Weekend in Michigan

My mom was in Michigan last week visiting her mom and sister.  Luckily, I was able to go up there for the weekend and see them.  It was a fun weekend, but as always it was too short.  We mainly just hung around eating and talking.  On Saturday, we did drive up to Houghton Lake to go to this amazing craft store called Arnie's.  I could have spent A LOT of money there and had to limit myself majorly.  It was definitely fun.

So it was a little windy right by the lake and it was COLD!!!  The wind makes them look a little scary in the picture below, but I still like it :)

It was a beautiful drive especially this time of year.  If only fall could stay around much longer...

My mom drove up to Michigan, so I was FINALLY able to get the painting she did for us.  It's huge and I LOVE IT!!  She's been done with it for probably a year now and I'm so grateful I have it now.  She did such a good job.  Here's a picture of it:

It was a fun weekend!  I can't wait to be able to see my mom again.  I don't get to see her enough.  Thanks for the fun weekend and the beautiful painting :)
