Our anniversary getaway

Eric's wonderful aunt Kerry offered to let us stay in her condo for our 5th anniversary excursion to northern Michigan. We are thankful to her for her generosity, and also to Eric's parents and siblings for caring for our kids while we were gone for a couple days.

Eric and I had so much fun exploring new places, and the weather was beautiful. We visited some neat tourist areas, went for an 18-mile bike ride along Lake Michigan, ate delicious food (including going out for breakfast--how fun is that?!), and enjoyed the novelty of uninterrupted conversation!
Here are a couple other photos from our time away:

Happy anniversary, Eric. Love you!
