Maple Syrup and Grand Marais





Dress: Gap; Jacket: Kohls; Tights: Walmart; Boots: Etienne Aigner via Shoes.com; Belt: Penney's (Irish store); Ring: Charming Charlie; Gold chain bracelets: gifts; Cluster and white link bracelets: Ebayed

This was the only outfit photo I took during the trip. Please just assume I was dressed to the nines the entire time (Ha!). I didn't even wear this the whole day, just put this on for dinner one night. Here are some photos from our first vacation as a family!

We stopped in Gooseberry Falls on our way to Grand Marais. Claire loved putting her feet in the water!  The view from our condo was beautiful and the sound of waves was so relaxing. Claire got to experience her first bonfire and her first time in a swimming pool (indoor of course). We brought back the best maple syrup we've ever tasted and have thoroughly enjoyed breakfast night for dinner since. We also went to Canada one day to Fort William. Claire really liked to feel all the fur! You can see us flying on a trying out an old fashioned broom (yes Claire is grabbing on, too). We also loved taking walks along the beach and walking out to the point. I'm so glad we were able to go and I got to experience where Matt vacationed as a child. Hopefully we get to go back someday!
