"Best vacation ever," is how my daughter described it.
I agree. It was also a simple vacation. We didn't drive far. And once we arrived, no car was needed. Neither were regular clothes. Swimsuits, flip flops, hats, sunscreen....that was about it. It was hot there, in the nineties, just the way we like it!
On Tuesday, my parents and my two nieces came to hang out with us at the beach.
We did take a drive up the lake one morning, for breakfast and picking at Blueberry Hills. It's one of my favorite places to eat. Word has got out on how fantastic this little place in the country is. The line stretched out the door and people were encouraged to share their tables with strangers, to make room for everyone. That was something new for me- at first a litttle awkward, but also kind of fun.
We wandered into a cute bookshop where my daughter found Kristen's book! It was one that I didn't have yet, so I was thrilled to get it.
I wasn't quite ready to leave yet, but once we picked up our sweet Genevieve, I was happy to be home.
