The boat is docked in St. Charles, which is about a 40 minute drive from our house. We left with plenty of time to find something to eat before the tour began at two o'clock. After arriving in St. Charles we drove around a bit before finding Gabby's Kitchen. The food was decent and we made it to the dock around 1:45.
When we got to the dock we were surprised to find the parking lot relatively empty. We had figured since this was the last weekend of the season the boat ride would have been pretty packed. We got out of the car to try and find someone to talk to. No such luck there... but we eventually did see the sign. The extremely small handwritten sign that said "boat rides canceled due to high winds." WHAT!?!?!?!

I mean, there was a lot of wind yesterday, but didn't these people realize we drove all the way there just for the boat tour? No? Well they should have. I suppose we could have tried to go today, but we had other plans. Like putting up all the wall decorations in the nursery! I think the only thing left to hang is the curtain rod, which won't happen until next week because I need to borrow a drill from my dad. We also cleaned out our kitchen cabinets and cleaned our sliding glass doors.
I'm now off to get a free haircut at Ulta (with a $10 donation to breast cancer research!!) and will do some crafting when I get home, I've got about five different projects I can work on!
