I want to be on vacation forever

Vacation was pretty much the best thing ever.

I got to spend a ton and a half of time with my favorite chubby baby.

And a ton and a half of time with the mother of my favorite chubby baby.

Including simultaneous massage appointments. Blissful.

We stayed in a cabin that was right on Lake Michigan. It wasn't on a swimming friendly beach, but the weather wasn't swimsuit friendly. It was bonfire friendly. It was lay on a blanket and play with the baby friendly. It was eat on the patio friendly. It was jog every morning friendly.

Have I mentioned that I got to spend a lot of time with Baby A?

And with my bestest friend, Lucy?

Which is a damn good thing, because they're leaving soon for a month-long trip to Israel and I am going to miss them terribly.

While we didn't do a lot worth writing about, it was a great trip. Lucy and I spent most of every day with the baby. Chet and his friend floated in and out - they went fishing one day, they made us an enormous barbecue lunch another day, they joined us at the farmer's market and we sat around the fire or played games and drank too much and ate junk food and stayed up too late every night.

I was always the first to get up and moving every morning. The cabin was quiet and I would make coffee and read.

While everyone else stayed an extra night, I had to go home yesterday. I worked today.

Going from vacation straight to work is to rude.

To ease my vacation mourning, Michigan has awesome roadside parks. Seriously. I'm convinced that it what they're for. You you can just pull into while you're driving along. Extending your vacation by a few precious minutes.

Saturday evening was just too gorgeous to not pull over and capture with my iPhone.

I suppose it wouldn't be vacation if it lasted forever.

But I wouldn't have complained about a few more days.
