Today, our vacation prerequisites are pretty simple: There must be a beach, good restaurants, and a place roomy enough for all. This year, we rented a lake house in Union Pier, Michigan, along Lake Michigan. It was absolute heaven. Even better, Union Pier is a relatively easy drive from Chicago where my sister and her family lives.
Swimming, fishing, reading, walks along the beach, fruit and vegetable picking, long happy hours (my brother-in-law Joe makes the best margaritas!), and, of course, ice cream. What's a vacation without large scoops of homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream? After every dinner meal?
Here are a few pics...

Do you have any vacation rituals?
