July 4th Weekend in Michigan

For the past 3 years Josh and I have spent July 4th at his parent's cottage on Todd Lake. I love being at the cottage, it's always relaxing and lots of fun family time. His parents have a boat up there and I always enjoy a nice boat ride around Todd Lake, but as for swimming in Todd Lake...I'm just not a huge fan of swimming in a lake (nothing personal against Todd Lake). Last summer my brother-in-law Chris taught me how to wake board, I also enjoyed tubing around Todd Lake. So I have swam in Todd Lake, I just prefer to sit on the beach and watch my niece and nephew swim in the lake.

This is our niece Addison (3), she and Josh have been best
friends since the day she was born.

This is our nephew Holden (Addison's 1 1/2 year old brother).
After what he did in Todd Lake that day,
people wonder why I don't care to
swim in lakes.
I'm not quite sure how this picture happend,
but I'm sure glad it did. We miss these kids.
On the way back to Byron Center, MI (where his parents live), Josh spotted a hay man in the middle of a field. We weren't quite sure what he was talking about, so his father whipped the car around and drove back to find this hay man. At first I was a little uneasy about turning back, but Josh mentioned this would be a great picture to post on our new blog!!!
A little difficult to get out there, but incredibly worth it!

Another great find by Josh. And yes, I am wearing my pink John Deere t-shirt I got a couple years back from Josh's parents at a county fair.
