A few photos from our first big camping trip to Northern Wisconsin and Duluth, MN...
I love these family bikes. They always make me laugh!
Beautiful sandy beach and clear water.
I never thought we would be able to eat at a restaurant on the trip. Plans were to always cook meals in our camper. Duluth had an awesome Whole Foods. Seriously wish it was located by our house! Anyway, we saw in a brochure about Tavern on the Hill and how they focus on healthy food and try to source their products from the nearby area. We checked out their menu online and thought they might have something Kaelyn and I could actually eat. To be honest I was nervous, but David was excited to give it a try. Our poor waitress had to go back and forth to the kitchen like 20 times with questions, but we were finally able to get a meal that worked for us. Yay and thank God! Here's what we had...
Turkey burger topped with caramelized onions and sprouts. Our side was smashed cauliflower. K and I both liked it! Great place to check out if you are in the Duluth area.
A couple Sundays ago the piano player at our church was telling a story about Jesus being like our lighthouse and what a rocky journey we may have to get to Him. I immediately thought of our trip and the path we had to take to get to the lighthouse. Walking on these jagged rocks of varying sizes was not so easy, it took quite a bit of time but oh how it related to our own life journey. Our stories are all so different but we are all given obstacles to overcome, to push through and hopefully through the journey we come closer to Christ who gives us light in our darkness. He's our hope and source of good things to come. ♥
We saw a number of things. We toured the William Irvin ship which was HUGE! Kaelyn did not like going to the top deck since it was so high up but atleast she enjoyed pretending to steer the ship once she was up there. Another highlight was the Heritage and Arts Center. It had something for everyone to enjoy... history, art show, kid play area, amazing train museum, detailed wood carved furniture plus more. Lake Superior area was a hard place to leave. We debated about taking another day to see more sights in the area but decided we would just have to go back when we had more time to explore. We are so thankful for the family adventure we had and look forward to seeing new sights next summer.
Hi! Thank you for stopping by! I'm a small town girl living in the Midwest. Although I would love to live by the ocean, I've learned to appreciate the beauty around me. No matter where I live, creating is a big part of my life. I am a graphic designer & artist who also enjoys renovating houses with my husband and watching my delightful daughter grow. I have been fighting Graves Disease, Celiac Disease, Leaky Gut, Candida, food allergies/intolerances and secondary infertility but have learned a lot through the journey and it has brought me closer to Christ. With His help I will overcome sickness and be healed. I am so thankful for the blessings God has given me and my family! You are welcome to follow along to see where our journey goes from here.
