It’s been decades since I last watched Care Bears. I grew up in the 80s and 90s where Care Bears, Barbies, Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and many others were popular.

This allowed my husband and me to have a few opportunities for “dates” while our son spent time with his grandparents. Whenever we visit the Saugatuck area, we never miss two of our favorite wineries: Fenn Valley and Hudsonville.
