every couple weeks my mom needs a little bit of a ledger fix! living an hour and a half away can be a bit daunting for us with ledger not getting to see his papa and mema enough. so we have gotten into the habit of meeting up with my parents at the half way point between south bend and grand rapids. its only about 45 minutes to an hour for both of us, so it works pretty good. its a beautiful little lakeside town, but the problem is that in the winter there's not much of anything to do. its amazing in the summer, but when its cold they don't really have much there. so, we usually end up meeting them at the big boy restaurant off the highway! we dont mind too much- the food is good and they are pretty understanding about having a loud and excited child there eating!
