Thanks to Aaron’s web design skills, our family had a “free” vacation on Lake Michigan from May 10 – 19. He designed a website for this Lake Michigan vacation rental in Holland in exchange for a vacation for our family during the off season. Since we homeschool our girls, we have the benefit of taking vacations while most kids are in school. With the weather, we take what we get! This vacation was a mixture of 80-degree days, 70-degree days and 60-degree days; a couple days were rainy, but otherwise we had lots of sunshine.
We had many visitors, too! Because I didn’t get pictures of everyone who visited, I decided not to include pictures of the friends and family who came. We were certainly glad to have so much company!
Aaron and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary on May 13th. Thanks to a generous babysitter, we went out the night of the 12th and discovered my new favorite restaurant. Located in Macatawa, Michigan, it’s called “The Piper.” We ended up taking the girls a few days later, and it truly was the best food I’ve ever had.
Here are the photos of our trip. We definitely came home recharged!

Thanks for the new posting. The photos and story was great (as usual). I sure do look forward to the new postings. It’s great to see what a blessing God has created for your family.
