It was a beautiful Friday when we left around noon to go and celebrate Ryan’s birthday at Mt. Baldy in Michigan City Indiana. We had the food all ready when Ryan got home from work. It was so hot the day before and I was a little worried that it might be too hot for Frankie and thankfully it was just perfect. In fact it was a little chilly by the lake but Frankie loved it anyway. Before we head east, we stopped by Kohl’s to get him his toys to use. When we got there, it was around 3:30 p.m. already and there wasn’t a lot of people. Ryan didn’t want to eat by the lake. He wanted to eat by the parking area because there was a table there but I insisted. I told him that we can sit on the sand and eat there. He had never experienced that before so I don’t blame him when he was a little apprehensive.
It has been a while since I last visited Mt. Baldy and it has changed a lot. The path where Ryan and I used to climb to get to the peak is now closed. They also had the way to the parking lot now fenced up so that people can no longer climb up from the parking lot. We have to take a different route to get to the lake. It was a little walk but Frankie was great. We were all bringing the stuff for lunch. When we got to the spot, we went ahead and started eating. Ryan was sitting on the sand and I started handing them the plates and the spoon and forks. Frankie didn’t really care so much to eat as he started playing right away but later Ryan had to give him something.
After we ate, Ryan said that he really had fun. I mean it was his first time to eat like that and he thought it was that bad. He however had a hard time getting up. Papa on the other hand was sitting on the folding chair that he brought. We were there for almost 3 hours just talking and taking turns in playing with Frankie. Before we left, Ryan called Dad and Noelle and told them that we will be stopping to see them since we are around the area anyway. We have always been like that every time we are in Indiana we always stop by to see them and most of the time have a nice dinner in the backyard. That was where we were heading after coming back from the lake but that will be in another post.
