Shortly after Aaron and I got married, we met Pete and Val, who were also newlyweds. And shortly after that, Val and I and two of her high school friends, Deena and Cindy, started Girls' Getaway. We'd go somewhere every year: Put-in-Bay, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Nashville, Chicago... There were years when Cindy couldn't go and there were years when I couldn't go, and more girls joined in the fun.
|Nashville, I don't remember what year|
This year we went to Geneva-on-the-Lake, as in Lake Erie. We had a total of 27 girls on this trip! We stayed at a lodge right on the lake, spent a good amount of time at the pool, played washers (similar to cornhole but much easier to transport), went to a biker bar out near a covered bridge, had dollar drinks at a bar that had a stripper pole outside (and where a DJ and his daughter sang "Picture" by Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock -- inappropriate, party of 2?) and enjoyed outdoor karaoke (yep, I sang, once while wearing the "wine goggles" below).
Another successful trip! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend as well.
