Our New Toy for Our Vacation Home Up North

Back in May we purchased a 3 bedroom, 1 bath older mobile home on 10 acres in Northern Lower Michigan as our vacation home. We have been busy fixing it up since whoever owned it before us didn't take very good care of it and since we spent most of our savings purchasing the property we can't afford to replace the home. So fix it we must.

So far we've gutted most of the place and it has no running water yet so we have been bringing jugs and jugs of water with us when we go. Since there isn't any running water that also means we have to go potty on a port-a-potty, which I guess it better than going in a whole somewhere. I've mastered the art of taking a very quick bath using a washcloth and a cup of water also because there is NO WAY I'm going four days without showering. GROSS!

Anyway the kids love the place and finding all the critters (snakes, toads, chipmunks and even deer) but they were kind of bored with the whole remodeling thing so we decided to purchase a four wheeler!!

What our new toy looks like!

We haven't had the opportunity to head north and try it just yet but the boys are dying to try it out. You know what? I'm secretly right there with them. I've never been on a four wheeler before.We still need to get some helmets and go over some safety rules with them as well as obtain our safety certificates but OMG I can't wait to drive this baby!
