We're spending the first leg of our vacation at the family cottage in Lake City, Michigan. This home was originally owned by my grandparents and we grew up spending summers there. My uncle now owns the home and has kept family tradition alive by allowing us to spend many a weekend there. Each year, our entire family heads up to the cottage for the fourth of July - and sometimes stays to spend the week. We've been here a few days now and are enjoying ourselves as always. There's no other place on this earth that I can relax the way I do in Lake City. Yesterday, we went to the "Greatest Fourth in the North" parade. Annelise enjoyed it so much - for about 30 minutes. Then, she conked out. Papa took a video of Anne shortly after. Enjoy!
