DUNE RIDES!!!!!

Thought I would share a short video of our Dune Ride.  The man says that if he has to put his hands up, so do we.  It was so fun!  Sorry my arms got tired and I lowered the camera.  But, you get the point!

Now on to packing!

STAYCATION CONTINUED!!!!!

Before we headed home, we stopped in Saugatuck, MI.  We went on the dune buggy rides and had lunch at Pumpernickel.

When on a guided tour, you know you are going to hear bad jokes.  This was the first thing we saw when we got there...



Getting ready to ride...

Several times the truck stopped so we could climb the dunes...





This one about killed Dad...it was almost straight up!

The ride included silly signs...



The scenery was amazing...


Lake Michigan...

Tobin will like this one:  The driver asked us what this crooked tree reminded him of - OHIO STATE!  It started out straight, but then turned crooked!

We made it!

Pumpernickel!

Elyse being silly...






Beautiful gardens!
After lunch, we walked around the town (to Zachary's chagrin).  I found an amazing store with every kitchen item you would want to buy.  I could spend days in there dreaming of a well-run kitchen.

STAYCATION 3!!!!!

Today we hit the zoo, the huge tire downtown, L & L's house, and SONIC (sorry, Dan-O).












Not footsies, but seat-belties...

Today found us at the John Ball Park Zoo, picnic lunch, L & L's to drop off their things, and McD's for a drink.


Nessie...
Mr. Bear...

Do you remember this picture a few years ago?



She just stared at us and rubbed her hands/paws together.
Measure twice, cut once - yeah, right.



Two worn out kids on a cool bench...
Read the sentences on the bench in the next few pictures.





 These next few pictures are taken from the inside of the "Funicular."  It went so slow, but it was fun.






We found the giant tire in downtown Grand Rapids...
We kicked some kids off so we could get a picture...
We ended the day with drinks from McD's.  Of course, they were out of the blueberry/pomegranate smoothies.  Every. Time.
