Yesterday was an awesome day. It was my Aunt's 60th birthday so to celebrate we took a day trip to New Buffalo MI. The reason for our destination was 3 fold.
1. We're renting some houses there this summer for a McGillen family trip. We got to check out those houses. They are really nice.
2. It's a pretty suitable meeting place. My parents, aunts, uncles, brother, and cousins from MI all met us there. It's only a 3 hour drive for them, and only an hour and a half from Chicago. Aunt Colleen also came from Iowa to suprise Patti. She hung in Chicago (actually La Grange) with Patti and Peggy. We don't see Colleen as often as we'd like, since Iowa is pretty out of the way. I think it had been about 2 years since I'd seen her. So that was really cool.
3. We ate at Redamak's. For those who don't know, Redamak's is a seasonal burger joint that's only open from April to October. To be honest, it's not the greatest burger, but they are good. I wouldn't make the trip just to go to Redamak's, but New Buffalo is a really quaint town and it'll be great to spend at least 2 or 3 days relaxing with my family this summer.
