Anniversary Getaway

Well we celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on the 7th and took a trip to the West coast (of Michigan that is). We started our trip off with a trip to Holland for the Tulip Festival. Holland is this cute little beach town that celebrates the Dutch culture with the Tulip Festival every year. Nearly every street is lined with tulips and people dress up in Dutch costumes.I don't know what they feed these tulips but they are HUGEIf you look close, this fountain has flowers growing in it

We finished a bit early so after checking out some killer houses, including our future dream home we headed to the beach. That turned into an hour drive to actually find it and then a mile hike to get to it! It was well worth it though because we got to walk through this wooded trail and at the end we found this...
It was awesome! The beach was totally secluded and there was only 1 other person as far as the eye could see. We enjoyed a nice walk on the beach and dipped our toes in the frigid but crystal clear water. Ryan wrote "Happy 4th my love" awww
This was definitely a memorable trip to Lake Michigan.

After the beach and spending another hour finding our way back to the freeway we stopped for dinner and headed back to the hotel. We had a great room with a nice soft bed and a big tub to enjoy while watching basketball...I know how to comprimise when I need to

These are for you sis :)

The next morning we slept in an enjoyed their free but tasty breakfast and took a swim in the pool.

I'm sure grateful for Ryan and I love him to pieces. I can't believe he puts up with me most of the time and for that I'm ever so thankful. It has been a great 4 years and I look forward to many more together with my big guy!
