Manitoulin Island

Judith and I played "cats" when we found cat tails at one of the stops along our 7.5 hour road trip. The kids did SO well, they are such great travelers!

Judith LOVED our motel room!

Rain rain go away, Judith and Gideon would like to play!

Watching a movie before bed. I always remember loving watching movies when I was on a trip with my family as a kid.

We spent a lot of time just hanging out in my grandparents' motel room. They got to play with the kids and it was a lot of fun. Especially playing hide and seek. Even Gideon would cover his eyes with his fists, "count" to 10, say "Ready or not, here I come!" and then go and find Judith and excitedly scream "Found you!" It was seriously the cutest thing ever. I wish I got it on video.

Fun Dip! Best treat/entertainment for the money. There were 2 sticks, it took them days to eat it all, and they shared wonderfully!

Our family at my cousin's wedding.

It was Gideon's first wedding.

Judith insisted that she did NOT want to get married, lol.

Judith found "sea shells!"

Gideon enjoyed lots of attention from the little girls!

Our motel was right on the shore of Lake Huron. It was beautiful.

Judith was jumping over the waves that came in. You can tell she takes gymnastics.

There were some waves that night that were almost surf-able. The sound was so soothing to my soul. I need to live by the ocean again!

There was a playground right at the shore.

Saying goodbye to my parents and grandparents.

We took the Chi-Cheemaun ferry to Tobermory.

How Gideon (and Dave) spent the entire boat ride.

Judith was SO excited for her BIG BOAT!

She made me so nervous!

Once the initial excitement wore off, we ended up sitting on that bench for about an hour while Judith cried on to my shoulder about having to leave Grandma.
