Monday Montage- Our Full Fun Weekend

We sure had a jam packed Friday and Saturday.
I want to thank everyone for the anniversary wishes!

Whilst we were packing our overnight bag.
we had a stowaway.

Who can this be?

Why it is our little kittie Ace.
He can be such a little stinker at times.

We headed up to Port Sanilac to my mom's house.
Once we got to my mom's, we headed into town
to the Farmer's Market.

An Amish mom and her son were there too!
I respected their privacy and did not take their picture.
However, these are the goodies I bought from her.

Cinnamon Rolls

Mini pies, Molasses and Pineapple Cookies. Yum!

Our next stop was for an early dinner.
At the Blue Water Inn in town.
In my 20's this place was just a bar with live bands on the weekend.
They took the original outside sign and placed it inside.
My cousin and I spent many 2:00 am last calls in this place....
now its hard for me to stay up past midnight. LOL

Then at 6:00 we had slight scare.
The tornado warning sounded off in town.
My mom had the weather on and a funnel cloud was spotted 15 miles
East of Port Sanilac moving in the direction of my mom's.
She got her flashlight and radio ready and we kept looking outside
ready to head to her storm shelter if necessary.
The sky to the North of her was purple- black and fortunately
the all clear was sounded a half hour later.

At 7:30 we headed to the barn theatre for a comedy play called "Drinking Alone"

Picture of the curtain.
They have had plays in this circa 1900 barn
every Summer since 1980.

Side entrance with a player piano.
Cement Floor.
The play was really funny and we laughed throughout the show.

Saturday we drove over to Frankenmuth
visited our favorite antique stores in the area,
and of course we had to have
the Famous Chicken Family Style dinner

at the Bavarian Inn.

Dinner consisted of
Stollen bread with strawberry rhubarb jam.
Chicken Pasta Salad
Cole Slaw
Chicken Noodle Soup
Fried Chicken
Mashed Potatoes/ Gravy
Buttered Noodles
Cranberry Salad
Mixed Veggies (Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots)

Did I say it was all you can eat?
Yup it was.

 Then for dessert we had orange vanilla swirl ice cream
with gingersnap cookies.

They had to roll us out after that. :-)

I'm getting hungry now. LOL

Our last stop was at Bronner's Christmas Shoppe.
This place is so huge!
You may visit their website at
to see some of the items they carry.
They are open 361 days for all of your Christmas ideas...
except primitive...
but it is still awesome to go inside!

Monday Blessings to all!
(Will take me a few days to catch up on all of your blogs)
