SPRING BREAKING IN PRUDENVILLE (Left) A group of school children and their caregivers line up at the Dairy Queen in Prudenville on the first Monday of this year’s spring break.

ALL THE WAY FROM ITHACA Jackson Macklem, 6, (left) and his brother Jayden, 7, made the trip from Lakeside Resort on the West Shore of Houghton Lake with their grand­mother Ronda Peet (background) to get frozen treats in Prudenville. Peet said she and her grandchildren, all from Ithaca, were spending two days of their spring break at the resort, where the boys were enjoying the water park. “It was such a gorgeous sunny day that we had to get some ice cream,” said Peet.
