We are so blessed to live by what I think is one of the most beautiful bodies of water. Michigan is obviously surrounded by lakes, so we try to take advantage of our proximity to them as much as possible. For my daughter’s 14th birthday (I know–I don’t look old enough to have a 14 year old), we took two car-loads of her friends–and a third car-load of her brother’s friends–for a day of fun. Wanna see some pictures?
It was an absolutely perfect day. The weather and water temps were awesome, and the waves were just high enough for some fun. Of course, the highlight was jumping off Grand Haven’s pier. Mind you, I was beyond nervous for all these kids to be jumping in at the same time. My husband and I would count heads every time they jumped in.
Oh. And then my husband jumped in.
For those of you wondering…yes, I jumped in too. And I did not die, so that’s a bonus! Here’s a cute little video of their fun. Ever get a chance to make it to Michigan’s west coast, I highly recommend it!
