It's over. It was great. Lauren, John and I got nice tans, had a lot of fun, loved lake Michigan and highly recommend St. Joseph, MI, specifically Silver Beach (trust me, google a link to this beach. It is fantastic!!) and about 45 minutes north of there, Saugatauk, MI (http://www.saugatuck.com/). All I can say is beautiful.
Just a cute story before I go. We got Lauren a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, but the peanut butter was crunchy. She didn't like the "crumbs" in it, so when I told her it was actually not crumbs but nuts, she said, "Nuts are for squirrels, and I am not a squirrel." Duh!
