Fun Weekend With The Girls...

What a great weekend! We all arrived "up north" Friday evening in time for snacks and a refreshing beverage called "Summertime" that consisted of lime aide, vodka and beer. Sounds awful but tasted yummy!!

We sat and talked and watched the stars until midnight! Saturday morning we took our time getting going. I made Dutch Babies while some of the girls took a 2 hour walk! After breakfast we headed up to Sleeping Bear Dunes. I had requested a trip up there since I had never seen the Dunes before. Thankfully everyone was very accommodating and agreed it would be a good trip. We drove into the State Park and along a road with scenic overlooks along the way. We had a spectacular view of Glen Lake.

We also posed for a picture taken by a fellow tourist. His English was rough but he did a great job taking the picture!

Then we got up to the top of the Dunes. The girls were trying to talk me into going down this dune to the water

but after reading this warning I decided it probably wasn't a good idea. I wasn't sure if the paramedics could reach me down there!

From there we went into Glen Arbor for lunch. Then it was on to Leland for some shopping.

While we were going in and out of stores one of the girls discovered a Shoreline Cruise and we decided that sounded like fun.

Finally around 9:00 we decided we better head home. We spent the rest of the evening on the screened porch talking. We can sure do a lot of that. It takes time to catch up on what everyone has been up to.

View from the deck! How would you like to wake up to this every morning? At least summer mornings.

Sunday morning we packed up, changed Pam's sheets, cleaned up after ourselves and hit the road. Thankfully traffic was light and we got home around 6:30.

Great weekend!
