A relaxing week at the lake followed by a heartbreaking football loss

We went to Kelley’s Island, Ohio on Monday with my parents for the week.  We love it there (more info here).  Here was the view from the deck of the condo we rented…ki view from deck

Kelley’s Island is a hidden gem in my opinion.  It’s only four miles across, but there are so many walking trails and even a small beach that it feels bigger when you explore.  This is the third time we’ve gone there and it won’t be the last.  Here are a few photos from around the small island…ki boatski me & jason on beach

A great week with a not so great end.

    Your trip does look wonderful. You scared me when I read heartbreaking loss. I love football, too, but I’m glad your loss wasn’t anything more than a football game.

    I really need more sleep 🙂 After your comment I realized that I was being a bit melodramatic for non Buckeye fans.

    That sucked. Your seats appear to be much closer and nicer than ours haha. I will have to post some of our photos, preferably the one’s without zoom. 🙂 We got back to Michigan around 3:30 today and I am zonked. Tailgating 12 hours and then a football game, and then a lot of traffic makes for a LOOOONG day.

    We were in the B Deck, 4th row around the 40 yard line.

    OK – I must confess. I used to pick OH State all the time – in football, in basketball – whatever. I think I just liked their pot leaf stickers and the fact that I lived ever so briefly in OH and that they don’t have annoying school songs like ND for example. But then they became the biggest chokers going and I started to get really irritated. They made me look bad. So I have ditched them. But the upside is, you’ll probably have much better luck now that I am no longer associated with the process ;0)

    Oh what fun!! The photos are beautiful and it sounds like a great time! You scared me too when you mentioned a loss. I’m glad it was a football game (sorry for the loss though) and nothing worse. Welcome back!
