On the road Again!!

Well - mama and I are back from the marriage retreat! she took to the fine tuning just great. We had a wonderful time - we stayed at the Grand hotel on Mackinaw Island. The movie, "Somewhere in Time" starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves was filmed at the Grand Hotel.

Mama and I are soon (this Friday the 10th) off again. We are off to Oregon! We are visiting two blogging families over a weeks time. We are visiting Deb & Jer (Godsgal) and Tam & Brent (InProgress & InWorship), links to these blogs are on my blog roll. We are excited, we will meet two wonderful families, worship with them and see a state we have never been to.

We would covet your prayers during the next week as we take this incredible journey. Pray for traveling mercies, a good time and that mama and I are good examples of Christ.

I am not sure if we will post between now and our return or not - but some how I am sure Deb and Tam will keep the events posted on their blogs.

God bless!

Mama & Papa

Yes! I know The Grand Hotel! So lovely and romantic. Hope you didn't find any strange old pennies there. Wouldn't want you to get stuck back somewhere in time.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Darla - love you - we miss you and I am weeping - yor family is so precious to mama and papa.

Willow -No pennies - but great memories walking the porches, walkways and halls of this exquisite place! Time seems to stand still there!

I have been to Grand Hotel many times and love it! I'm a huge fan of the fudge they have on the island -- yum!

the garden in front of the hotel is nice. I was nearly attacked by a goose there!

Blessings!

I'm so glad you both had a wonderful time at the retreat. I love and miss you two so very much. Have a wonderful time in Oregon and please give my sisters a hug from me. Praying for traveling mercy and for God to be glorified throughout the trip XOX

Indian Lake Papa said...

Razor - the reasons they have so much fudge on the island is because of all those horses, they have to recycle that "stuff" somehow! lol

GCH - They will get hugs - for sure!! Is it okay if I give them two hugs each??

darla said...

horse fudge..hahahaha hahahahaha hahahaha

Think green..think green or is that think brown..you know all that recycling stuff..

Indian Lake Papa said...

Darla - I love fudge! I rarely question its originality ----

CrossView said...

I'm praying here....

...that you get lost and end up here! =P

I'm so glad she took to the fine tuning. I take it that means she kept YOU in line? mwahahaha

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - hey !! i am fine - just fine! Say, would you like some fudge ??

CrossView said...

ROFL!
No thanks!
I have my own horse!
=P

(Still sore from that beating, I take it?)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - Did you know it is real tough typing when you are in a full body cast? The thing that really bothers me is I said "Amen" real loud once during the presentation and now I can't see! THe doctor said the swelling of my eyes should be going down soon. I miss seeing sweet mama!

CrossView said...

Did I mention that I just adore your wife? ;o)

Tell her I said "Good shot-s"!

And remember- men should be seen and not heard!

Ok. I'll behave but only because I'm on my way out the door. WARNING! I'll be back....

And just 'cause I can be serious; watch this:

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - will I be getting a "get well soon" card in the mail ? Doesn't sound like it.

CrossView said...

Did your precious wife wear herself out keeping you in line? Does she need a card??!! =/

CrossView said...

Oh! And did you watch that awesome video??!!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - I did watch the video - very good! The card would be for me !! not Mama!! lol

CrossView said...

Ooooooooooooooooooooh!!
I misunderstood.
*snicker*

No point in sending you a "Get Well" card. You'll just misbehave and start it all over again! =P

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - You are breaking my heart! Now I will cry. Mama still loves me - gotta go - mama is calling and she means get here now! Its tough to hustle in this body cast!

ed said...

Have a great trip Papa. I look forward to seeing the videos of you guys with the Tam and Brent and their family.

If you are doing the driving I am sure Mama will be praying the whole way to Oregon. :)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Hi Ed! We are flying out - so hopefully mama or I are not doing the "driving'. I am sure Deb or Tam may have some pics or clips while there. I just hope at Tam's we don't have Oreo stew or soup - do you think Tam can cook ??? I am not sure about Deb either - but I heard Deb's hub can cook good!

Tam said...

yes tam can cook! tam has a great comfort meal planned too! yum!!!

did someone say videos??

brent and i want to do a live chat with you and mama too. hopefully we can squeeze that in our short time with you.

i cant wait to see you tuesday! we are ALL so excited!!

Tam said...

darla, im working on that darn timetravel machine!

i miss you!! a lot.

nanatrish said...

I pray you will have a wonderful trip. I know you will have fun. Your marriage retreat sounded great. I loved that movie and the hotel looked so romantic. I can't wait to see you guys in a couple of months. Take care and have fun!!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Tam - we are excited to see you as well! Whew - that is a relief to know you can cook! lol

Nana - we had a wonderful time - now we travel to the west coast! We are excited1! Never been to Oregon! WE are also meeting another blogger friend at Portland for a hug or two!

darla said...

Okay..Tam can cook..and none of us lost any weight while there, and i didn't need any tums either.. soooo now I am thinking about it again..pray for my jealousy! :)

Make sure you show Tam how to use the Mac to video chat on Yahoo...I know you do it with me..sooo she needs to be shown...have to love her...its like a law or something...pretty sure ;)

Tam- I am working on that too from my end...did you know Scott passed his permit test for CDL ... i wonder if the machine looks anything like a rig?

Indian Lake Papa said...

Darla - I am so glad Tam can cook! Any daughter of mama and papa has to be able to cook! I will work with her on Yahoo IM. Tell Scott congrats !!!

Char said...

I envy you your trip (although envy may not be a good choice!). I've been in the lobby of the Grand Hotel, but have never stayed there. Richard and I considered it once, but the price prompted us to chose a hotel in Mackinaw City instead!

It's still a dream of mine.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Char - I hear that! Our night was a special conference price so it wasn't too bad, and it included 3 meals in the gala dining hall - $290. We arrived a day early and stayed at Mackinaw City as well!

bransblahg said...

I am SO EXCITED and SO BUMMED all at the same time!!!!

You will have such a wonderful time and find it all so beautiful, you may want to move there!!!

Love you two!

You crack me up! Horse fudge.

I posted another installment of the story that is still untitled. The lack of a title really bugs me.

Hope you have a great day!
