The gales hit us early this year and really packed a punch on Friday. While we were building snowmen in our yard, the tourist areas on the lake really got pounded. Here's an article about our beach area along with a video of some damage.
We took our annual trip to Bayfield a couple weeks ago. Certainly a tradition.
I guess when you run and play, warmth follows. Clearly I wouldn't know.
The first time (to my knowledge) that S has made it across some monkey bars. She was very proud. That's all K does is hang, swing, pull, etc.

Apple eating on the hayride.
What do we do with all our apples? Besides snacks and lunches:
This worked well for a few seconds, until, oh wait, the driveway isn't big enough for two bikes.
Kylie teaching Sophie how to mix "cement" and fill in a driveway (shout out to Grandma Lyla!)
You can never go wrong with Zumba!
To my mind, The Great Lakes Aquarium is a great way to waste an afternoon! Kids can spend hours there, be amused, learn stuff (maybe) and it's great fun!
Stuff to look at! Maybe ducks?
Look! A caribou!

So much running!!
The always cool water stuff!
Look at these cool animals!

Best of all, a tank of fish that you can "pet"...with one finger.... as they swim by. But still, so cool! (Full disclosure, I did touch a fish and do not feel the need to do so again.)
Sophie was more of the "touch from the outside of the tank" mentality.
One even reminded me of a Myth-buster!
No, you're not seeing that wrong. Some of the fish poked noses out of the water to smell around at us.
