Alright, so we've just returned home from our annual vacation to Gull Lake. 4 years in a row now, and we've already booked our reservation for next year! What is Gull Lake? A beautiful spring fed lake, complete with gorgeous sunsets and sunrises (so I'm told on the sunrises), where we rent a house for a week with 8 other families, mostly friends from our kids' school. But the whole purpose behind Gull Lake is Gull Lake Ministries. "Vacation with a Purpose". A non-denominational family church camp, located in Michigan, and you have to check it out! The weekly schedule includes family huddle, break out sessions for kids in their age groups ranging from infants through senior high school, incredible teaching for the adults, family fun theme nights like "Funtastic Olympics", great food, great water time, incredible time for walks, bike riding, and a recreation field that includes a zip line, screamer swing, climbing wall and pamper pole. And yes, I've done all of those activities except the pamper pole! Its only a 4 1/2 hour drive from our house, and its a great time to regroup with your family. Our kids INSIST on this vacation every year. They LOVE it! Check out our pictures and check out GullLake Ministries at  OH - I O !!! We were after all in Michigan, so we have to leave some OSU Buckeyes trails!
