March Madness…:)

4 Apr

Made Steve a brownie birthday cake this year:)

Had some fun at Firekeepers...Steve's liking Blackjack some now:)

These guys are a little crazy, but always fun:) Not sure what Steve is doing...LOL:D

Steve and I stopped by the Double J Ranch to see Kris, Mike and the boys on our way up to Traverse City on my birthday weekend...

How fun is this bar stool?! 🙂

I love this red barn on the Old Mission Pennisula up in Traverse...Steve and I had a beautiful 18 mile ride that day just checking out the sights...

...this is a neat lighthouse at the end of the road...

...we started walking out to the lake at the lighthouse...

...not sure how low the lake is all the time at this point, but we got out so far!

Looking back!

Got so many neat nature shots here! See how that ice is "floating" on the rocks...so cool!

I just had to stop and take in the beauty:)

...Steve is on the last rock you could possibly be on at this point without going under:)

We stopped at a few breweries...this is North Peak with a very cool bench! I bet my Uncle Dave could make this...Steve too...

...they had some good beer...I like the sampler display:)

This is Right Brain Brewery...this is actually a photo in the place...good conversation piece...you'd have to be there to see why.

It was unseasonably warm this trip in March and we stopped to have our picture taken...this is looking off the Holiday Inn outside bar area there in Traverse.

Steve having a good time being goofy:)

We had a rainy drive home from Traverse, but I just love this big fish statue!

We stopped at Ferris State where Steve went to school...it was fun seeing where Steve went.

Got to be part of a great fundraiser this March for Kris...the Lord is good, and so many of her friends, family and co-workers came to support her...

...Kris and her dad...

...packed house:)...

...this is lovely Lisa, one of the hardest working, sweetest person I have met who really was the backbone of this fundraiser!

Steve and Gage at my first official Spring visit to Wolf Lake Hatchery this year...Father and Son...so sweet:)

It was another day for beautiful exploring around the ponds...

...see the water snake in the bottom, left corner...always a little spooky seeing a snake swim!

Checkin' out the ol' mill at the hatchery...I love the stone!

Gage livin' on the edge with his new mohawk;) Gotta take a chance with style once in awhile...:)

We're at the Al Sabo (I think that is the spelling.) wildlife/park area about 15 minutes from our house which we had NEVER been to! I can't believe it! It is beautiful and, Pa, it has mountain biking trails!

We walked from like 10:30am to 1:00pm...beautiful, beautiful and you don't even feel like you're in Kzoo/Portage.

Garret leading the way as usual:)

Boys LOVE climbin' trees:) What boy doesn't?!

Searching for frogs, toads, snakes...

...more climbing:)

Pretty flowers...

...walking on one of the neatest water/swamp trails we've ever seen in MI and it's right in our backyard practically!

Ending our March Madness tour...we've had some fun, seen some beautiful sights, and seen the love and support of family and friends throughout this whole month!
