Sometimes You Just Need To Get Away!

Published July 16, 2017 by Angela

The downside is; coming home. I took my 2 youngest daughters to Frankenmuth, Michigan for the weekend, and I was not happy this morning when I had to start heading back home.

We had a great time, with lots of relaxing and shopping. My girls enjoyed Zehnder’s waterpark on Saturday. I sat by the pool all day, and managed to get sunburned even with a couple applications of sunscreen.

How is my stress level, you ask? My oldest daughter, who is getting married in October, let me know as I was leaving town Friday that the bridal store where we ordered six custom bridesmaid dresses filed bankruptcy, and locked their doors.

WHAT???

We are hoping they will give us our dresses, but are now planning B & C options since plan A is frozen with a bank. My other 3 daughters are bridesmaids, and I am hoping that since I paid for these dresses on a charge card I may have some recourse.

So that’s what’s going on. Below are some pictures of Frankenmuth!

Another Day in Springfield, Illinois!

I did already make it very clear to my homeschooler that she will be doing a report and presentation on this trip for her Social Studies class. Brownie points never hurt 🙂

We saw a lot of amazing things at the Presidential Museum and Library yesterday, and did also tour the Lincoln home. Some of the things we did yesterday are below. We also visited Lincoln’s New Salem today, as well as a local zoo. That post should be up tomorrow.

We are leaving tomorrow so I have a 6-7 hour drive back home; it is also possible that absolutely nothing will get done once I make that drive!
