Our Little Get Away!

Hi guys!

It seems like I've been gone forever. Chris & I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversay and took a mini vacation to Frankenmuth Michigan. It's Michigan's "Little Bavaria" and has lots of charm & character. My husband is 100% German and one of the main hotels even has a room named after his family.

We stopped by to visit one of his relatives.



Here we are in front a pig. I'm not sure why he's there, but he must be German.



We alway have to go to Wily's Sausage shop so my husband can get an assortment of "wurst" or German sausage. This is only about 1/3 of the kinds of sausages they had in that store. They also sell frozen buffalo hearts, so let me know if you need me to send you some *shudder*



Here are some pics of some of the cute buildings around town.





Frankenmuth is world famous for their fried chicken & I love this old sign that still stands in front of my favorite restaurant in town.



There's lots more pics that I wanted to share with you, but Photobucket isn't cooperating AT ALL!

Well, as often happens, when we got home on Sunday life handed us a big slice of sh!t pie, so I was just feeling sorry for myself the last couple of days & did feel like posting.

I do have lots more pics to share with you from the 2 acre Christmas store & the cool old cemetary, so you'll get to see more of our adventure.

We too love Frankenmuth. Looks like you had a nice time. Sorry you had to come home to unfortunate circumstances. Hang in there friend.

I've been there many times myself and it's really fun. We always leave with way too much fudge and taffy.

I have some Zehnders chicken seasoning that I like to use at home too. :)

I have not been to that sausage shop OR chicken place but I drive by there every time I head up North. Michigan is awesome!

Oh how fun! We have a little town like that here. It's a big tourist trap, but we love to go anyway ;)

Happy Anniversary!! It sounds like a great trip and I look forward to seeing more pics!

Sara said...

Sounds like a great trip! And I always wondered if other people took pictures in cemeteries. I love to visit them.

Oh hi, you sweet and lovely Mimi and Oscar! I've missed you too, but I'm almost back! I'll be posting something later this week I think, and from there on onwards and upwards!
Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Sorry to hear about the "big piece of shitpie"! Hope everything is okay. A great big hug for you and for Oscar. Lots of love from Holland (I feel almost like being related to you, for no good reason at all, other than Germany being our neighbours ;-)).

Happy Anniversary!! Looks like you all had a great time!! Nothing like a few days away with the hubby, alone. Glad you're back!

Happy Anniversary!

That looks like a very neat little town! I would love to go there sometime.

BTW, I gave up on Photobucket. I only post through Blogger or Picassa now. Photobucket was horrible to me.
