An arctic freeze settled into Michigan this week suggesting that winter is here to stay for awhile.
Chris, Jane and Cam traveled north over the
Some complain about our winters, but maybe they've never walked on the ice or seen the beauty of waves frozen in mid-flow. It is an amazing sight to see on Lake Michigan!
This trip also brought a Christmas present delivery for Jane's parents- a new ottoman for extra seating in the living room. Cam thought the big rectangular box made a good fort and tested out the bench with Oma and Opa. Looks like it will be comfortable for two people and quite cozy for three...
Chris ventured down to the ice formations and it was quite a trek just walking out. It is an eerie feeling to "walk" where one normally swims.
Cam's preference on this day was to stay inside with his grandparents, picking out books to read with Oma and find games to play.
It is a reminder to us that we are indeed fortunate to have family so close and accessible.
Even on the coldest of days, family warms our soul.
