first, last. // scenes from our family-of-three vacation

Besides visiting family and a trip to Colorado last summer when Jason had a conference to attend, we've managed to take only one vacation together as a family of three - and it happened last week. Except for Lorelei's difficulty with sleeping since we got back (which almost negates all the happiness - it's that bad), it was an amazing week. A few pics to share (I'll try not to go too crazy!):

If you take a trip to Door County, WI (which I highly recommend - we spent our honeymoon there!), make sure you schedule time for the following:

coffee and breakfast sandwiches at the Blue Horse Cafe
an afternoon (or morning, or all day!) at Whitefish Dunes State Park beach
cheese fries and a malt at Wilson's
if you have kids, a few hours at The Farm
window shopping at Fred Boutique and Brilliant Stranger in Fish Creek
mini-golf at Pirate's Cove
there are dozens of great restaurants, though we're partial to The Summertime's patio
and two great places to stay: Eagle Harbor Inn and the Edgewater Resort


  1. Looks like you had a great trip! That was where Matt and I took our one and only semi-vacation. It was kind of a nightmare, mixed with good memories. Reservations being cancelled, a flat tire, being at the mercy of friends who suddenly didn't really seem up for the task, but we saw great sites, enjoyed each other's company, made some art and I left some foundart behind. We are taking a camping trip with a group of friends shortly, but we often say we'd like to take another vacation up there again just the two of us.

  2. Awwww sounds like so much fun! I love exploring fun towns like that!

  3. Lorelei's dresses are soooo adorable!

  4. Lorelei's face in that first picture, and in the one with you, is priceless! If those two are any indication, she had a pretty amazing time. I hope the sleep challenges have passed!
