I had the opportunity to get out of town this week and spend a fun day away from the mundane and ordinary. Even though we were just gone for the day, we enjoyed a very nice time! My sister, two nephews & one of my nieces and her boyfriend met at our house to caravan to our destination. I had our two daughters and two of their friends in my vehicle. Four crazy teenage girls plus their favorite music equals a whole lotta laughter and fun! Man, we had a blast on the way there! See, we have this tradition of singing along to the radio or CD whenever we go somewhere...doesn't matter who can sing well or not...if ya know all the words or not...ah, none of that even counts. The point is that we're having F-U-N and making memories! The girls all crack up at me because I know most of the words to so many songs from the 80s :) (Hey, don't laugh...that was my era!)
Lake Huron in Michigan is beautiful! Cold, but beautiful!
My sweet sister did an outstanding job of packing a wonderful picnic lunch. (We both brought stuff but she really outdid herself!) These pesky guys kept trying to get our food! At one point, one of those buggers DID snatch up a snack size bag of chips from the boys! The chips scattered and so many of those seagulls were fighting for a taste :)
You can actually walk up into this lighthouse for a nominal fee. I opted to skip it this time. My sister took one of her boys while the rest of us stayed on the beach.
We drove to the Lumberman's Monument after a full day @ Lake Huron.
Ah, such crazy girls they are!
The kids and I were supposed to take an out-of-state trip this past week but it's on hold for now. Just temporarily getting out of town was nice, though.
Have any of you taken any cool vacations this summer or have you stuck pretty close to home?
Enjoy your weekend!
