Just what the doctor ordered

Oh my goodness, I feel so relaxed and refreshed after a long weekend with my baby. It was just what the doctor ordered. We slept in, went for long, lazy walks on Lake Michigan, and Garth cooked up some amazing meals. Gotta love the simplicity of camping. No TV so we entertain ourselves with a good fire and good wine. We make a game of throwing tea candles into a bucket. We play "Have you ever" and "Would you rather." We got sunburned and sandy. We smelled like Off and bonfire. We ate grilled chicken, brauts, and eggs. We saw so many stars and mosquitos. Ahhh that is the life.
