Matt and I had the incredibly fun privilege of spending five days in Michigan kid-less (they were well taken care of by Grandma!) a couple weeks ago. Last Spring, we applied, and were selected for, a trip that the Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee sponsors for recipients to experience another state’s agriculture. And experience we did! I’ll write more about that in another post, but we came back refreshed, excited and inspired by the opportunities that are in ag.

We had the last day and a half to ourselves, so we drove up the Northwest coast, through the ‘Tunnel of Trees’ to Mackinaw. Having unpressured time to ourselves was awesome to be able to reconnect. Sometimes the dishes and tired kids and to do lists make us forget how to have fun with each other.

Here are a few goofy outtakes while trying the master my mother-in-law’s camera she so graciously loaned two photography novices, one who thinks an iPhone is pretty high tech.

I have to admit, I kinda, a tiny bit, hope heaven has lots of ‘coffee drinking, near the water sitting’ time.
