My girls are 5 and 8. We are looking for a fun family vacation somewhat close to home. Any suggestions?

Last summer my family went to cedar point and I had so much fun on the rollercoaster and their waterpark. Six flags is another great option.

Drive up Lake Michigan on the Michigan side. Lots of harbors, docks and little towns. Go in July and pick blueberries.

Black Hills in South Dakota. Historical stuff, beautiful parks, and kitschy stuff.

Also, when we visit my MIL in Michigan we usually stay about an hour away in South Haven. We always have a great time there - wonderful beaches.

I don't really make mistakes ... I create "learning opportunities"! Murphy says: The better you match the thread to the fabric, the more likely you will need to rip some stitches out! I spend more quality time with my seamripper than I like ...
Yes, I DO love fabric!!
