Holland!

On Friday we had a family retreat for work on a co-worker's house on Lake Michigan in Holland. We spent the day hanging out at the beach, playing catch and ladder golf. It was an enjoyable time, and also three hours from our home so Garth and I decided to spend the night. We had a good time exploring the city Friday and Saturday. We ate at a local brewery, walked around the shops, got ice cream, and enjoyedLake Michigan.
On Saturday night we drove home and rented Date Night. I LOVED that movie. So funny! Tina Fey and Steve Carell are magical together.

Sunday we went to church with the family and then celebrated Jess' (SIL) birthday by going to J. Alexander's. YUM! Then we went to Gersey's (Michigan made so if you are ever town go here!) to enjoy some ice cream. We have been climbing on that rock (below) since we were kids!

Another great weekend!

Sounds like a super fun weekend! I long for one of those :) My husband works weekends so we never have them off together. It just makes weekends we DO have off together that much more special.

wow that sounds so fun! New Holland brewery is one of our all time faves, their beer, food, and spirits are all awesome. We always have a bottle of their Hopquila on our shelves :) Is that where you went?

It sounds like so much a wonderful relaxing weekend! Hubby and I are in desperate need of one of those, I'm hoping it will work out for this weekend!

Glad you had a great weekend!

I actually didn't really like Date Night, which was pretty disappointing. ;/ I love both Tina Fey and Steve Carrell but something about this movie just didn't sit well with me. I'm glad to know that you liked it though!!
