As I mentioned last week, Robb and I spend the weekend in Traverse City for a little 'baby
moon.' We had a fabulous time!
We dropped the boys off by my mom shortly after noon and we were on our way!
We arrived in TC around 3:00 and checked into our hotel, we stayed at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
After unloading our bags we headed downtown for a little shopping.
We loved the Cherry Republic store! The samples served as a nice appetizer! and we found some goodies to take home too!
Had to get a souvenir for baby L on our babymoon!
After shopping we grabbed dinner at Red Mesa, a Mexican restaurant
and then headed to Moomers for ice cream
where I met up with my online friend Corinn!
It was such a joy to meet her in person!
Saturday morning we had a light breakfast in bed and then hit the road for a scenic drive through northern michigan.
It was a beautiful drive and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!
We stopped in the towns of Leland, Northport, Omena and Suttons Bay.
Lunch outside at The Cove was one of our favorite meals!
The beaches were so quite and peaceful!
Traverse city people, I learned, are baby bump obsessed! I had 6 people comment on the baby bump, where as here I've not had one comment from a stranger! Funny!
On the way back to our hotel we stopped for fudge at one of the local shops and the man working told us about the salmon harvest that was just starting, so we had to check that out too.
It was quite interesting, the salmon were huge!
For dinner that night we went to the Mackinaw Brewing Co, and enjoyed the best mushroom appetizer I've ever had and a delicious dinner too!
We had to stop for dessert downtown at the cutest little fro-yo shop ever! We couldn't resist this warm apple cobbler! Yum!
As you can see vacations are always all about the food for us! There were not enough meals in the day to try out all the different restaurants we wanted to!
Sunday morning we checked out of our hotel and grabbed breakfast at The Omelette Shoppe, again so good! And then headed for home!
Huge thanks to everyone who took great care of our adorables while we were away!
We had the best time! Can't wait to go again!
