Beautiful June Day

It was a beautiful day in Onaway Saturday and we enjoyed visiting with Luke and Eve.


We enjoyed watching the sunset at Au Sable Scenic River Highbanks Overlook Tuesday evening.


We had fun hiking around the Smoky Mountains in spite of rainy weather and enjoyed some beautiful scenery as we traveled.

Indiana Trip

We had a great time visiting with family at Taylor and Lydia’s.

Onaway State Park

We had fun camping at Onaway State Park for a couple of days. It was our first time camping there and we had a campsite right on the water. I enjoyed watching the sunrises and sunsets over beautiful Black Lake.

Sleeper State Park

One of my first camping trips as a little girl was to Sleeper State Park. I came across an old news clipping of my parents, my brother Tim and me about our camping trip to Sleeper State Park sometime in the late 1960s. I loved camping with my parents, brothers and sister and have enjoyed many wonderful camping trips with Kevin and our children. Last week Kevin and I camped at the same park with our sons, Nicholas, Zachary and Josiah. We had lots of fun and made some great memories. We enjoyed the water, scenery, biking, walking and campfires. My favorite part of camping at Sleeper was the joy of watching both sunrises and sunsets over the beautiful Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron located in Michigan’s thumb.


The caption under this photo reads – “The John Worth family of Quincy found Sleeper State Park a pleasant refuge from the busy windup of the school year at Quincy public schools where Mr. Worth is principal. Quincy is located close to the Indiana state line and the choice between Indiana’s state parks and those here in Michigan was a difficult one.”

End of Vacation

We had a great time visiting with Taylor and Lydia over the weekend. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed some swimming and a walk to the park as the sun was setting.

Hog Island

We had a great time camping at Hog Island Point State Forest Campground. We had fun riding our bikes, swimming, hiking and the boys enjoyed kayaking to Hog Island. Our campsite was on northern Lake Michigan. We enjoyed the nice weather and the beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
