We just returned from a wonderful and busy weekend in northern Michigan with my whole family and it was especially fun because both my girls were able to join us; including Megan all the way from Pittsburgh. We cramed a lot of activity into very little time, but managed to shop, jet ski, beach walk and much more.
I have lots of photos to share, but wanted to first share how much I enjoyed seeing my daughters spending time together. It is obvious that they miss each other and I kept finding them side by side, chattering away all weekend. When you have an empty nest with children all grown up, family vacations become difficult. But this weekend showed me more than anything before, how important it is to reconnect. Texting, phone calls and even face time are a great way to stay in touch, but it is the time spent together as a family that is the most important.
