We traveled to lower Michigan last week/weekend for a family wedding. I wanted to share a few pics from our time there!

The drive down was VERY pretty! The leaves have started changing colors and all the red, orange and yellow trees make me so happy! (I was the driver at this point in the trip so sadly I didn’t get any pics). We also seen rainbows 4 different times with the off and on rain and sunshine!

We got in late Wednesday night- and the bed at the hotel felt pretty amazing after 9 hours in the car with a 2 and 4 year old. The kids usually both travel really well in the car.. but the day before we left I brought Rosie in to the docs because she was having trouble breathing due to a cold. We found out she had a little bit of pneumonia in one of her lungs. They put her on antibiotics and a steroid and we gave her nebulizer treatments every 4 hours. The steroid always makes her crabby.. so she wasn’t the happiest in the car.

The next day we ate breakfast at the hotel. We stayed at a Hampton Inn- it’s pretty much my favorite hotel for many reasons. They wash their duvet covers, they have the best breakfast and all the ones I have stayed at have been clean and updated! #notsponsored. After that I ran into Marshall’s quick while my husband waited in the van with the kids.. and I came out empty handed. It’s so hard to shop under pressure! Later my husband had an appointment and then we hung out at our hotel.

On friday we visited a Cider Mill with cousins! If you’ve never been to a Michigan Cider Mill in the Fall.. you are missing out!! They have the best apple cider and homemade cinnamon and sugar donuts! I may or may not have polished off 3 donuts in one sitting.. the one we went to had farm animals, a big outdoor play area, hayrides, apple picking, etc. It’s the perfect place to go for a Fall outing with the fam!

Saturday was wedding day but we didn’t have to be at the church til 3 PM. I ran into Homegoods quick and found a few things for an upcoming project that I will share with you very soon! One of the challenging parts about traveling to the city (when you’re from a small town)… is you have to try to fit in all your shopping while you’re there! The closest TJ Maxx and Target are 2 hours from where I live.. soooooo, when you’re a shopper, you gotta hit at least a few stores!

Anyways, it was an absolute perfect day for a wedding! The wedding was beautiful and we enjoyed seeing our out of town family and friends! We had a late night visiting with cousins and the following morning we got on the road by 8 AM to make the long trip home.

I always love to travel, but it always feels so good to be home! Also, I love my own bed and my own bathroom! TMI??! I don’t care, it’s true!!
