1. Apple Orchards, Pumpkin Patches, Cider Mills.
We've already hit 2 this year, and I know there are many more to come. Today we ventured to http://www.threecedarsfarm.org/index.asp. It was AMAZING! I had never been to this one before and I was thrilled. So MUCH for the kids to do. CLEAN bathrooms. Corn maze. And hay rides. I give this one a 10 out of 10!
Last weekend we went to http://www.plymouthorchards.com/. This one I would rate an 8 out of 10. There are farm animals, tractor rides, and yummy donuts. The only complaint I would have is the wait time for the tractor ride...little kids equals impatience, and the driver was completely unaware.
If I was a gazillionaire I would totally have one of each! Until then I will just drool over their fabulousness.
3. Holidays...as an adult they kind of suck. BUT I LOVE the holidays. The food, the gathering, family time. Greatfulness is in abundance this time of year. If it were just up to me I would already have my house decked in Christmas decor!
4. The weather. I no longer sweat every second. Michigan is so funny, last Friday it was 100 degrees, today 75 degrees, yesterday 60 degrees. Welcome to a Michigan Fall.
