Girls Up North - 2011 Edition

Well, back to reality but what a magnificent week-end we had.  The Michigan weather was on it's best behavior and the company was...outstanding.

Our normal little "Up North" rental had a pipe bursting issue, so this year we stayed next door at his sister's little 6000 square foot house.  (Ha!)  Here's the house from the roadside.

And here it is from the lakeside:

Not too shabby.

Lake Michigan at it's best:

And here's the gang:

Plus the girls, who were still in the winery when the above picture was taken by a kind passing stranger:

More on the wineries and the food later.  Thanks to all my girls for making the trip.  It was a blast!

By the way, did we remember to put the big UofM magnet back on the fridge?   And did we put the scary doll back in her chair instead of facing the wall by the TV?  If we didn't, I guess they will figure out that the house was mostly full of State fans (sorry Kathy) and that we aren't doll fans either.

Love you all.


  1. The doll got put back in its chair but the U of M sticker, I don't know.
    Great fun and really nice pics Linda!!!

  2. Wow! Looks like great fun! Sorry I haven't visited in a while. I've been super busy and had a few minor surgeries, too!!!

  3. Wow! this looks fabulous! I'm sure you had a blast!

  4. How fun! You know how to live :)

  5. The U of M magnet was for sure back up. I kept getting the heebie jeebies every time I walked by on the last day.
