Changing Seasons

Dear Reader,

One of my favorite seasons in Michigan is the fall. The best part is picking apples, pumpkins and eating donuts and apple cider. Last year I tried my hardest to find a pumpkin patch in Utah where I could fulfill any or all of those requirements. And what I found was a huge disappointment. Luckily, I was home in Michigan for labor day weekend when the orchards open for the fall! It was wonderful.

We had to ride a tractor to get to the place where we picked the apples.

Our loot.

What a pumpkin patch should look like, Utah. Don't advertise picking a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch if you plan on just putting a bunch of pumpkins together in a pile. It's really not that exciting.

A corn maze.

There was a part of the cider mill that was for children. I'm going to say it was at least ten times more exciting than the children's attractions at the place I went to in Utah. I mean, seriously, Utah. A box filled with corn kernels? That doesn't exactly scream fun to me. Michigan's cider mill had a bounce house. I'm just saying.

This was the most delicious donut I've ever eaten. I am now ready for fall to begin.


  1. Now I'm really craving cider. And a functional fall pumpkin experience. This is your fault.

  2. The most delicious donut you've ever eaten?? Really? I mean, it was a good donut, but the best you've ever eaten? Wow.
