VACATION!

Every other summer, the Parkinson clan heads to Michigan to stay on a lake for a week. My mom's cousin has a beautiful lakehouse that we stay at. We had a blast! It was a bummer that Rich wasn't able to go. He wasn't too thrilled about me flying by myself with the 4 boys but we made it safe and sound! It is one of our favorite vacations. The kids had so much fun seeing their cousins and doing all the fun water stuff . . .

Thanks MOM for planning a fun trip and thanks MARK & RHONDA for EVERYTHING!!

Kelly! I love the pictures! It looks like you guys had so much fun. I can't believe it has already been a year since we were in Georgia. The boys are getting so big. It sure looks like everything is going good with you guys.

So much fun! I can't believe your boys are learning to ski already, that is awesome! I love the picture of you skiing ... you are smiling! I have a 'ski face', total concentration and no smiling! Your family is so cute, I love all the pictures!

This looks like a blast! What lake were you on? Michigan is good for something...the summers but definitely not the winters.
I'm trying to talk Kylan into getting a boat. I think it would be so worth it, he says I'm going to have to wait.
I'm horrible at skiing and wakeboarding so maybe you can give me some tips, you look like a pro!

Looks like so much fun! I can't believe how cute your boys are! They are adorable. I know what you mean... I flew home with my four this summer and it was work! But I was glad we did and it was a great time. Glad to see you guys are doing well!

What a fun trip! Looks like your boys weren't too fond of the big inner tube?! It's always fun to get together with family.

Hi! You have the most beautiful little family! I ran into one of your sisters here in Ut (Riverton) a few weeks ago - I recognized her right away! This looks like such a great trip with your family!

Your boys are so handsome! Ty is adorable. Looks like a great trip. You flew alone with four boys? Wow, I am so impressed. Also helps me to feel like I'll be able to fly solo after I have my third in the spring. You look great! I miss the days when you, Missy, Beckie, and Amy were still in K-ville!
