I’ve been kind of draggy lately – not physically as much as emotionally. Our oldest cat – a much, much beloved diva, Prissy is really going downhill fast. (She’s 20 years old, so I guess that hill is long overdue.) Being thisclose to losing her has dampened my mood considerably, so Marina Day came at a good time. For a day, I could try to forget the “sad” side of life and just enjoy the “glad” side.
Fortunately, Grand Rivers knows how to throw a great party.
There are so many things I want to post about and I’m kind of worried about leaving anything out, so I’m going to actually add multiple posts throughout the day – covering individual topics. I’ll also be adding some really gorgeous pictures that my husband took.
I can’t tell you how much I loved seeing all of the families out together, having fun. We saw license plates from, literally all over – so families came from far and wide. I guarantee no one left without a smile on his or her face either. Are you kidding me, gorgeous scenery, great food, boat rides, games, music and FANTASTIC weather… And the only thing you had to pay for was the food?! Can’t beat it! What’s more, the food was beyond amazing and very reasonably priced.
As an unexpected surprise, the mega talented stars from the Variety! Show also made an appearance. I loved that! If you visit this site regularly, you know how much I enjoy them. Unfortunately, we had to leave not long after they took the stage – one of our three daughters needed a ride, and any parent knows that when one of your children call, all else takes a backseat.
Even great music and Red Velvet Cupcakes.
There’ll be more posts and pictures coming, so please check back. I have so much I want to cover – from a breakfast that blew my mind to boat rides that took the same mind a million miles (and cares) away. We also had some ridiculously good BBQ and a red velvet cupcake (served up courtesy of a woman in a Paula Deen wig, no less) that I’ve been thinking about since. I told you, these Grand Rivers people know how to throw a party!
Is it too soon to start looking forward to Marina Day 2009?
