Grand Haven, Day 1

We decided that we wanted a relaxing vacation this year, so we chose the Michigan beach town of Grand Haven, booked a house, and hoped for good weather.

We got the kids in the car, the DVD player set up and away we went.

Luckily we only had to stop once and made it in a little over 3 hours.  A short stop at Meijer, and we were on our way to our rental home.

Our house (I'll give the address at the end of our stay) is wonderful! So clean, just enough room for us.  We love it.

Our first stop was a local pizza place, Fricano's Pizza.  I found this by googling "pizza Grand Haven, MI", so we didn't know what to expect.

But, when we got there at 4:45 and people were already lined up for the 5:00 opening, we knew we hit the jackpot.

 We walked in to find the menu on our place mat.  You can order one thing, thin crust pizza.  Your options are cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, anchovies, green peppers.  I guess the most popular is  the EBA, everything but anchovies.  We chose the cheese, pepperoni, and mushrooms and it was fantastic.  Pizzas are 8 dollars each with 25 cents added on per topping.  Not a bad deal!
Cash only!
 A hungry, tired boy that wants pizza!

 Your eyes do not deceive you!  No plastic cups are straws at this pizza joint. Order at your own risk.

We ordered the cheese, pepperoni, and mushroom.  Actually we ordered 2 and ate 1.5 of them.

We are already planning on going back on our last night. It was so good!

After dinner we headed back to the house, got changed into our swim suits and headed to the beach.  I forgot my camera, but Blake loved the water.  LOVED IT.  Ava kept busy looking for shells, her new obsession.

After an hour, we headed back to the house, had some popcorn, and put the kids to bed.
