Eating while Traveling

Our meals on this trip were quite simple, delicious and fresh.

Lunch and supper consisted of cold beans and quinoa with a variety of vegetables and Trader Joe's turkey lunch meat.  We took some vegetables with us and then bought more at the Charlevoix Farmer's Market on Thursday and the Petoskey Farmer's Market on Friday.
For breakfast kiddos had a mixture of cereal and granola.
Matthew had dried fruit mix and quinoa for breakfast.

Snacks included peaches, tomatoes, apples, popcorn (Matthew had potato chips), and dried fruit.

We ate one time at Wendy's where each of my kiddos had a salad.

One year!

I,(Sarah/Matthew) , take you,(Matthew/Sarah) , to be my wedded (Husband/Wife) ;
and I promise and covenant, before God and these witnesses, to be
your loving and faithful (Wife/Husband) , in plenty and in want,
in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health,
as long as we both shall live.

The Lodge

During our time up north we stayed at The Lodge in Charlevoix.  We had a two room suite with one and a half bathrooms, a mini refrigerator and a balcony.  It is a quaint place to stay and felt more like a cabin than a hotel. There is even a spiral stairway inside the tower which added a unique touch to the building.

Baby Shower

Last Sunday my friend Laura hosted a wonderful baby shower for us.  I am grateful for Laura and for all my friends and family who blessed Isaac with gifts.

County Fair

My brother shared his gate passes with us, so we enjoyed time at the fair today.

A few highlights:

my children telling Vietnam Veterans thank you for serving

Matthew sharing with the Gideons his goal of handing out Bibles when he grows up

the rabbit barn

the french fries I was able to eat

avoiding the rides

that my children did not ask for anything or to go on any rides

You Are My Sunshine

While I was making a smoothie this morning Josiah  diligently worked to keep Isaac comforted by singing "You are my Sunshine" over and over.
