What a wonderful way to spend this insanely beautiful December 3. This weather although very welcome, I am a little nervous about this unseasonably warm weather.

We may have started the day off with a kayak and a swim, but in no way did the day end there! We soaked in all West Michigan can offer on a beautiful Spring Day.
