mac woods dune rides

this morning we were greeted with the sight of the lower half of a dead mouse body on the living room rug. no, i did not take a photo for the blog. it took all our strength to proclaim "GOOD kitty. GOOD kitty," while disposing of the little body, but somehow the dirty deed was accomplished. since that's the most interesting thing happening around here, i'll take you back to michigan again, to the day we went to mac woods dune rides.

this place has been at silver lake forEVER (at least since i was a kid) and although the ride is far less adventurous than i remember, it was still thrilling for the kids. they put you in these big red dune scooters then go up , down, and around the dunes by silver lake. the trip even takes you by-- and in-- lake michigan for a splash. grandma was adventurous enough to join us for the day, and even got an all new hairdo out of the experience.

i think we'll make the ride an annual summer tradition, after all, who needs a retirement fund anyway?

Everyone looks like they're having so much fun! Everytime I read one of your posts on Michigan I cannot help but think how close it is to Windsor in Ontario - we really must try to meet up next summer, Melissa, or any other time you find yourself in Michigan.

indeed we'll have to plan a meeting. wouldn't that be fun to share part of the summer? the summer after i was married i, my parents and my little brother (who was 12 at the time) went to canada-- including toronto and niagara falls. and t will be in your town in only a couple of weeks! i'm still bummed i couldn't come, but maybe next time.
