Day Trip!

Yesterday morning I called my Mom (age88) around 7:30am to see if she would like to go on a spontaneous road trip  with Daughter #1 and I . Of course, Daughter #1 was still sleeping and had no idea of the pending trip. My Mom agreed, I woke up my daughter and we were on the road by 10am. We didn't have a certain destination but we all three agreed we would like to go to "the water". Living in Ohio we are somewhat "land locked" but, we do have access to the Great Lakes, Lake Erie specifically. We drove to Marblehead, Oh. It is home to the Marblehead Lighthouse.

We walked around and enjoyed the beautiful scenery on the lake front!

We visited a few small stores, all with a nautical theme. I bought this adorable frame for "Baron".
The picture isn't very good, but it reads - "The Captain and His First Mate". (smile)

We ended the afternoon with a delicious lunch at "Mon Ami" Restaurant and Winery.

We enjoyed wonderful baked brie with apples and crab cakes! Yummy! I don't have any pics of the food as we started eating so quickly. (smile).

It was a wonderful day shared with three generations. I think it was the kind of day that memories are made of! Have a wonderful Thursday.


  1. What a lovely day you had. I love doing stuff like this with my mother and my little son too. She is 78, I am 46 and my boy is 4 and half. My mother can't walk round much but we usually go to a playground, where she can sit and he can play, then browse shops and go for lunch or ice-cream. Moments to treasure indeed!

    1. We are so blessed to be able to enjoy our families in this way! I know you mother must love watching her grandson play on the playground. Grandparents are always so enamoured by their grandchildren. Indeed, moments to treasure! Thanks for sharing!
