Beach Bums

Our week at the beach wasn't long enough; two weeks would have been perfect. We stayed in Union Pier Michigan, a cute little beach town.

The yellow house we rented was the perfect size for our family of three. If you have a bigger family, the house across the street could work for you.

Most of the homes in the neighborhood are rented out for part of the year.

The beach was a couple blocks away and the pool was right around the corner. We swam there or played at the beach every day.

Some days we had the pool all to ourselves.

The beach is the little ones favorite place to be. She must get that from me, I spent a lot of time at the beach when I was younger.

She saw her first sunset...

And made her first s'more


I got to visit one of my favorite shops while we were there. I had a few people ask me where we got our coffee table so I thought I would show you.

The Plum Tree is owned by a sweet older man and his wife. She paints some of the beautiful furniture their son makes. They sell a lot of antiques too.

I love how it's tucked into the woods.

We will be heading back in a few weeks to visit our favorite pumpkin farm. It's become a tradition for us; this will be our 7th year. Today is a perfect seventy degrees and I'm thinking about fall my friends.
Have a fun and safe weekend!
