The kids have been begging to go camping since last fall. Last weekend we headed out to the Lake (the capital L lake, as in Lake Michigan) planning to camp and play at the beach Thursday thru Saturday. Our trip got a bit of a rocky start when we showed up at the campground certain they'd have some unreserved spots, and they didn't. Luckily (and miraculously) we were able to get the last spot at the state park 10 miles north of our original destination. It was actually kind of fun to try out a new campground and beach. We stayed at Muskegon State Park.

Mitt Romney did a quick stop in our town at our favorite local bakery last week. I dragged the kids out to see him in sweltering weather and we had a fun time. It's kind of a big deal for our little town of 10,000ish people. Even though it was one of three stops in Michigan for the day, our little town's bakery got several pictures in several newspapers (including, we're told, the Wall Street Journal).
Here is Abby posing in line with a tooth-ier grin than usual. (She had lost her first tooth the day before!)

On Memorial Day, we went to the Toledo Zoo. It is about a 2 hour drive from our home and the kids had no idea where we were going until we arrived. It was awesome! I don't have many pictures (but lots of videos) to document our day, but here are a couple.
I put Hannah on the carousel and she giggled every time her horse went up. It was very cute.
Speaking of enclosures, they were beautiful (especially the hippos and the elephants). The kids' area was great! There was a "house" with a pets display with birds and guinea pigs (to hold). The kids' area also had a water play area, and areas to watch bees and leaf-cutter ants.
We'd recommend this zoo to anyone in the area and are glad that our friends D&C recommended it to us!
Here are the kids sitting in front of the otter pool.
