It’s been a wonderful Mother’s Day on the road. I heard from all the children at some time during the morning – Jason & Blair, Blake, and Julie. What a blessed mom I am!
We had such a wonderful visit with Ted’s cousin Jan and her husband David, who live just outside of Cincinnati in Ft. Thomas, KY. Ted and Jan had not seen each other in 31 years. They played together as children in the summers at their grandparents’ cottage on Lake Huron.
We arrived at Whitmore Lake around 5:30 this afternoon! The sun was brightly shining, the sky was blue, and it was a perfect 70 degrees. We drove out of the rain around one this afternoon. We took two VERY car-weary pups out for a long walk , then walked across the motel parking lot for our annual yellow perch dinner at Captain Joe’s Grill.
A beautiful day is forecast for tomorrow when we arrive on Mackinac Island. Maddie traveled well today, and the battery light remained on – with no problems – for over 800 miles. So I guess the glitch, whatever it is, must not be too important.
Thank you again for all the safe travel prayers. I hope everyone’s Mother’s Day has been perfect.
We should be on the Island by 2:00 Monday afternoon, if all goes as planned. So excited to start the season!
