Day Trip To Frankenmuth

Tina was home with the boys all week and was getting a wee bit stir crazy. We packed the boys and headed up to Frankenmuth, Michigan for a day trip. Adam wanted some saltwater taffy and fudge and Tina wanted to buy some new ornaments at Bronner's. Both of us wanted a chicken dinner.

It being after Christmas, the crowds on the main drag were light. It made for a pleasant stroll. The weather was slightly on the cool side, but there was no snow, a nice day for walking. Adam bought his taffy and fudge. We headed over to Zehnder's for an early supper, but the place busy. So we headed across the street to the Bavarian Inn. It too was busy, but the line moved quickly and after about a 10 minute or so wait, we were seated.

We decided to go with the Chicken Dinner which consisted bread and jam, chicken noodle soup, three salads, mashed potatoes, stuffing and, of course, the world famous chicken. It was a good thing that we had no lunch, because there was a lot of food. The price for the four of was reasonable - about $45 US. We even had some leftover chicken to take home. After supper, we browsed the shops.

The final stop was Bronner's, one of the largest Christmas Stores in the world. It was not busy, which was a good thing. We looked around and bought around $100 in ornaments. Headed back to Windsor as the sunset. Tina enjoyed her day out. So did the rest of the family.
