, a local apple orchard and viewed the biggest open pit limestone quarry in the world. We had fun playing games and enjoyed lots of laughter. It was fun exploring a new part of the state we hadn’t seen yet.
