Quick Trip to Michigan

 Up before dawn to prepare for a visit to Michigan to see our son Michael.
 From a distance I hoped this was a turnip truck ;-)  but it was apples.
 Most of the trees are bare and the wispy clouds made for a beautiful sky.  It's about 4 hours to Mike and Amanda's.
We went to the Lansing City Market for lunch.  Mike is taller and thinner than I remember, but just as sweet as always. Mike's girlfriend Amanda was able to join us.  She knows her way around all of Michigan having grown up here.
 Had to get Dad into the photo.
 I loved the vibrant colors of the new construction.
 I had to take this one of my Dr. Who loving hubby in front of the phone box, not exactly the the Tardis (the blue British police box Dr. Who travels the universe in.) but as close as you get at a Cider Mill in Michigan.
 The orchard, even in November was beautiful.
 Looking at these photos I see my Mother in Mike's eyes.
We sang a happy birthday, more hugs and kisses and then back on the road home.
We had a great visit, always always too short, but sweet and filled with happy memories.  My baby is thirty! How the heck did that happen?

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.  Have a great weekend my friends and enjoy this beautiful day.
