This past weekend my Sister Sarah trekked to Michigan, from Hoyt Lakes Minnesota, to attend a wedding. Since my parents were also attending, the three of them stayed with us for the weekend. In the spirit of family, my Brother Ben and his wife Emily came over for a filet mignon BBQ on Sunday. It was a gorgeous Michigan weekend, the type of weather for which people live in this state. On Friday, we took a trip to Wiards Orchard in Ypsilanti Township. The kids were fascinated by the animals and the hayride, albeit a little scared at first. Fall is here, and today it seems we made the transition rather quickly.
