To The Lake!

This past weekend Mr. Pickle didn't have any trips planned, so I took him along on a quick trip to the lake with my family in Jackson County, MI. It was a chilly, drizzly sort of weekend, but the small relations were there, so they kept Mr. Pickle busy. In fact, the 6yr old niece had all sorts of ideas of where we should take Mr. Pickle.

To the lake! It's what we say. It's where we go. Now Mr. P knows that. 

 Golf cart rides and tasty beverages are a must at the lake. Mr. P was totally on board.

We cooked a tasty dinner outside in the pouring rain. Once done cooking the sun came out. Go figure. These were the best homemade french fries. The others did burgers... Mr. Pickle and I did tempeh sandwiches. 

He visited with Jagger and they took a little nap together.

Trucks galore at our campground! Plenty of them for Mr. P to hop in for rides.

 The playground was his big adventure for the weekend, and boy was he busy! The small relations had him in all sorts of situations.

A ride in a spaceship!

Let's not forget the teeter totter. Or as the 4yr old niece would say, the tater totter.  

 Time for an emergency trip! Better put on your fancy hat!

 More playground fun! Taking cover in this digger. It was a tight fit.

 After the rain the sun came out! Mr. P took a quick trip to the little beach and saw a palm tree! A Michigan palm tree. Who'd have thunk it.

 There are many little critters at the lake for Mr. P to say hello to. He said a fine QUACK to mama duck and her ducklings.

And a big moosey hello to this guy! 


It was a quick little fun weekend and Mr. Pickle was happy to travel along and have the kids dress him up in his little accessories.

 He's headed down south soon, but is free the last few weeks of August. Check his itinerary if you'd like to take him somewhere!! He's always up for more fun.

East Coast Adventuring

From June 22 - July 1 Mr. Pickle had the privilege of visiting a few new states! He ventured off with Michael and his wife and young son to New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Knowing Michael I'm sure it was nonstop shenanigans and secret agent type mischief, easily hid with these photographs.

Enjoying the seaside at Boston Harbor.

Sometimes a pickle just has to help a frog fish while visiting Boston Commons! And hope he doesn't get stuck on the end of a fishing hook!

Worms! Mr. Pickle was so not afraid of these sweet frogs.

Mr. P and crew had mad fun at the New England Aquarium in Boston. JELLYFISH!

False alarm time at the aquarium. As always, Mr. Pickle is looking quite dapper in his plaid scarf. (Made from fabric he got a Mood Fabric in NYC, thanks to Elizabeth.)


And... another fun trip comes to an end. He had a great time with Michael and his family and he LOVED checking off two more states on his big master checklist! WOOT!

He's got a few weeks from before his next big trip. Check out his itinerary and let me know if you wish to travel with him! 


Thank you so much for reading about Mr. Pickle's travel adventures, and a BIG thank you to those who take him along on trips. It's sweet folks like y'all that are keeping this project alive.
