Hiking, Dune Rides and Ice Cream? Yes, Please!

After the Polar Vortex of 2019, it’s time to start thinking about warmer weather and planning fun weekend getaways.

My best friend and I always plan a Girls’ Trip in May and a cottage like this one at Silver Lake is the perfect location for a relaxing weekend. The last time I was in Silver Lake with friends, we had a blast hiking, going on a dune ride, and eating ice cream for dinner!

How did school-on-the-road in Traverse City turn out?! Pretty flippin’ fantastic, actually. 

We held a snake this week, strolled in the middle of the street – on purpose, saw deer from a wagon ride (pulled by Chuckles and Hannah – the sweetest horse friends we’ve ever met), and ran through multiple sand dunes

  1. My last vacation was in December 2018, in the city of Detroit. My family and another family stayed in a fancy hotel in downtown for several days just to explore the city. It was fun, adventurous and a lot to see and do. Surprisedly cheap for a city of that size I may add.

    Our last family weekend getaway was last year when our hot water heater died on us so we took the family to the Shack. It was nice to hang out with our kids and be disconnected from the internet for awhile.
