Door County

Last week, we snuck away on a little family vacation to Door County.  We had never been there, so as Wisconsinites, we figured we had to check it out.  We LOVE Saugatuck, MI so much and had heard it was similar so we thought it would be the perfect place to get away to for a couple days.

Using vacationrentals.com, I found a super cheap 1 bedroom condo at the Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor.  We choose Egg Harbor, because 1. it's centrally located within the peninsula and 2. it's the name of my favorite breakfast place at home (oh how I love their cinnamon french toast!--haha, just kidding).  We thought being in a central location would allow us to check out everything Door County has to offer pretty easily and Landmark Resort seemed perfect because they have an indoor and several outdoor pools, restaurant on the resort and we had a kitchenette that allowed for us to buy food for breakfast, snacks and dessert.

We spent 4 days and 3 nights and had a great time!  Everyday we let Owen nap in the pack-n-play at the condo, then we would head out for lunch and an afternoon of touring.  Most days we ended up driving around as Owen napped in the car.  It was hard because we wanted to make sure Owen got his naps, we're somewhat rigid about getting him his naps, but also wanted to see everything so the naps in the car worked.  In true Bessick fashion, we also enjoyed several great meals.  Using our trusted Trip Advisor App, we found several places and greatly enjoyed all the places we tried.

Owen's anti-head bobbing pillow made him look like Dumbo.

 "Are you sure this is safe, Mom?"
 I think he liked it.
 Oops...a splash to the face.

Thanks for the matching outfits Nana-Daddy and O-man my blue eyed boys.

 Such a handsome boy.

Owen is becoming such a big boy!  His little personality is showing through more and he is just a laid back snuggle bug.  It's so fun seeing him grow up and be interested in everything around him.  We had a great time just spending time together as a family.
