Family Traditions

This weekend, my family - and about 60,000 other people - walked across the Mackinac Bridge.

We've been doing this every Labor Day for as long as we can remember. It's the only day all year that they allow foot traffic on the 5 1/2 mile long suspension bridge between the upper and lower peninsulas - and it's just really cool.

This year was extra special because it marked the 50th Anniversary of the bridge's opening. And also, even better than that, it was the first year that Bryce got to be a part of the tradition.

And even though there was an INSANE amount of people this year and the food service seemed to be way too slow everywhere we went and my left ear ended up getting really sun-burnt on the walk (who thinks to put sunscreen on their ear? seriously), it was a really great time.

Sunscreen on the ear is a very important thing to remember.. Honey alaways burns his..
