Grand Hotel Drench

Another famous landmark of Mackinac Island is the Grand Hotel, and our trips are never complete without taking a stroll on the front lawn.

We hit the Grand Hotel at the end, and it happened to be a very hot day, especially for Mackinac. The boys jumped at the chance to cool off in the fountain on the front lawn.

They ended up getting drenched. And I didn't even care. It was a highlight of my summer to sit back and watch them splash and have the time of their lives. What is childhood if you can't get sopping wet in a fountain every once and a while?

Nash kept referring to himself in third person; "Look at him! He's all wet!"

Since they were already soaked, my dad let Nash walk right into the lake fully clothed as well.

Blake made a few rock structures on the shore.

We soaked up (literally) our last hour on the island before heading back towards the ferry.
