Our five little visitors are at their grammas house for a few days. She came and picked them up this morning. and oh is it quiet all of the sudden. Amazingly enough, we miss them already.
But, too much to do for now so it's a good thing. We are packing our bags and leaving in the morning for our trip here. I'm really confused about this place. I've heard it pronounced "MackinAW" like Mackinaw City where the "c" is .. uh...french? what would that be?... and I've heard it pronounced MackinACK. So, my number one goal when we go there is to ask someone "Where am I exactly?" and see how they pronounce it.
I'll let you know.
My second goal: r.e.l.a.x.
We keep looking at all the websites and brochures of sailing and buggy rides, and horseback riding, and fishing (ew), and we are both just wondering where we can find a good nap.
We will be a couple weeks early for the Fudge Festival. Yes, you heard it right. Fudge Festival. You know as in Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory All You Can Dream Or Imagine Fudge. I've read that they are putting 6 golden tickets in some special fudge packages at the island fudge shops and the winners can register to win a vacation package (to oompa loompa land?).
I'm just drooling thinking about finding the right package..... which leads me to my third goal, fudge.
My fourth goal? We're a little late for this season, but I'm going to see if I can find me some cherries! After all.... Michigan is the Cherry Capitol right? (even the Traverse City Airport is named after that).
Have a great weekend!
