Another Monday… another Weekend Round Up a day late. You win some, you lose some, am I right?
But really, I can’t consider the fact that I didn’t get a blog post up on Sunday a loss, because I had such an amazing weekend! And I’ve got the bug bites, muddy shoes and pictures to prove it.
We spent a long weekend in the UP and oh man did we have fun. I got to Manistee late Thursday night (the reason you didn’t see a blog post). I worked until 4 then had a long drive ahead of me.
Friday morning, we woke up early and headed across the bridge! We saw so many awesome things. We stopped for burgers at Clyde’s, floated on the raft at Kich-iti-kipi, hiked to a bunch of waterfalls in the Pictured Rocks.
Saturday we woke up early again to start a hike that I was dying to do! Oh my gosh. It was beautiful but HOLY MUD.
It was so bad guys. If you follow me on Snapchat, you saw our adventure. And adventure is definitely an understatement. However, the seven mile hike was 1,000% worth it in the end for views like this….
I can’t wait to tell you more about all the amazing things we saw and did in the UP in our short time there. Look for them on future Mitten Monday posts! (And look for a whole bunch more amazing photos too! You’ll see a few of them sooner if you follow me on Instagram.)
After our hike, we grabbed some lunch at Pictured Rocks Pizza (delicious and I’d totally recommend it if you’re in the Munising area!) and headed to Marquette for my cousin’s graduation festivities.
We helped decorate for his graduation party as soon as we arrived, then hurried to get checked into our hotel and cleaned up. We went to church as a family then walked over to his grad party together. Come 9:00 when the party was over, I could barely keep my eyes open. I was exhuasted!
Sunday morning we slept in (thank goodness) and headed to Doncker’s for breakfast before we headed to graduation. Our breakfast was SO YUMMY you guys! I’ll be doing a post on this awesome place too 😊 We had hoped to see some scenic sights around Marquette before graduation but it was SO FOGGY AND COLD. Our hotel was right on Lake Superior and you couldn’t even tell there was a lake out there.
After graduation, we said our goodbyes and started the 7 hour drive home. If you’ve ever driven through the middle of the UP I know you can feel my pain. Luckily, I got to sleep through the boring bits!
And now I’m up bright and early to head back (I’m calling 9 am bright and early cuz I’m exhausted!) to Detroit. My first day working at Comerica Park is tomorrow and I’m so excited!
I hope you all enjoyed your weekends as much as I did. I’m back tomorrow for Travel Tuesday. Have a great Monday loves!
