I forgot to recount our vacation weekend! We packed so much into 2 short days, that we really do feel like it was a good vacation. We camped at a cramped little dusty campsite, but it wasn’t too bad. K2 brought along his girlfriend, who got along quite well with the family. We spent the day Saturday at a lovely private beach with old friends, then grilled at their cottage for dinner + s’mores & sparklers at the campsite later.
Next morning, a deluxe breakfast out at a little diner, followed by blueberry picking (okay, now you must know we were in Michigan!)…we picked nearly 8 pounds of the most juicy blueberries you can imagine! Then we hit the farm stand, a Swiss bakery, and back towards home.
Oh wait! We had to drop the boy and his girlfriend at her grandparents’ house on another lake. At least we THOUGHT we were just dropping them off. That led to lunch, a long boat ride with tubing for the kids, and steaks on the grill for dinner. All this from people we’d just met! What great people! I guess that’s Hoosier Hospitality, huh 🙂
Downside; K2 racked his chin on the tube and we ended up spending 2 1/2 hours at the ER for an xray, ct-scan, etc. Luckily, all was fine, tho we’d thought it might actually be a cracked jaw.
We got home well after midnight *YAWN* and then up early for work the next day….I’m STILL trying to catch up with laundry, etc.
Great weekend, though. See…you don’t have to spend a lot to have a lot of fun 🙂
