A Quick Vacation Update from Michigan

Childe Jake is enjoying his first full week of paid vacation in quite some time. Photos and a post or two will follow in the coming weeks, but for right now he remains on vacation. Here is a list of places and activities he has enjoyed thus far:
  • Quality time with nieces and nephew: including playing catch; going for breakfast; having ice cream at the mall; playing the piano; and enjoying gabfests in the living room
  • Two afternoons at Rosy Mound Natural Area on the shore of Lake Michigan
  • Tastings at three wineries: Lake Effect, Cherry Creek, and Sleeping Bear
  • Completing the Foster Planet Walk at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids
  • Delicious breakfast at Back to the Roots in Chelsea, MI, including a caramel latte that made him swoon
  • Performances at Williamston Theatre and Encore Musical Theatre
  • An annual reading of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage by Lord Byron (in progress)
Special thanks to his sister and her wonderful family for hosting him during his stay in Muskegon, Michigan!
