Whoa. I keep forgetting to update and post photos.

Nic and I went to Mackinac Island the last weekend in June. We stayed overnight at Straits State Park in St. Ignace. Beautiful campground! I reserved a site right on the straits and we had a fire with the Mighty Mac glowing in the background.  Continue reading

Road Trip – Quebec City

Well, we went from Michigan to New Jersey, and then made our way up to Maine. Now we had to start heading back to Michigan and we opted to take the Northern route and go through Canada. I had always wanted to go to Quebec City. Nic had been there before when he was a tour guide, and he said it was really cool.

Road Trip – Camden, Maine

We made it to Maine! The main destination of our road trip was Maine. We kept hearing about how amazing it was from friends and Nic really wanted a fresh lobster. 😉 It was a beautiful state; reminded us a lot of the Upper Peninsula.

Road Trip – New Hampshire

If you have never been to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, make sure you go there. We had no idea what to expect when we drove up to it on the highway from Northeastern Vermont. It was the end of May and the first thing we saw when entering the highway, was a “Winter Storm Warning”. And they weren’t kidding.
