Michigan travels (part 1)

Here's a collection of pics from our visit to Michigan this past weekend. We did a combo trip to visit our former Lafayette neighbors (and friends!) in Traverse City, and we stopped on the way up and back in Grand Haven to see some rugby friends of mine from college.
These pics are from Sleeping Bear Dunes where we visited one evening at sunset.
Here's the old crew from next door on Park Avenue: Ben and Janet with sons Micah (left) and Isaac (right).
And the whole gang!

Ellie did really great during the travel time. We tried to time most driving during her naptimes, and she took advantage of it :)
We also hit a fabulous apple orchard while in Traverse City. It had a petting zoo, hayrides, a yummy restaurant and, of course, tons of apples for picking. Ellie ate 4 apples while we were there!

And here are a few pictures of Ellie and the boys playing back at the Whipple homestead. Even though she's been having trouble with sharing recently, Ellie did pretty good while surrounded by Isaac and Micah's toys. She especially loved their tool set and trains... we may have to get her some.
