Our Weekend Trip...Fall was in the Air!



We had a wonderful time in Michigan. I took so many pictures but I picked a few to share. It was busy with apple orchards, going to a farm, fly fishing, taking walks, shopping, visiting and much more! The weather was beautiful and fall was in the air...
This is a shot of my parents backyard...
My parents have a great river where they kayak and canoe...my dad and son fly fish there...
My mom loves "woodsy" decor..she has this furniture everywhere!!!

It is so deep in the woods...you park among the big pines!
This is a shot of the road my parents live off...it is so pretty with the big mature trees.

The next couple of pictures....we got up early in the morning on Saturday and went to an Apple cider mill. The kids had fun with the animals and riding horses. My son loved this 4 month old Lama...he was so fuzzy! They had pumpkin iced donuts and fresh apple cider. We did get swarmed by bees...that was not fun!One of the days, we went to the State Park farm. We rode on a covered hay ride pulled by beautiful black horses that took us to a pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins.


My mom enjoying the smells of the farm...hee hee!

How much can you pull?? How much milk can you carry???


What a great trip! My kids love being with their Nana and Papa. My son was so sad to leave...he loves fishing and making "flies" with my dad! Michigan has beautiful color and a true Fall Landscape to enjoy!


p.s. Go over to Adult Deprived today...she has a great giveaway for her 100th post!

My oldest daughter who is also a teacher got married this summer and moved to Michigan.(Muskegeon). I know they had a pumpkin roll there this past weekend. All of your pictures from your trip are so beautiful. I think fall is nature at its best.
