In the middle of september, we headed up to my parents for a class reunion of mine. The girls loved the extra days of fun with grandpa and grandma. And I always love an excuse to spend part of fall in michigan!

We went a few days ahead of Daddy. He had a little something for all his girls waiting. : )
It's been so fun to watch the girls live some of my old memories as they grow up. They had a ball playing school in the basement - of course Ava was the teacher
Class in session!
Ava started driving the gator for the first time. I don't know WHY I expected her to start off cautious - after all, she has been the rider for her cousins for years who prefer to "off road it." She was a little speed driver - it was hilarious to watch.
The happy driver
Olivia woke up early that afternoon and had a ball being Ava's passenger
Playing on the swingset
Olivia's turn at the wheel - after a short spell she decided she liked cheering Ava on more
On saturday, we had a gorgeous day to spend at my favorite cidar mill and apple orchard
