Our Romantic Weekend Trip To Windsor and Detroit

I know that when you think of Windsor and Detroit that it doesn't sound romantic - but we make it romantic. We like to visit the casino in Windsor, especially now that it is a Caesar's Property. We also like to shop cross border and I'm sure we will find some nice restaurants to visit.

We work from our home so it gets hard to get some down time at home. So we take mini vacations when we can (usually when Montana is with her Mom).

Montana leaves for camp on Friday - Have Fun Montana!

So we will update you all either while we are there or when we return.


Introduction to our Blog

Hi Everyone,
We are starting this blog to chronicle our awesome vacations together and to share them with the people in our lives and our Excellent Vacation Ideas Readers. We hope you get a sense of what we see and do and get some great vacation ideas for yourselves. We will include photos and videos and you might even see a new addition to the family (no mom it isn't' what you think!).

Warren and I will post as often as we can, and we hope Montana will too!

Our next entry will be our amazing itinerary for our family trip - Summer 2008 - Australia and Hawaii (although Gracie will have to stay home ) !

Thanx for reading and we can't wait to post our adventures for you!

Melanie, Warren and Montana and Gracie too - woof
