So in celebration of a respite in Dave's workload of late, (12+ hours a day, seven days a week for months on end - including Easter Sunday) I made reservations at one of Michigan's lovely mini-cabins available at some of the State Parks. It was really nice! It had two relatively comfy bunk beds, a wall-mounted electric heater (which came in very handy), a little table and some benches.
We drew with chalk,
We went for a little hike,
We played in the sand,
We rocked in the hammock (stroke of genius on Dave's part!)
And we ate yummy food.
All in all, not a bad trade off for breakfast in bed on Mother's Day - instead I got to spend some time with my mostly MIA husband and wake up with my daughter looking at me from the bunkbed across the cabin. Not too shabby.
