Our final day in Michigan arrived and I realized I had not taken any pictures of the beautiful fall colors like I had hoped! To remedy this situation my mom pulled over on the side of the road on our way home from Mass that morning and we hopped out of the car and took these pics 🙂 I think they turned out pretty nice for just picking a random spot on the side of the road! Glad we were able to make it happen! PS wish my dad had been with us! He drives to Mass separately because he’s a sacristan and has to get there early. Oh well, next time!
While in Michigan we celebrated my bday a little early. Luke had me totally fooled about my gift. He had dropped subtle hints that he had gotten me something totally different so I was completely surprised and so excited that he actually got me exactly what I wanted which was a really nice tripod! I love how happy he looks in the pics below…he’s so happy he could make me happy! Love my hubby!Below is a family photo we took with my new tripod! Worked like a charm 🙂 PS we missed you Paul and Lauren!Later in the afternoon we all drove to Frankenmuth which is a town in Michigan known for it’s Oktoberfest! No one could believe that my parents have lived in Michigan for 10+ years and have never been to Frankenmuth! It was a first for all of us. Of course before we could do anything we had to stop at Bronner’s where it’s Christmas all year round!After Bronner’s we headed to the Bavarian Inn for a yummy German meal 🙂
Luke and I just got back from a little vacation visiting my parents. It was so nice to have a break from work and to experience a change in the season. It was a tad cold for this Florida gal but I absolutely loved seeing all the beautiful fall colors! Wish we could have stayed longer 😦 Our first day there we went to Westview Orchards to pick up a yummy pie! Luke picked out a Very Berry pie and I’m told it was delicious! I’ll be posting some more pics from our trip tomorrow 🙂
