July 20th, 2006 – Kendal’s 1st vacation! Well, since I have an extra week of vacation as of this year, we figured we would use it while Marnie was off as well. We drove up north to Hillman, Mi and stayed in a cottage right on the water of Fletcher's Pond. Trust me, this was no pond! 9000 acres of stump filled water. This apparently used to be an old forest that was flooded when a dam was built. The trees were obviously cut after! I found out after about 30 seconds on the water that you should not go fast in the boat! We spent a day in Alpena, Mi as well. Marnie really enjoyed the ship wreck exhibit we went to see. Apparently, Thunder Bay (Lake Huron) has more than a few boats on the bottom. As you all know, Marnie and I love to fish, so this was the perfect trip for that.

Daddy caught the big fish of the trip

Kendal yawning in the boat!

I'm sorry, Marnie caught the biggest fish! he he

O.K. she did catch a couple nice ones


Kendal taking a nap on the pontoon we rented.

Here is a link to see "Kendal's Fish Call". Too bad daddy doesn't even know when he has a fish hooked or not! Turn the volume up as she makes the sound right at the beginning in the first 10 seconds of the video.

O.K. Mike are you happy you made your Mom cry? I knew it wouldn't take long, but watching you fishing with "Kendal's fish call" as the background noise made the tears start flowing.

This web site is awesome, you did an amazing job. Keep up the good work.
Love, MOM
