Family Fun magazine recently did an article on Sleeping Bear Dunes…how great is that? Because of this article I found this fun little cruise called the Nauti-cat. We were scheduled to go on the Kids’ Cruise but it was cancelled due to fog and so we were upgraded to the Happy Hour cruise that afternoon. Happy Hour? SOLD!
We settled in with a glass of Catnip (their special punch) and a beer for Matt and just…chilled. It was awesome.
Matthew was very upset because all of the hammocks were filled. So he pouted. Just like he pouted at the campground when there were “too many big kids” on the big pillow. He’s really good at pouting. Does anyone else give into their babies because…they’re the baby of the family? Or because they have the cutest chin dimple? Or because they still want to be tucked in every night? No? Just me. Ok, then.
After a while, I was pouting too. The hammocks were filled with teenagers! Teenagers who have no responsibilities and have no need for relaxing! Teenagers who should have a summer job not be on cruises! I am a mother of 3…on vacation…camping! I need the hammock damn it! And finally there was room. And a nice mom of 2 offered to take our picture. How about that?
We laid in the hammock just chilling with water beneath us and this above us…
Until I noticed a little girl. Pouting. Because she wanted a turn in the hammock. So we got out. I drove Gabe nuts by getting out my camera and trying to get a nice, smiling picture.
So I gave up and instead focused on my favorite girl and her freckles.
We ended the day with…you guessed it…more swimming at the pool. But looking forward to the following day at the beach!
