Checking in with Mackinac IsLanD!!

Hi everyone! Ok ok so I am not in ANY of these pictures and I hope that is ok. But I wanted to share these with you all. My male pup went on a 3 dale field trip to Mackinac Island, Michigan. Due to us living in Michigan and all. This first picture is of Arch Rock. Isn't it cool. It is at the top of the Island.

This one my mommy pup Ty sitting in a field of flowers. They took it especially for her. She stayed behind since she went on this trip with my girl Ally a few years ago.

Ok this is of an old Saw case you couldn't tell by the saw and all. Nope it isn't on the island but close to it so mommy stuck it in there because she said that place rocks!! They do cool things there.

Well here it is..MACKINAC ISLAND. Isn't it spelled weird? We think so too. They have the best fudge in ALL the world and if you don't believe us you should go there or get on the net and find Ryba's fudge shop. Yum Yum. They have the best maple nut fudge! Since mom helped plan the trip for 2 years now she got over 2 pounds of fudge from the 4th grade class. NO SHE DID NOT SHARE!!! This island still uses horses and buggies. They still haven't progressed to the automobile yet. However.....they do use bicycles. The graduation class for 2012 is going to be.............1 so far. That was when my girl Ally went a few years ago so it could have changed. There is only one way on this island and one way off, yep you guessed it a Ferry. Mommy says or you can swim but I don't think my puppy legs could do it, that is a long cold swim. The Grand Hotel has yumdelious food. Our schools 4th grade class goes every year for their social studies trip. Aren't they the luckiest kids ever???
So we will end here. We hope you enjoyed our short trip to Mackinac Island with us. I am sure our other Michigan friends can tell you lots more. But we wanted to share our pups trip with all of you. This Is Willow your tour guide signing out for today!!!

Dear Willow the "Tour Guide." When you're in the 4th grade do you get to take a trip? I certainly would complain if you don't!!! Steal some of your Mawmies fudge and send it to me.... your grandmother!!!!

Hugs and Kisses,
Grandma Sherry

Grammie had a friend who used to go there every year on a vacation. Her friend loved it. Grammie still has a coffee mug that was brought back to her. Thanks for all the cool pictures.

What cool pictures - Mommy and Daddy are going up there in July (my Daddy sails in the PH to Mac race). But apparently I don't get to go - I'll have almost as much fun since I get to go to the kennel!

Love ya lots,

Your human got 2 pounds of fudge and WOULDN'T SHARE?! How could she do that?! Man, I wish I could have some...


(By the way, the word verification code has the word, "dog" in it this time! How cool and appropriate is that?!)
