Our Summer Vacation | Canadian Lakes Michigan

We had so much fun on our 2012 summer vacation.  This was the first time we rented a cottage just to ourselves for a week.  We decided to check out to rent a cottage somewhere in Michigan.  I found a very small cluster of lakes and we found a cottage on a small, no-wake lake.  The location was great, we had a gigantic private beach just ourside our backdoor.  The kids loved playing in the sand first thing in the morning.  Then as it heated up we moved into the lake where Caleb actually learned to swim.  In the evenings the boys loved throwing bread out to the crazy fish that would swim up and practically take it from your fingers. 

I won't lie, it was super hot, we got a crazy heat wave that week, and no a/c in the cottage made it quite difficult.  We ended up leaving a few days early cause Cullen liked the lake water too much and swallowed a lot and got some tummy issues, that in combo with the no a/c made our minds up for us.

Anyway hope you enjoy some of these pictures.  We did lots of stuff on our trip, including putt putt golf, and visiting my Aunt and Uncle at their cottage about 1.5 hours south of us.  Caleb took his first ride on a jet ski and loved it (although I didn't get any pictures).
