Road Trip

Last weekend we had the opportunity to travel north to Benzie County. This was primarily for Jeremy's job. The DJ's are partnering with Pure Michigan and along with that comes the chance to travel to fun destinations all over Michigan. (Check out www.JQ99.com for more travel experiences.)

Our day started early and ended late. We were able to do all the fun things we enjoy doing....shopping in downtown Frankfurt, visiting the Point Betsie Lighthouse, some general sightseeing as well as dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, The Roadhouse. All in all it was a fun day as well as a learning experience, since Emerson's schedule was thrown for a loop. We are looking forward to another travel experience this weekend!

When we arrived, we checked in with the Visitor's Center and received a couple coupons to aid in our days adventure.

Visiting the Point Betsie Lighthouse.

After visiting the Gwen Frostic Gallery (something I had never done before!), we were able to get a close-up of this little guy who was running around the gallery.

Since we were in and out of the car all day, we stopped for awhile at a park in Elberta to give Emerson some time to play.

A cool family shot. I like this one because it looks like Emerson is holding the camera and taking the picture!
Pure Michigan. It's days like this one that remind me why I love to live here!

I am sure you hear it all of the time but Emerson is such a beautiful little girl. What a sweetheart!
