There is really nothing like fall season. I looked at the forecast for this week and it sounds like 50's and 60's are in store. My FAVORITE time of the year. Football, sweatshirts, turning leaves, apple orchards, pumpkins and open windows.
On Saturday Addy and I took our first fall adventure with Grandma Dana and Great Grandma Anita down to Red Wing, MN. The purpose of the adventure was to meet up with my mom's siblings, some of my cousins and my mom's cousins from WI that we haven't seen in many years.
We headed out at about 10am for Red Wing and along the way we stopped at an apple orchard just outside of Red Wing before we met for lunch at 1pm. We had a blast at the apple orchard with Addy as we tasted some great apples, sat on a big chair and walked around the corn stalks. Pictures will follow.
Then we headed to meet everyone for lunch at Liberty's Restaurant and Lounge. The food was nummy and the fellowship was great. We also did a little shopping and headed down for a drive by the river. It is such a beautiful city. We then headed back to the cities and also brought my cousins' Mary and Sarah back too. We had great talks on the ride home and Addy sure loved hanging with everyone.
The day was so wonderful and it made me realize how blessed I am to have such wonderful family. Ben and I will be traveling later this week to Michigan to visit his dad and mom while he works. And we will be celebrating Ben's 30th birthday while in MI. We are looking forward to the trip and spending quality time with family.
