THE HELGESONS | THE HOLIDAYS IN CEDARBURG, WISCONSIN

THE HELGESONS | THE HOLIDAYS IN CEDARBURG, WISCONSIN

Cole got a major surprise when we stepped onto the trolley and he was greeted by Mrs. Claus and she invited him to sit and chat with her while we rode around town a few times. Later we stopped into Santa’s Workshop where Santa was put back by Cole saying his big want this year was a stop sign, lol! Probably hasn’t heard that from a 5 year old before. Cole wants a stop sign for his bedroom, so everyone knows it’s his zone only. A 5 year old needing privacy, what is my life going to be when he’s 13. Please send help! We had a good long conversation with Santa, snapped a Norman Rockwell esk photo and headed back home with good cheer in our hearts and being belted out of our lungs to holiday tunes all the way home.

THE HELGESONS | SUMMER VACATION | MACKINAC ISLAND, MICHIGAN - DAY II

The second day of vacation was our first day spent on Mackinac Island. We woke up in our vintage strip motel on the beach with the sun beaming down on the water. We quickly headed to the docks to board the ferry over to the Island and arrived hungry.
