This past week, Mr. Wonderful had the entire week as vacation - the first whole week he's ever taken off work in the entire past 7 years! Wednesday we went on a day trip to Frankenmuth, Michigan. The day was cold and gloomy, but he and I always have a good time no matter the weather!
Frankenmuth is a Bavarian style town. Every building, including McDonalds and the Dollar General Store has a Bavarian flair to the outside facade! The last time I was in that town was when my boys were 3 and 5 yrs old - I remember the covered bridge was under construction, and so this trip when I saw that covered bridge completed, it was OLD construction! And next to it was a little Bavarian style shopping center! Such a cute area to walk around in!
After lunch, we visited Bronner's Christmas Village - a HUGE store filled with all things Christmas! It's open year round. You can find just about any style or theme ornament there, with all sections of the store labeled to help you locate anything you may want - farm items, beach items, forest animals, hunting, fishing - you name it!
