For us, besides swimming in the pool and soaking up some much-needed sun, we never can pass up a trip to the local go-cart track and ice cream shop.
The big place here in western Michigan is Craig’s Cruisers, and there’s one in Silver Lake – conveniently! This year they added a “zip-line”, and the kids had to try it out – although not really much of a thrill ride!
See – they are not strapped into a harness like you would expect from a zip-line – it’s more like a cable car ride.
Here they are on the ride back down – OK, did that, no need to ride it again – can we go on the go-carts now??!!
As usual, the go-carts prove to be much more fun and exciting . . .
. . . for all the kids – the young ones, and the “not-so-young” ones, too!!
After a couple of trips around the go-cart track, it’s over to the Whippy Dip for ice cream – YUM! Once everybody was cooled off, we headed to the lighthouse beach catch the sunset over Lake Michigan.
It was a beautiful evening, and LOTS of people had the same idea! While we waited for the sun to go down, the kids played in the sand,
and in the water!
Lake Michigan is still a little chilly, but considering how early in the summer it is, it’s really quite warm!!
As the sun faded, I got the boys to pose for a picture for me,
and caught a couple of nice sunset pics, too!
