Robb and I had a great time last weekend getting away to Traverse City for awhile. We basically decided to go three days before and just packed a bag and took off without any plans. We just went with the flow and had a great time!
We left after Robb got home from work on Friday and stopped to eat at 'Bennigans' on the way up. (we didnt mean to wear matching colors...but I did read that the nautical theme is HOT this season!)After dinner we drove the rest of the way to Traverse City and enjoyed the beautiful sky as we drove!
The first hotel we came upon in Traverse was the Great Wolf Lodge so we checked if they had any rooms left and they did so we booked a room and and hung out in the water park the next morning. We had to check out of the room at 11 but we could stay in the water park as long as we wanted so we had to get ready in the water park bathroom when we were ready to leave! It was so funny I was laughing at myself...I must have looked like such a nut! Don't ya think?!?
So since we didn't have a plan we drove around downtown for awhile in the afternoon until we saw a bike rental shop and decided to be adventurous and rented a tandem bike! It was a blast and I am so glad we did it! I think we biked about 15 miles with a few stops for some pictures and lunch along the way..we had fried pickles...my fave! (who thinks they know where we ate?!)
After we burnt off so much energy we HAD to head to the famous 'Moomers' (voted America's best homemade ice cream by Good Morning America!) It was just as good as they say!
And we couldn't go to Traverse City without a little shopping, so hit up a small outlet mall before we found another hotel to check into for the second night. We relaxed in the room until we headed out again for the Cherry Bowl Drive-In Movie Theater...which was so much fun! Monsters vs. Aliens was the first feature and after that was Fast and Furious...it was such a great way to end or trip!
We headed for home the next morning!
