The west coast of Michigan is a great drive - cute little towns, lake views and lighthouses..... Head north from Grand Haven on US 31 and you find gems like Sleeping Bear Dunes - a Vink family favorite with lots of little fun spots along the way.

Next week will be road trip time... destination Grand Haven - Ruth's Retreat! It is a 683 mile trip for me coming from DC, which seems like a walk in the park compared to the 1,151 mile drive we did growing up coming from Colorado - which my parents will be doing next week. What can I say - I have some pretty awesome parents! So...look for some updates live from Ruth's Retreat coming soon!
