Week in Michigan

With the exception of last summer we have spent at least a week up in Michigan at my parents "summer place" up on Clear Lake.  It's nothing fancy.  Just a permanently parked trailer with a very nice deck in a great setting.  Eriks attends camp for a week at Garezers, the Latvian Camp there.  We love it there and are waiting for our own trailer space to open up so that we don't have to room with my parents anymore.  Cell phones rarely work there and forget about internet.  It's a very peaceful and relaxing place to spend a week unwinding.  Eriks has a great friend also named Eriks that he has gone to camp with 3 out of the past 4 years.  They would've been together again last year if it hadn't been for Lane's adoption trip during camp.  Next year they will be together again and they can't wait.

Eriks has a 1st while we were there.  The Friday afternoon after camp was over, my uncle M who has a boat took Eriks tubing for the first time.  He is hooked.  He loved it and I loved watching him have so much fun.  Unfortunately, the silly mommy forgot her camera and has no photo proof.  I'm still kicking myself.  There's always next summer!

Here are some of the photos from our week in the woods.

Emi found a woly worm and loved it.  She loved having them crawl on her hand and up her arm.
Eriks and the woly worm climbing up his arm.  If you look back at my old blog you can find a similar photo.  It's a tradition we've done every year up there.
Her future's so bright, she's gotta wear my cousin's shades!
Singing at camp with some of the other kids and counselors.
Eriks and his friend Eriks and K.
Being silly with Eriks's sister A who is Emi's new buddy.  A is 4 months younger than Emi and they will be at camp together next summer!
Dancing in the rain.  We actually ended up stripping the kids down to their birthday suits, grabbing the shampoo and soap and giving them a shower!  They loved it!
