Our Trip to the UP, PART 1

Hi again! We all got back from the Upper Peninsula just a few days ago. We had a great time. I've had requests to share some pictures (unfortunately there are no drawings to go along with them). We traveled up north to the Cheboygan County Fair, and then up to Escanaba in the UP. We had never been up that far before and really enjoyed the sights (and tourist traps!). This picture was taken from our show...we played around some with the settings to get the cool effect.
While we were in Cheboygan, Sam took the kids fishing one day. They each caught a few fish (we threw them back), and had a great time. The third picture is taken from the suburban of the back of the octopus truck...which Sam was driving with white knuckles the whole 5 miles across the Mackinaw Bridge. I don't know why he was so nervous, I was the one pulling the camper.It was about a 3 hour drive to Escanaba from the bridge. The weather was wonderful, and we so wanted to join the hundreds of other cars that pulled off highway 2 to swim in Lake Michigan, but we had to get there, get the camper set up and set up the show at the fairgrounds. The fair at Escanaba was the UP State Fair, so it was huge. We had a great time there and it was a great ending to the season. Thankfully Jasmin, our babysitter, nanny, and friend, was able to join us. She worked the show so we could go on a few excursions to see the cool stuff around Escanaba. One day we went up to the Sand Point Lighthouse with the kids. That was pretty cool. This picture was taken on the stairway of the lighthouse.
