This is also a cross post. One thing that I should have mentioned is that this was kind of an exciting trip for me photographically speaking. It was the first time in almost 6 months that I have been excited to actually take pictures. It was a great feeling.
While summer ends socially on Labor Day and by the calendar on September 23 (this year). For me summer is officially at an end when we go to Maple Grove for our end of summer/beginning of fall fling. This year was a little different as it became an reunion of sorts for my family. Unfortunately, my youngest brother and his wife could not make it, but everyone else was there with bells on 🙂
The weekend started out with a dark cloud over the proceedings; I mean a literal dark raining cats-and-dogs cloud. However, Saturday morning the sun came out and fixed everything. For the rest of the weekend there was nothing short of weather perfection 😀
I was in charge of the dinner that night so I didn’t get many pictures in but the brisket pot roast was well received and I think I will have to do it again. (hint hint Belinda 😉 )
We went on several kid friendly hikes and had a great amount of fun hiking to the spring (where the kids were able to drink water as it comes directly out of the ground)
