Lawn games and more at Boyne Mt.

My son and I took a mini vacation to Boyne Mountain. Today we had fun playing ladder ball (I won), playing shuffleboard (he won), tossing a football, playing badminton, roasting marshmallows and taking a chairlift to the top of the mountain and back. Lots of fun--and NO batteries or electronic devices required!!
