The cute little town of Harrison, Michigan took all 40+ Mott's in for a week of fun and bonding this past week. We rented several houses on Budd Lake where we played games, swam, rode bikes, talked and drank some cocktails. I think that some of the Mott men were a bit apprehensive about spending a week together but I think by the end of the week most, if not everyone was pleased with how it turned out.
Our family got our own little cottage and we took all the kids. Upon arrival they all scurried throughout the house quickly to claim the bed that they would be sleeping in. There were enough beds for all of them in the upstairs loft area. David and I had the main floor with our own bedroom and a bathroom to share. A wrap around porch and an air conditioning unit rounded out the digs.
David and I took a day and road tripped to Sleeping Bear Dunes where the entire family climbed and climbed and climbed. Eamon and Liam were dissappointed when we didn't go the full 1.5 miles to the lake but after explaining to them that they would have to carry the trips back they finally understood. It is amazing how fast 3 year olds can conquer a dune. David and I had burning calves and they just kept running.
