After months of planning, penny pinching and anticipation, we have reached the pot-of-gold at the end of our rainbow. On this trip we met up with our friends Jeff and Linda who were staying at a nearby Hotel just outside of Disney. We have all been to Disney before, therefore, we did not have the need to hustle through the parks trying to squeeze everything in each day. We just took a much more laid back approach. This however, still requires a lot of walking. I estimate that we must …

We are back again this year to join our friends and family at Wilson State Park in Harrison, Michigan. We all had a great time at this park last year, so we thought we would give it another go this year. The park has lots of shade trees, a nice lake, and a small beach. It is also not too far from town if you don’t feel like cooking. This year we decided to move our party down the hill to the end of the park where we could all …
