How You Dune

This pictures illustrates my excitement for our Dunes Trip.

We left around 10:00 and got to the Dunes near 11:30. To get to the beach we had to walk through a wooded area. It was beautiful but, man, was it a hard walk. Flip flops really do not suffice for a difficult wooded walk. And that sand- hot, hot, HOT!

Once at the beach we swam, played, took part in general frolicking. We all ate after a bit.

And then set on creating a sand wedding cake.

Group Picture :-D

After the beach we headed out for something sweet and cold. We ended up at Scoops in Michigan City. I ordered a Strawberry Smoothie but was a little disappointed to see a whole bunch of fruit syrup go into the blender. It ended up being a bit too sweet for my liking and I drank about half of it.

Anyhoo, I just finished my dinner of homemade manicotti and meatballs and am exhausted! I forget how tired the sun makes me. I'm in the middle of an episode of Chopped (it is INTENSE) and will probably do a little reading before bed once it is finished. I'm excited to start the new Emily Giffin book Matters of the Heart!!

What are you reading now?


  1. that looks like the perfect day! You'll have to let us know how the book is- I always love a new recommendation!

  2. Your day at the beach looks wonderful! I loved your sand wedding cake! =P

  3. Thanks to both of you for commenting! And Simply Life, I will definitely post a review of the book :-) I have to admit, though, that the title is actually "The Heart of the Matter". I was having a space cadet moment when I wrote that, haha.
