To Mackinac Island & Back!

Tony and his friend Brandon decided that it would be cool to ride from our house in Vicksburg to the Mackinaw Bridge and then home again. After lots of planning and lots of help from Dad....THEY DID IT!  This is the boys on day one leaving our house at 8:30am.              
 John & his dad took turns being the chase vehicle for the boys. They carried all of there gear and would go ahead to help start getting camp set up for the night.
 3 days and 300 miles later they arrived to Mackinaw City where they took the ferry across to the Island and then road there bikes around the Island. Did some site seeing and then headed back to camp where they had the next day to rest before they started on the 300 mile trip home.

 I love these pictures here they are proud as all get out...They have reached the bridge!
This is the welcome home crew waiting for them to come around the corner. Grandma Fuller, Shenira, Livy & Karis made the boys posters and lined in the streets to welcome them home.

 Here they come down our road to lots of cheers. This was beyond words amazing!
 So happy to be home.

This is a trip that they will never forget and we are so proud of both of them.
