Americana Weekend!

We spent the 4th with family in Frankfort including a parade complete with ear splitting sirens, bells, whistles and Lookout campers marching and singing camp songs.  Other highlights included picnics, sunning on the Lake Michigan beach, Pizza and pontoon boat rides, followed by more ear splitting fireworks with 10,000 of our closest friends.

Quote of the day:  Where will we and the Namaste be July 4th, 2016?

Gratitude of the day:  A grand-kiddo sleepover on the Namaste including pancakes cooked by chef Klava and dinghy rides by captain Liam.

Camp Lookout parade entry.  Up very early for this! Everyone up early creating  this  Camp Lookout parade entry! 
Marched in the parade (read ran) for the first few blocks, then dove into the stroller.
Leonie marched in the parade (read ran) for the first few blocks, then dove headlong into the stroller.
Lake Michigan Beach time for all.

Lake Michigan Beach time for all.

Flip flop shopping anyone?

Anyone go to a theater like this as a kid?  Plymouth, Michigan for me.  Watched the Women's Soccer World Cup free with standing room only.
