It’s not all sunshine and rainbows here on the road. • This was our site while we were hanging in the U.P. Of Michigan…..until….some crazy torrential down pours came (in the middle of the night, of course ) and we were flooded out of this site and forced to move to higher ground . • Luckily we weren’t flooded too bad until the next morning. So at least the kids got a good nights sleep. • Joseph and I, on the other hand, were awakened at 3 am by lightening and thunder that sounded like it was right outside our window! •

Getting to be a part of the Mackinac Bridge walk was one of our favorite parts of being in St. Ignace. • Every Labor Day, they shut down the 5 mile long bridge that connects mainland MI to the Upper Peninsula. Thousands of people walk from both Mackinaw City and St. Ignace across the bridge. • It was fun to be there in all the hype! And the kids walked the entire 5 miles! Well, Liam mostly did. I love getting to experience the events of the different communities we are visiting. So glad we were there over Labor Day weekend! •

* We made it to Mackinac (Mackinaw) Island before we left the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Such a cool and interesting place! * No cars allowed! So you either walk, ride your bike, or take a carriage to get around, even if you live there. And yes, people live there. So neat, right? * It just happened to be the second busiest day of the year, but the only day that would work for us. So at first I was totally overwhelmed by all the people. Can you see all the people on both of these pictures? * But after we got a little ways off the beaten path. We had an amazing time exploring the island on our bikes! The kids did amazing too. They are becoming quite the little bikers and hikers!

• Saint Ignace, MI.• • Light Houses, Ferries, and splashing around in some water.• • Saint Ignace seems to be a less busy and less populated area to get the ferry to Mackinaw Island (though we didn’t hang out on the Mackinaw City side). But we were there over Labor Day weekend and it was an extremely busy time, and we didn’t have to wait to get the ferry. • •This was near the first loading dock area for Star Line and there were some fun things to see and do while you wait, if you did have to wait though.•
