We spent a nice relaxing Labor Day weekend up in Cadillac with the family. On Friday we drove up early and spent the afternoon canoeing down the Manistee River. It was beautiful and peaceful... well, for the first half hour or so, until Jonah got sick of sitting and we had to dive across the canoe to keep him from jumping in! Besides being a little restless, he loved it.. he had alot of fun looking for turtles and helping daddy row the boat- I had it pretty easy since Jonah stole my oar for most of the trip. :) Then Jonah had a blast playing in the FREEEEZING cold river with daddy when we were done, and riding in the bus back to our car with no carseat!
We spent most of the rest of the weekend just laying on the beach, taking boat rides, swimming, daddy did some jet-skiing, and playing catch on the hill. What a perfect end to summer, though I am not ready for summer to be over! Hopefully we'll get a few more nice weekends in before the snow flies!
Chris & Emily were married in May of 2000. On November 30, 2006 we were blessed with our son, Jonah, who has brought so much joy to our lives. On October 26, 2010, our beautiful daughter, Madison, was born, and shortly after her birth she went home to be with Jesus.
Chris recently changed careers, and started at Hilliard Lyons as a financial advisor. Emily works part time as a server at Pizza Hut, and full time as a mommy to Jonah. We have also been high school youth group leaders for the past several years.
