I woke up early this morning and logged on to the internet and checked up on my friends and their lives. Laurel and I are headed out on seven and a half hour trip to Au Train Michigan. It just hit me, we have the shortest trip! We will be meeting with Laurel’s family for a small family reunion. We started these family reunions 6 years ago, doing them every 3 years. The first time we were in northern Minnesota. This is where the Kraker Family members were born and raised. The second time we met in Colorado Spring and Estes Park. That trip had us celebrating a wedding of Laurel’s cousin Lee. This trip is half we between the family members. Laurel’s cousin Suzanne and her family live in Vermont and Laurel’s brothers and sisters live in Minnesota. So Au Train Michigan was the choice for this year’s reunion. I am looking forward to the trip. Last week Laurel and I looked up thing to do in the area and it shoud keep us busy. I remember many years ago when my family traveled thru the UP of Michigan. I remembered many miles of trees and that is what I was going to revisit. To my surprise there was many things to explore. Waterfalls to Musising Bay to Lake Superior. I am looking forward to the trip and hope and post a recap of the week.
