Mid summer Vacation

A couple weeks ago we headed up north to Elk Rapids, MI to spend a few days with my side of the family. To sum up, it was Great! Naturally we took a ton of pictures so i thought I'd post several to highlight the trip. From the top.

This is where we spent a lot of time...the East arm of the Grand Traverse Bay, some of the nicest water in the State. (in my opinion)

Grey hit the beach with his bucket and shovel and was happy all afternoon!
Here he is concentrating on his sand sculpture...Apparently i used to (still do) stick my toungue out like that when im in focus. weird. sorry grey, you go that from me.

Gibbs men relaxing.

Grey given us sas at dinner. those eyes!

Later that night Grandpa gave Grey a boat ride. Grey was into it!

Then he took the wheel...and naturally turned the wheel all the way to one side. My dad was a good sport and let him drive us in circles for a while, Grey loved it.
The seas were calm that day.

later that evening...these 2 little rugrats became best buds, (not that they weren't already) We'll mainly Grey was obsessed with his cousin Evan, but it sure was entertaining seeing the 2 of them "play" Love em both so much!

Grey and Evan playing on the beach.

Here's my Dad giving Grey a ride on the "little yellow boat" Looks like a fun time...
...Oh wait, maybe not...

This was a horrible idea and a short lived trip. Maybe another time Greyson.

The boys taking naps after a long afternoon of playing.

This one's just silly.

There was great park right down the road, Grey hit the swing and turtle.

But the weekend was not all play, here's Grey walking on the sidewalk!

The last day the whole family rented a pontoon and hit Torch Lake. Now this is the most beautiful lake i've ever seen.

Yes, thats the color of the water, no photoshop, its that blue.

So yes, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back next summer.

love to all,

Andy, Leigh, Grey.
