We crammed A LOT into our vacation to Marquette. We arrived in Marquette on Thursday, July 5th and left that Sunday, July 8th. We spent the beginning of the week relaxing and doing a whole lot of NOTHING so we felt refreshed and ready to be extra busy during the second part of our vacation! I took MANY pictures but tried to pick out a few to summarize our visit!

We quickly found our way to Lake Superior to dip our toes in the cool water!

So happy to be HOME!
The sights of Marquette never get old!
Ben and I tried to visit all our favorite locations: Donckers, Border Grill, Marquette Food Co-Op, NMU, Lil’ Presque, Sugarloaf, Presque Isle, etc.
We made multiple trips to Presque Isle!
We also visited the church we were married in and celebrated 2 years of wedded bliss!
Our pals, Elizabeth and Taylor got married! The boys had a pre-wedding huddle!
I thee wed!
YOU DID IT!!
There was a slight boat malfunction that was corrected with help from some wedding guests. (of course Ben helped too!)
The BEST guest “book.” I seriously love this idea!
My old resident, Parker! He was one of my feisty kids when I was a Resident Adviser. Gave me some trouble but turned out alright… 🙂
Congrats Elizabeth and Taylor!
Their first day as husband and wife was spent rock climbing, cliff jumping and hiking!
Ben and I left the group for a bit and found “our tree.” The photographers took photos here on our wedding day. We have stopped at this tree twice since we left Marquette.
Two days after the wedding we all got together at the newlywed’s home to eat reception leftovers and to play a game. Ben made salsa to contribute to the lunch.
On our hikes Ben and I found some blueberries! YUM!
Ben and I went for one last hike before we left Marquette. Right before we left we hiked Sugarloaf Mountain.
Honestly for how busy the trip was, it was PERFECT! We did just about everything we wanted to do and accomplished what we set out to do – celebrate with our dear friends. And we did just that!
