Me, my mom and my sisters took a little weekend trip up north a few weeks ago. We visited my grandparents who live up there and we did a few things that we used to do as kids. From the time I was born until about 19 my family and I would go up north for vacation every year. Things we would do included swimming in the lake at the beach house, canoeing down the AuSable River, going to the River Boat and visiting the Natural Springs. I'm pretty sure we never missed a year going up there. It created some of the greatest memories I have; so many good times.

Carley and I decided to recreate an photo of us from about 15 years ago. It brings tears to my eyes to compare the two shots. So much has changed in those years but a lot is still the same. I am so lucky to have such great sisters, and a great family.
