 Kyle took close to 900 photos, I promise not to post them all, but, I can't promise that the posts from our vacation won't be photo-heavy. Also, Michigan is beautiful. Even when stuck in a tiny-ass Chevy Spark for over nine hours (yeah that happened).  We left Monday morning after the wedding and I was not able to fall asleep the night before, so I was up at 4am. I told everyone to be over at 5 am, only Mariah was. After FINALLY getting our shit together, we left at about 7:30am. I was running on coffee and car-karaoke while everyone slept. Although we spent most of the day in the car, we stopped in Mackinaw to stretch our legs. I drove Tony Spark over the Mackinac Bridge and was beyond terrified, but, we obviously made it across without me killing us. It was pretty windy, so I drove at about 22 MPR, causing a giant-ass line behind us, but it was worth it.

Kyle also took photos while driving the car, because idiot.

When we finally checked into the campground at Porcupine Mountains, I had to put on pajamas because it was very chilly and the mosquitoes were attacking from every direction. Yes, those are David Tennant pajamas. We quickly set up our tents, managed to annoy the guy camping next to us within the first five minutes of our arrival, and get beer and firewood. We then headed down to the beach to watch the sunset on Lake Superior, it was beautiful. Minus our dumbasses.

Beers and a decent fire finished the night. Also, Kyle took no less than a million pictures of the moon. Like you do.
