Quick Trip, Quick Pics

We Subarued over to Saugatuck at 9am Tuesday morning to celebrate Jim’s big 4-2. It was completely fantastic — as soon as we arrived the sky cleared up and the temps soared for the best possible beach day. Oval Beach brought back wonderful memories and we enjoyed the tasty food we picked up from The 4.5 star Farmhouse Deli in our beach chairs. As luck would have it, the beach concession stand was also having a slushy sale so I made sure to treat the kids. Bastien was a bit outraged that I didn’t also treat Jim, until I reminded him of Jim’s vegan cupcakes PLUS Farmhouse carrot cake and macaroon (I knew you were worried he would be stuck with just the vegan cupcakes). After all that we stopped by the super sweet 4.5 star The Southerner for dinner and watched the storm roll in while playing Connect Four and Sorry, and eating our amazing southern food in the screened in porch overlooking the river. It was pretty magical. We drove out in the storm and were safe at home by 9:30pm.

Jim planned himself a pretty stellar birthday and I’m so glad we could all take part.
