Kenzie is absolutely enthralled with the traditional Chinese lion dance. She wanted to play with her puppet, so I put on a YouTube video for her to get some context. Since then, we’ve been watching YouTube lion dance videos non-stop. I wish she could’ve seen the one at our wedding reception, she would’ve loved it. I can’t wait till she experiences them in person.
We bundled up the family and caught the SS Badger from Muskegon, WI across Lake Michigan to Ludington, MI. Hit Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Pentwater, Ludington, Fennville for lunch with friends, St. Joe’s for the Carousel and fountains, New Buffalo for dinner at the Stray Dog along with a concert and fireworks at the beach. Then back home to Evanston to catch the parade!
Jeff has all the pictures with Jeff in them Portage Lake was wonderful. The Kmets have been camping there for over 30 years, and it was my and Kenzie’s first time! Uncle Kevin took us out on the boat twice. So beautiful. We watched the sunset, rescued bobbers and seagull feathers, and saw water skiiers. We had site #20, they were in site #18. Grandma and Grandpa joined us on Saturday as well. Grandma handily beat Jeff and myself at cribbage, again.
