PIB Weekend Away: Island Fun Pack

When Jill from Lake Erie Shores & Islands starting planning our weekend trip to PIB she mentioned the Island Fun Pack.  It seemed like something only couples with children would do but we decided to check it out and see what it was all about.  We arrived at The Depot to pick up our Fun Pack & hop on the first train ride of the day.  The train ride takes you to all destinations in the fun pack & also gives you a tour around the island and a history lesson.  Put in Bay has much more history than I ever knew! 

Our first stop was at Perry's Cave family fun center.  We took a stroll through the Antique Car Museum. 



Then headed to Perry's Cave which was originally discovered by Commodore Perry in 1813.   The cave is 52 feet below surface and hosts a rare underground lake. 



My personal favorite of the fun pack was the Butterfly house!  It felt like a piece of heaven on earth.  There is beautiful peaceful music playing, fountains & park benches.  I told Eric I wanted to take a nap in there. 





We also checked out the War of 18 holes Miniature Golf! Eric may have beat me but I still enjoyed the game!






And we finished off our fun pack at Heineman's Winery & Crystal Cave.  The Winery was founded in 1888 & survived prohibition of alcohol by selling grape juice & offering cave tours! The tour includes wine sampling & we decided to also enjoy a cheese plate thanks to Jayme's recommendation.








We were pleasantly surprised on how much fun the Island Fun Pack was & how much we learned & discovered!  After spending a few hours at the fun center & winery we just grabbed the train ride back to the depot!  It was a perfect way to spend a day at Put in Bay!  Thank you so much to Heineman's Winery & Perry's Cave Family Fun Center for providing 2 Island Fun Packs!

PIB Weekend Away: Miller Ferry

As mentioned last week Eric & I visited Put In Bay Ohio last month!  It was a great time and we were so thankful to have a full weekend get away so close to home!  Obviously we had to find a way to get to the Island.  There are a few options to get there but Miller Ferry is the best choice! 





A few things about Miller Ferry
- You can take your car, RV, boat or bike on the Ferry.
-It takes just minutes to get to the Island.
-The price is very affordable!
-Friendly staff!

We really enjoyed our ride on the Ferry!  And are so thankful to Katrina from Miller Ferry who provided our round trip tickets!  Next time you are heading to the island ride the Miller Ferry!  Its the best way to PIB!

Excuse the poor quality of the photos.

This weekend was crazy busy! Saturday I met up with an old friend from High School who I haven't seen since school!  We went to a few garage sales and a craft/art fair.  I also went and checked out my new apartment! I'm super excited to be moving next month!  I cant wait to have a washer and dryer again along with a private entrance!  Saturday evening I was my Papa's date to his 50th high school reunion!  It was so much fun! Today my Mom came over and helped me to do some major cleaning and purging.  And I just got back from taking my friends maternity photos!  I love prouductive weekends! How was your weekend? I hope you have a great Monday!

What I Wore: Cobalt Blue & Polka Dots!




Top: Thrifted, Necklace: c/o Poor Sparrow, Skirt: Old Navy, Shoes: Target, Bracelets: F21

This shirt is the reason why I love thrifting!  It buttons all the way down, its a great silk material, over sized & has polka dots!  Even better for $1!  I have been wearing it at least once a week and have so many ideas on how to wear with other pieces.  I picked up this skirt last week at Old Navy.  They have a beautiful emerald color that I tried on but they didn't have my size so I went out of my comfort zone with this bright blue. I'm so glad I did! 

What is your favorite thrifted find?
