Michigan Summers...


It has been 6 years since we've been in Michigan in the summer and we forgot how much we love it! We have been enjoying family, the beach, grilling, fireworks, late nights...so much fun. The kids are exhausted as for us in Mozambique 10pm is like midnight and the kids are usually in bed sleeping by 8pm. Here is doesn't get dark until 10pm. Jurnee just falls asleep the second she gets in the car and takes about 3 mini naps a day. Traeger turned 13 on July 9th and we officially have a teenager in the house! Here are a few pictures of our summer adventures with family...



 My brother has an incredible fireworks display for us all to enjoy on Traeger's 13th birthday. It was so much fun.


 Stephen and Traeger shooting off some fireworks.



Can't believe he is 13 now.





Loving watermelon and all the time with all their cousins...


And swimming...


Kallen and Brielle, best buddies.

 We also made a quick trip to sleeping bear. Tim and I haven't been there in years and this was the kids first time.



Traeger and Grant got to celebrate turning 13 together. They are only 3 days apart.

And stick forts...


Eating smores for the first time that they can remember...

These girls, my nieces, Megan and Leah, used to ride around on my back and I would spend hours playing house and letting them do my hair, now we've come full circle and my girls are riding on their backs and following them around...love these girls and how they love my girls!
