I heart long weekends....

September 7, 2010

I love long weekends, don't you? On Saturday we did some shopping and picked up the husband some new shirts and ties. Then we headed on over to my sister-in-law, Erin's house to visit and see my in-laws. Saturday evening we attended a surprise birthday party...but it was so cold (we went from 90 degree weather to 60s in just days) I totally forgot to take pictures!

On Sunday we headed out to Saugatuck with our friends Geori and Will, and Joel and Amy. Saugatuck is a really pretty fun town in Michigan that is right by the water. They have tons of restaurants and cute little shops. We did some shopping and had dinner and drinks. While we were eating this grandpa-aged guy pulled up in this:

It was like and old man's motorcycle complete with three wheels and a steering wheel. It drew a crowd for sure.

And then some people walked by with some big birds. Of course I had to hold one.

Birds totally terrify me....but this one was okay...until he started flapping his wings!

After dinner we walked by the water and then headed out to this fun bar that is right on the water...what was it called? Red Dock maybe?

There was a big boat there.

The boys (Will, Joel, and the husband) bought cigars and took a little smoke break on the dock. Yuck. I hate cigars. But they had fun I guess.

And I have zero pictures of the girls. Geeze I had one rum punch and I couldn't think straight...so no pictures. Sorry Geori and Amy! We'll have to all get together soon...we had a great time!

After our fun day out we came home and let Wrigley have a play date with Rye, the dog across the street. They were crazy but had fun.

On Monday we lounged around, did a ton of laundry, grocery shopping, and gave Wrigley a bath. It was so nice to have that extra day!
I hope you had a great weekend! Why is it so hard to go back to work after having Monday off???
