Upper Peninsula Winter Fun

This is a photo of Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula last Thursday.
I'm not sure if I told you that Tim and I were making a quick trip down to see our daughter, and son, and their families....
As you can see, we started our visit with Emily's family.
Here everyone is playing on the ice on Lake Superior.
It was a beautiful, sunny day so we had to get outside and enjoy it!
Tim and Lambie made a I love U sign that can be read from an air plane.
Can you see it from here?
I can.
 Star and Lamb found an unusual ice formation.
It's kind of hard to see since everything is so white and bright.
But they enjoyed climbing around on it.
We also went sledding!
Tim & Starlet
There were times when the sled went on down the hill without them!
Emily and Lambert didn't seem to have a problem losing there sled as much....
By the time they reached the bottom of the hill Lambert had his toque over his face.
Smart fellow!
We had a short visit, but it was sweet, for sure.
Tomorrow I'll be back with photos from our visit to Traverse City, where our son lives with his family.
 I had to add this to my post.
My friend, Diane, at Lavender Dreams used her Watercolour app on her IPad  to make my lighthouse into a picture.
Pretty cool, right?
Wish I had one...
Thanks Diane!

  11. For me snow and fun and not to be together...But I can see your family enjoyed themselves. A great blessing. xoxo,Susie

  12. Very pretty! Looks as if you had fun. Now I must look up the meaning of Presque Isle as we have one in our state, too.

  13. Ahhh...it means "almost an island"...now I know.

  14. That is very cool, Kimberly. WE LOVE Presque Isle Park! I love the drive out that causeway to it! I didn't realize it was open in the winter though. Could you drive the whole park?

    I am so glad you got to spend some time with your family. xo Diana

  15. Looks like a lot of cold weather fun!! I could definitely see the lovely message in the snow!

  16. I love the the watercolor photo. It amazes me how a device can do so much. :-)
    Love your sledding photos.And I am happy you had time with family.

  17. Great pictures, Kimberly! It looks like you all had a great time.

  18. Kimberly,

    What a beautiful post, and to be able to be with your kids, and their kids.

    Looks like everyone had a blast, and bundled up before playing in the snow and ice.

    Oh, what beautiful pictures. I haven't been back home in over 30 years.
