This is the first vacation that my whole family is going on in like forever. I have such mixed feelings about it. We are going to one of our most favorite places in the world....the UP. Dave and I went to the UP often - usually at least every other year. We would always talk about other places - but many times just would end up going there because we just loved it.
We've never been up there in June - so I'm a tad worried about the weather up there. So far the forecast is for around 73 the day we get there. That isn't horrible - but with that being the high, the evenings will be fairly chilly. It should be good weather for hiking though. We are going to take the warmest expected day to rent 2 pontoons and go see Pictures Rocks from the water. I am very excited about that.
I've always loved our vacations to the UP because they've always been so relaxing. We didn't used to have any cell service up there - so that was nice. We usually just hike and chill out. I love that about being up there.
I'm a little worried with so many kids that there won't be enough to occupy the kids. I know my kids are perfectly happy with the trails. I just worry about Keagan - my daredevil kid that might get too close to the edge. Dave was always one step ahead of him. It is very hard for me to think like him - I'm so cautious. The only thing that gets me in trouble is my clumsiness. Hopefully I can get Keagan to realize that he needs to listen and not get too crazy or he'll scare Mommy too much. They both think it is funny to do that to me - but I can't handle them both doing that.
I'm really hoping that Malea will be totally with us on this trip. I don't want her reading the whole time and want her to cherish this time together. There are a few other worries of mine that I'm hoping I can get over or deal with.
Lots of packing and shopping going on this week! Kids last day of school is on Wednesday - they are so excited!
I am a wife and mother of 2. I have many different interests - baking, home renovations, music, education ;)
