Ds is ALWAYS going places on holiday weekends (this one included)...usually to our property in the UP. And for some reason, I always get left behind. So, he has oh so graciously encouraged me to go on a little vacation alone and he'll stay home with ds.<br><br>
The only place I can think of is Frankenmuth. Anyone have a great suggestion for me?

I know you said Michigan, but I would probably take a quick trip to Chicago -- hey, it's closer than the UP!<br><br>
That or I would probably go to one of the ski resorts like Crystal Mountain -- even if you don't ski they have a lot of nice stuff to do.

Heck...I'm up for making it a group trip if anyone wants to escape with me!<br><br>
I'm thinking of maybe someplace that has a spa attached to it....I still have to cash in on my combined bday/Mother's Day present (trip to the spa). I've been waiting.... I'll have to do some searching...

Let me know. I'm game...I have a baby due Dec. 6. If I were to go anywhere between now and then it'd have to be within an hour of Lake Orion (where the birth is). If I drive REALLY FAST, Frankenmuth might just be within that radius. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> (okay, usually they happen at night, right?! No traffic, faster trip...). I dunno about spas up there, though...but I sure as HECK could use a spa trip!!!

I was in Frankenmuth all day today! It was fun! But not exactly a great place for a relaxing getaway. Unless relaxing to you is stuffing your face with fried chicken and fudge. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
What about Saginaw? They have some cute looking Bed and Breakfasts there, and I believe they have a day spa or two. I've never been but it looks like a nice place to walk around for a day!

I think I am going to wait and do this until after the holidays....the biz is going to be keeping me running until Christmas. Maybe we can do something in January? Courtenay, how many births do you have then?

Awhhh These are the times when I wish DS didn't night nurse. I'd be so nice to get away and get a full nights rest with spa day attached! Maybe next year. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
The Jacob's Ladder toy rocks Carrin! My husband and I are having fun playing with it!

I hear ya! I know there are several mamas who would join if it weren't for that darned night nursing (which I say with a grin).<br><br>
Glad you liked the JL....When I got them I played with one for a long time (I'd never seen one before). Hey, was that for you or is it supposed to be a gift? LOL Enjoy!

Just Sandra, and she's sure she'll go before her due date. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> My birthday is Monday the 7th. Wouldn't that be a nice b-day gift sometime around then! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
