Venetian Weekend

Well it's sunday night and I'm back from a fabulous weekend of being at Winthrop Harbor. This is our second year being able to go and while it wasn't as crazy as last year we definitely enjoyed our selves again! I mean who doesn't enjoy getting to play on boats that cost more than peoples houses?!

Saturday morning starting off with going to to Gregory's work to help get some stuff situated so he didn't have to worry about it during the week but after that it was off for some fun! Of course after a stop to Target because we we're a bit of space cadets in the morning and forgot pillows, blankets and towels. Oh, and our iPhone chargers! WOOPS! But a quick stop at Target fixed that so it was back in route to the harbor.

Now each year the harbor does a venetian night where the boats can deck themselves out in lights and decor to fit the theme. This years theme was cartoons and while Snoopy & Scooby Doo were the most popular of cartoons to pick there was a Sponge Bob Square Pants boat and an Aladdin boat to! It was really fun!

We were a bit nervous that we weren't going to get to see the boats because a crazy storm rolled in so quick it wasn't even funny!

But the storm passed quickly and with it the heat! We were able to enjoy to still enjoy the evening with the help of a blanket to keep us warm!

On Sunday, we got to head to the other pier and check out all the boats that were for sale... I can't even begin to explain how crazy it is to look at a boat and do the typical "ooo" & "ahhh" till you look at the price tag! I'm talking about these boats started at $500,000 and got up to $980,000! And honestly who wouldn't want to take a look at a boat that cost that much?! So of course I went exploring!

Wanna know what $980,000 looks like?!

That beauty of a boat is a 45 foot house on water with granite counters, hardwood floors sun deck and all types of additional to make it feel like a home. I personally just stared in awe at the fact I was standing on a million dollar boat after tax kicked in!

After wondering the boats we headed back and took a rather bumpy cruise on Lake Michigan where we stopped for lunch in Racine, WI at some restaurant named Jack's or something along the lines of that where the food was decent and the service was just HORRIBLE... I don't even want to get into how much of a mess cause I'll just get angry again...

Any who!

After a lovely weekend we are now finally at home and were able to sit on our new patio for a little bit before we came inside to just sit around. It was fabulous!

Pretty new patio!
Now I think I'm gonna curl up on the couch and watch a movie before it's back to the grind of the work week!
