Music:I dunno what the name of it is, but its a good song!
What a weekend!
Mark and I went to Tawas this weekend and it was amazing. We drove up there in the rain later in the afternoon and pretty much just unloaded the car and went to bed after watching a movie. We woke up rather early. It was about 9:00 am and I made scrambled eggs, fried eggs, bacon and sausage. It was excellent. After breakfast we showered and got ready to see some of the beautiful sites up north. Well, I forgot my camera so instead of heading out we just went to Sand Lake for a little bit before heading back to the cabin. We hung out there for a little bit and then grabbed the camera and headed out to Lumberman's Monument. We looked out over the river and I never felt more loved with him holding me there. We decided to climb down the stairs to the river and look at the fish. We sat there talking and splashing out feet in the water for a little bit before climbing back up. After Lumberman's we started driving toward the damn and the bear store. We saw a lil park that had some information about about natural springs. We thought that drinking natural spring water would be pretty cool but weren't really prepared to climb more steps. We talked to one man who came up the stairs huffing and puffing and he said the sites were worth it. We went down the stairs and it was absolutely the coolest thing ever. There were natural springs running everywhere and little paths through the woods and out to the water. After we enjoyed the sites we headed back up the stairs and went to the damn and then to the bear store. We both had strawberry cheesecake ice cream and I bought candy cigarettes. After leaving the bear store we headed back to the cabin and relaxed there for about an hour. After relaxing we hopped back in the car and headed to town. We went throught Norman's and when we came out the front they had 2 street blocks blocked off and had live bands at each end and people were dancin' in the streets. It was so cool. We decided to leave the crowd and walk down the pier before enjoying the music. The walk on the pier was so romantic. It was beautiful outside and it wasn't crowded. We just talked and walked and held hands. It was so nice. We then walked down the streets and listened to the songs. It was like 9 at night when we left town and headed back to the cabin. On the way back we started looking for deer. We didn't see many but we went down this lil two track road and were just driving b/c I knew it opened up back there somewhere. Well after about 2 miles I looked up and saw a state cop in my rear view mirror and freaked out. I found somewhere to turn around so I did and by the time we got back out onto the main road the deer were really out. We saw about 20-30 total. Well, after that we got to the cabin we started a fire and made burgers for dinner. We roasted some marshmallows by the fire and the stars were out and so bright. I couldn't imagine spending such a perfect night w/ anyone else. Once the fire started to die down I found a bucket that had some rain water in it so I put the fire out and Mark and I went to bed until noon Sunday. We made lunch and showered and got ready to go. It was between 4 and 5 when we finally left. On the way home we stopped in Omer at the flea market. I bought Mark a coll thumb ring there then we headed to Pinconning. We stopped and got some cheese and went to another flea market. Mark took the wheel from there. It seriously was the most amazing weekend ever. The weather was perfect, Mark was perfect and such a sweetie and so romantic, as usual.
