Great Lakes Adventure part 5: Lake Erie

Finally, we have come to the end of our epic Great Lakes Adventure! Today, I’m going to tell you about our last stop: Lake Erie! We had such an amazing trip! I was really nervous beforehand that it would be too long, too hard, or just too stressful to camp that long with all those kids in one tent. But it turned out really well, and I’m already planning more adventures for next summer!

Great Lakes Adventure part 1: Lake Michigan

Wow, that was an amazing trip. We hit all 5 Great Lakes in 10 days, swimming in every one of them. I took probably a thousand pictures, but I’m going to break my blog posts up into 5 posts: one for each lake. Today, let’s talk about our time at our first stop: Lake Michigan! We also visited Mackinac Island during our stay at Lake Michigan. (Yes, I am aware that it’s actually in Lake Huron. But we saw it while we were at Michigan, so I’m lumping it in now. Lake Huron is later!) Lots of swimming & hiking at this lake! I think Read More
