Pulling up to the house late Friday night, my husband had to stop the car so we could stare at the new barn going up. My mother and father-in-law's house has always been an ever-growing project, from the mini-vineyard, to the squash patch, to the gazebo. The barn is the latest edition to the "family plantation".
Saturday we spent most of our time at a local corn maze - dodging the mud patches and chasing after my monkey niece. My other niece, and the newest member of the family, decided to hang out with warm grandpa for the day.

We also visited the Black River State Park. We decided on the theme of the day walking out of the woods that morning:
"This is so beautiful. I feel like I should be doing some kind of spell, or reciting an incantation or meditating or something. But you know what? Sometimes you just don't need all that. Sometimes things are just really good on their own."
