Vacation Update Mid Week

We are having a fabulous and relaxing time here in Northport, MI at my Michigan parents' home!
Sorry for the heavy photo dumps in my posts this week...just so much to share!
 
The triplets are enjoying sailing school and are already sailing in their own boats.


 
#4 sailing in his boat "Chuckles" 
D's #3 sailing in her boat "Claire" 
#3 sailing in his boat "Smiley"
 
After sailing on Tuesday we went over to 45 North, the winery where my BIL works.
It is located on the 45th parallel...
Take a peek at their website here
I LOVE their Peach Cremant which is a sparkling wine that tastes like fresh peaches.
They have many other fabulous wines and the vineyard is just beautiful.

My BIL also happens to be an AMAZING wedding photographer too...see his work here.
He really is gifted...he travels all over the US to do weddings, but primarily works in Michigan.
 
My sister, who is an accomplished equestrian, keeps her new horse Eli at the vineyard.

Sunday night we celebrated my dad's birthday...here are some family pics...
 
 Me and my beautiful sister L...I am a 15 years a few years older than she is.
My little brother E...he is E the fourth.
Siblings...notice the 2 inches missing off my hair...SO much better.

Hope you are enjoying your week!

Nothing like northern Michigan and beach campfires :-)
I love the wineries there - surprisingly good wine and so fun to do a wine tour!

This post REALLY makes me want to go to Michigan right now! I was just telling my husband how badly I want to go visit The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. I bet the weather is perfect this time of year!

XOXO,
