Vacation!

Brian and I are just back from visiting our best friends at their summer house in Northern Wisconsin. It was blissfully cool! And beautiful.

Bad weather (cold and a very nasty thunderstorm) forced our group to seek shelter in the Negaunee Fire Department. They were kind enough to let us sleep on the floor of their garage. I'll never forget it:
