Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

We're home from a very fun trip. There's a lot to tell, but I'm pretty pooped. M's boat was the 7th to the island -- pretty good :> They had over a day of no-wind (bad!) and a morning of a storm (good for wind!) They got in at about 8:00 in the morning on Monday. So, we got to play on the island for two days with him, which was great.

I'll write more later, but here are the boy's favorite parts of our trip (I asked them earlier this evening):

R: Eating fudge and playing at the kids' camp (at our second hotel after leaving Mackinac)

T: The butterfly house and the fort.

R: Oh yeah, and the fort. (How could he forget the fort??? He LOVED the fort!!!)

Here's two pics to keep your eagerness at bay until I write more:

Here's R posing with some soldiers at Fort Mackinac. R could have stayed there all day long and never have gotten bored.

T had good luck getting butterflies to land on him at the Butterfly House. (R was jealous until (thank goodness!) one landed on him too. Yes, that is a real butterfly on his hand. Too cool!

I'm glad you're home and have had a great time. The pictures ARE teasers! I bet R had a fabulous time at the fort - he looks so proud standing with the soldiers. And T - who's usually kinda scared of critters - he's very brave and very patient to let the butterfly enjoy his arm as a place to rest! I love them so much . . . and you and M too! Welcome home!

I just learned something totally accidentally . . . . when you double-click on a photograph you can see it in a much larger format . . . way cool!
