Big Glen

Last summer we didn't get out too much. Besides the fact that Isla was an infant, we had no decent weather to speak of. This summer, we are gettin' out! In fact, over the next two months, there may only be a few weekends that we actually will be in town (so please forgive prolonged blog gaps).

This weekend, we went up to Glen Lake with the crew we refer to as the "DeClOomaWiczs." A mini Taylor graduate clan that just can't stand to be apart. De=DeKornes: Mark & Heidi, Ava, Kaiya & Reese. Cl = Clark. Megan Clark (see previous post for her availability). Ooma = Yatooma. Greg & Viky (Viky's not yet a Yatooma, but we're keeping our fingers crossed). Wicz = Borowicz. No further explanation needed.

Mark's family has a place on Glen Lake with a view that is nothing short of breathtaking. Traditions include weenie roasts, tot runs, boat rides, numerous passes by Inspiration Point and Dave's homemade donuts. This year, Mark convinced most of us to compete in the M22 Challenge (details to follow in a subsequent post), which was reason enough to get to spend 3 days in Northern Michigan.

The Golden Girls
Ava is donning a custom dishrag skirt.
Kaiya, Goldilocks, happy to be the only little and big sister in the family.
Oh Baby Reese.
Nothing like a nap on an afternoon cruise.

You don't get much cuter than girls with their daddy's.
Rather than catching a fish,
Ava was trying to teach Kaiya how to fish.
You know, the old fashion way of trying to convince
fish to swim into your sand bucket.

The Athletes.
Heidi was nice enough to babysit ALL 4 children.
Dave photographed the event.
We discovered that our little island girl may be a misnomer.
She hates the water and the sand.
She prefers the dock.
Doesn't our hair look great?
Even though the weather wasn't perfect, it was still good enough to spend great time with great friends. Thanks for a great time at Glen Lake!
