What can I say about my four-day weekend in Michigan?
To celebrate Dana's birthday, we gathered at her parent's cabin right on the lake. We laughed a lot, ate a lot,
explored a lot (Mackinac Island among other places) and had one of the all-time best adventures I've ever experienced!

|Dana makes a new friend on the island||We're sorry to have to leave, but the ton of fudge should sustain us!|
|Auntie Dana and her niece Lexi take a rest||Aren't they just the cutest?|
|Lexi and Tallie share a quiet moment||The view of the sunset from Dana's parent's back deck is stunning...|
|Isn't it?||I don't know...that bear looks like he's getting a bit frisky!|
|You know, Dana seems to have an odd attraction to bears!||Out of all of her gifts, I think Dana liked this one the best!!|
|Susan loves her birthday gift from Dana - the Coin Man Trilogy in paperback. Wow! "It's like a real book!" :)||In fact, she was so overwhelmed, she had to take a nap afterwards!|
|Dana, Lexi and Susan are too cute for words||Susan in her throne!|
