Local Exploring, Easy Weekend

After traveling out of town for what seems like an entire month, it was time for a weekend at home.  Just what we needed.  While not adventuresome, per say, we did do some in-town exploring.  A bike ride to the local lake, lunch on the roof patio at my favorite restaurant in town, and a stop by the jazz festival (and impromptu car show!) going on downtown.  Sunday was spent at the driving range, and then about an hour south at Ryan’s parents house – and I must admit I was too busy playing with Ruby and enjoying the sun to remember any pictures. (Yikes!)

Weekend Lifeguard Bench
Lake Lansing definitely isn’t Lake Michigan, but it will do for a cool-off dip.

Weekend Shoreline
It’s funny to me that there are cottages on this lake – I never really think of where I live as anyone’s vacation spot, but if you lived in northern Ohio or south of Detroit, this would be an easy “up north” drive for the weekend.

Weekend Paddle Boats
Plus, there’s paddle boat rentals!  I need to come back and do this some evening, it might be fun.

Weekend El Az
I can’t think of anything better than spending a lazy afternoon on the roof of El Azteco drinking margaritas and eating chips.  We were fortunate to get a table in the shade with a nice breeze.  Glorious!

Weekend Roof View
So El Az doesn’t have a breathtaking view, but it’s not bad for people watching below.

Weekend Car Show
After lunch we poked around downtown, and there was a little enclave of old cars all parks together just outside the jazz festival.  Antique English cars, which were very cool!
