MIchigan was WONDERFUL!

We had a wonderful time in Michigan! It was such a quiet and relaxing weekend. We rode bikes, drank coffee and read on the 100ft long front porch, and we walked along the beach. Most of all, we just enjoyed being together. The beach was beautiful!

We went into New Buffalo, MI to eat dinner. We found a wonderful restaurant called the Stray Dog Bar and Grill. They have the best margaritas and peel and eat shrimp!

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn. It is a historic inn, on the shore of Lake Michigan. It had the feel of an old summer camp. There was the 100ft long porch that I already mentioned lined with rockers and swings. Inside, there is a ball room with chairs and couches that is wonderful to just sit and read, talk or even put together a jigsaw puzzle!

It was the best weekend that we have had in a really long time. I highly recommend it.

Sorry! It has been a while since I updated my blog. I have had a very busy summer. I am going to school every morning at 7:30am. That means that I leave my house around 6:30am. I then go straight to work from school. I have been getting home at the earliest around 6:30pm, sometimes much later than that. When I get home, there are dishes and laundry and homework! I am a very tired girl! I am learning lots and Spanish class is actually pretty fun. I still have another month until I am finished for the summer. Needless to say, I havn't done anything fun this summer yet. Bob and I are going to Michigan for the weekend this weekend, so I am looking forward to that. (see picture of the Lakeside Inn where we are staying) I am wishing that I had the time and money for a real vacation though. Someday!
