Since it was a holiday weekend, the hotels were either full or really expensive, so we found a KOA campground to stay at. Here are our men getting our tent set up. We had a nice big lot, with room for both cars and plenty of shade.
After we got our site in order, we headed off in search of dinner. We found this great place, Katelyn and I had gone there when we were there a few years ago, called The Depot. I don't know what to say about these three in this picture. Andrew is trying for the "I'm innocent" look, which is far from true. I think Nathan was half-starved and ready to eat anything in site, and Katelyn, I don't really know. They look like three trouble-makers to me!
On Saturday we both did some separate things during the day. Nathan and Katelyn headed across the bridge and into St. Ignace. Andrew had never been to the Colonial Michilimackinaw in Mackinaw City, so we headed there.
I was told by Andrew that if I didn't take a picture of this barn my mom would be very disappointed. So, here is the barn mom!
Andrew enjoyed seeing all the weapons.
We got to see a demonstration while we were there. Those old guns are really loud!
After we got done at the fort,we grabbed some lunch and headed to the Old Mackinaw Point Lighthouse. It is a small lighthouse, only 52 steps to the top of the tower.
That night we headed down to the waterfront to watch the fireworks. They were fantastic.
We had a great weekend, filled with lots of laughter and are looking forward to doing it again!
