Have Twins, Will Travel

Last Hurrah

St Clair Shores, Michigan – Our annual trip to Michigan is always the last hurrah of summer. For two weeks, we escape from the city and bask in the attentions of the grandparents.

There’s always a trip to the Henry Ford. We usually visit Belle Isle or (this year) the Dequindre Cut to see how downtown Detroit is coming back to life.

Mostly, however, we do the same things I used to do when I was a kid. Ride our bikes to the library. Go to the city pool. And of course, swim in Lake St Clair. Best summer place ever. #PureMichigan
