The trip was a hit! Was the long drive a success? It depends on what you determine to be a success. We had loads of fun, yes. But, there was a bit of drama along the way. The morning began with the husband changing my tire, then a crying baby that led to a crying toddler, followed by being pulled over for speeding. The police man was understanding (how could he not feel bad for me with two crying children and the gas light blaring on empty?) The car games didn’t keep my toddler occupied for too long (as I expected) but made me feel better that she wasn’t watching movies the entire car ride.

Again, if you are ever in Michigan, please be sure to take a trip to Torch Lake. It’s one of my favorite places to be!
