Spring Break Getaway Day 1 at Higgins Lake

We went up north to Houghton Lake for the weekend with the kids and Kyle's Sister Katy and her family. We stayed at a hotel that had a pool, water slide and lazy river. We were right on Houghton Lake. Friday night the weather was really cool, but by Saturday it started to warm up! We decided to head out and do stuff outdoors with kids for awhile on Saturday afternoon (we all needed a break from the pool).

We ended up going to the Higgins Lake State Campground for a picnic. The sun was shining and the park was empty! The kids had fun running around, checking out the lake and climbing on a fallen tree. There was also a playground. Here are some of the photos.

Look how clear the water is! We are hoping to go camping this summer at Higgins Lake!

When we drove up to the lake it almost looked like the water you would see in the Caribbean! This picture does not do it justice! It was so beautiful.

What a great time! I love Higgins lake-that's where we stay when we go to the Fireman's Memorial Festival. :-)

That looks like so much fun. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I miss camping! We used to go all the time when I was little. I need to start taking the boys!
