All good things come to an end...

It's our last day already! The rain came over night, and we woke up to it. I'd planned to spend some time at the beach...hmmm, packing instead. Got quite a bit of stuff into the truck, and then Jane and I checked out the beach. She was insistent that we go in; so we went back up and got suits on. Figured I was playing the 'best mommy' card by toughing it out; it was kind of windy and chilly. However, we had a great time; maybe 20 minutes, but it wasn't that cold, and she had a blast running and jumping into the little waves. Back up to shower and pack the rest of our stuff. We then headed up and around the thumb so we could see the Pointe Aux Barques Lighthouse. Jane was pretty impressed (you never know with a 4 year old!). We got to look at the staircase, but they only had like 6 rungs you could climb; the rest was closed to the public. Jane was a little freaked about the stairs, but I love the photo of her by the window. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, and I took a bunch of fun photos of the girls in their dresses from Mexico. Drove for awhile and found a nice place for lunch; looked like a greasy spoon, but really had nice people and good paninis. Penny slept for most of the ride home, and Jane and Gram Nomi did good in the backseat, even though Jane was getting a little done with traveling. I've decided all parents really need a Grandma to constantly ride in the backseat with the kids. Seriously, calmest my kids have ever been.

We made it home! Had some Gus's ribs and breadsticks for dinner, then Mom and Gram Nomi got back in the car to head to K'zoo. Lots of driving, but I think we were all happy to be settled back into our 'spaces' for the evening.

Wonderful trip. I'm so mad I didn't get a pic of all 4 of us!
