Vacation with Grandma Kenny

For Mother’s Day this year we gave Grandma Kenny the gift of a vacation with her granddaughters. Originally the trip was supposed to be to Chicago but a day before we left we learned that the celebration and parade for the Chicago Blackhawks winning of the Stanley Cup was to be on the Friday that we were going to be in Chicago. The last time they won and had a celebration parade 3 million people were there. That was a few million more than we could handle so we made a last minute change and decided to head north.

We left for day one of our vacation immediately following the conclusion of Mackenzie’s Princess Camp. We drove to Mackinac City, checked in to our hotel, and headed to find some dinner.

Day 2 we started off at Fort Michilimackinac. Kenzie really enjoyed looking at the sites with daddy. The thing she seemed to like best was watching the blacksmith work.

After we finished at the Fort we drove over the bridge and headed to Sault Ste Marie for the afternoon. While we were there we took a boat tour through the locks which everyone enjoyed.

Day 3 we spent on Mackinac Island. We took the carriage tour, visited the Butterfly house and shopped before heading back to Mackinaw City so Grandma and Kenzie could do Build a Bear to end the day.

Day 4, our final day of vacation we spent heading back over the bridge into St. Ignace to buy pasties before heading home. We also spent a little time at a road side park to let Kenz have a little time to run around before making the car ride home. It was a very fun weekend for all.
