Fall Camping

We enjoyed a fun fall camping weekend with good friends!

We broke the no-TV rule of camping and actually had one set up outside most of the weekend.  We watched a hilarious movie, the U of M vs. State game, and the Lions game.  In between games, we went for a long bike ride, played pinochle and enjoyed some gorgeous walks. Cyrus loves his walks...but he may have a slight problem with authority.

Matt and I were up and out the door by 7:00 a.m. each morning for a sunrise kayak trip.  It was cloudy on Saturday morning, so we didn't get the spectacular color show we were hoping for.  But, Sunday was better...colder, but definitely worth the chilly wait!  I started emptying the motor home yesterday so we can winterize it.  They're predicting snow here for Halloween.  Yikes...that's scary!

I Love Fall

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the crisp air.  I love the fall colors.  I love Halloween.  I love this Halloween costume Keaton wore when he was 3.

Pretty Pumpkins

For my latest visit to the east side of the state, I made a few goodies to take (protein bars, chocolate-cashew clusters, buckeyes...and these cute little peanut butter pumpkins.)  This is why I'm the favorite aunt!

Keaton's "New" Car!

Keaton bought a "new" car last week!  It's a 2011 Lincoln MKZ and it's really cute.  (I don't think he'd like me calling it cute, but it really is!)  It's fully loaded with heated and cooling seats, a sunroof, and blue-tooth. Keaton is our practical planner.  He's been looking at used cars for months and months.  He wanted something with better gas mileage, but just couldn't seem to justify spending so much on anything brand-new. He ran the numbers hundreds of times and even made spreadsheets to track his spending.  He debated if he even wanted something now or if he should just wait a few more years.  He debated with us, without us, and with himself.  He finally decided to enjoy life and get something nice to drive now.  Now maybe I can talk Matt into having us enjoy life with a newer vehicle too!

New license plate.
