Michigan Family Trip [Day 8]

Today, we had plans...plans to hang out at the beach here in town and just relax.
BUT...the weather had different plans that what we were wanting.
It was COLD and super WINDY!

After about 30 minutes of trying to convince ourselves that it was really alright...and it really wasn't. Poor Jonah's eyes could hardly open because it was so windy and sandy. We decided to go back to our place. And instead of hanging around and staying inside the 'tiny' house watching TV...we chose to pack up our things and head back home. I was slightly disappointed, as I wanted to check out the Cherry Festival that was starting tomorrow morning in Traverse City. But, really, in order to "check" it out on our way out of the state, we would've probably been there half the day. It worked out alright, and we were on the road before noon.

We stopped somewhere in Illinois at a Cracker Barrel. It was time to stop. We made a decision after supper, to change the boys in their pj's and continue onward toward home! 

It wasn't all flowers and rainbows, as Jonah was seriously ready to get out of his carseat for the last several hours. And it was POURING rain the last 1 1/2 hours. But, we made it home safe and sound, around 3 am.

We had a very enjoyable vacation...with lots of snippets we'll remember for a long while!
