CAMPING OR NOT
So, we hung out at a store I'd rather not mention during our attempt at camping.
Baylor and I having fun! We were literally in here for 2 hours and it stormed and poured the entire time. It was unbelievable. The lights flickered a few times and everything. It was like we drove into Indiana and there was the storm. After the unmentionable store we went to eat at Ruby Tues. ate (salad bar and broccoli cheese soup) and then it was only sprinkling so we drove into the park to attempt to walk along the beach (for Averie's sake) but it was $7 and we decided not to do that. So, with a quick stop at the GAP outlet we headed home. Our first attempt (and last this summer) to camp...uh well, not so great! But since Averie doesn't really know what camping really is...she was okay with it! Instead we headed the opposite direction Thursday to Maumee Bay State Park for the day...
Our little spot under the tree.

Grandma and Grandpa met us there.

It is very pretty there on the beach!
So, all was not lost with our little vacation (the one and only one this year!). We definitely made the best of it. We cooked out at the beach and took a nice long walk and had a great time. Averie and Baylor loved the beach and swimming and Baylor really loved the sand. I didn't get any really great pics of that, but I'm sure we'll go back. It was a nice time! That afternoon as we headed home with two exhausted (and sleeping) kids in the car we decided to head up the Ann Arbor for dinner! So we did! We ate at the Mongolian BBQ...so yummy! And walked the town and had some fat free frozen yogurt at Ben and Jerry's! It turned into a nice couple of days even though we didn't get to camp! We'll try again next year I guess...
