We're Home!



....so we went to East Harbor State Park on Lake Erie for vacation. All in all, I think we had a pretty good time. Sure, there were times where I thought I'd strangle someone, but for the most part, it was a good time. Despite the activity of the week, I got the chance to get in some much-needed relaxation. The picture of me here is at Marblehead Lighthouse State Park. The weather was unpredictable while we were there, and this day there was a storm getting ready to blow over. The water was choppy and the waves were loud. It was so very pleasant, though, and peaceful. This was probably my favorite part of the whole vacation. And it was the last day.



....You would never guess that I did a lot of cooking this vacation. I learned to cook over the campfire! It was an adventure for me. One that I actually enjoyed. We made pie iron pizzas on Monday night (thanks to Katie for lending us her pie irons and giving me the idea!) and I made silver turtles, or tin foil meals, with the twins on Wednesday night while Aaron and Collin were at Cedar Point. I enjoyed myself, but the twins didn't care much for the food.


....Among the activities were going to the beach (free of trash, thankyouverymuch), taking a ferry to South Bass Island, or Put-In-Bay, going to a Butterfly House, eating South Bend Chocolate Company chocolate (I was so very disappointed to go to Put-In-Bay Island and get chocolate that I could have snagged at Castleton Square Mall, located less than ten miles from my house!), touring a winery, walking through the one of the only caves made from a geode (another thing I found funny, since we found geodes all the time growing up in Southern Indiana), and snapping pics of everything!


.....And you might be wondering why Aaron's making the odd appearance on my blog, especially now that he's got his own? Well, eleven years ago today, on the hottest damn day of the year, we got hitched. Happy Anniversary, Aaron!
