Hello! I am back from our long weekend! We were back yesterday but we had running around to do. We had a great time in Johannesburg! We even had a chance to face a fear for FREE!!! We took a drive to look at the fall colors and when we got to Boyne Mountain there was a sign that read: Free Skylift Color Rides. So, we decided to check it out. I couldn't believe that they were offering this for free! 3 of the 6 of faced our fears and decided it was possibly a once in a lifetime event. (The other 3 were not scared and were eager to hop on). So we got on the ski lifts for our very first and probably last times! LOL! Well, probably the last time for my hubby at least. I may try it again and our friend who was also, scared may try again.

A bit of a blurry photo from above. This is where my hubby said in a very scared tone...SIT STILL AND BE QUIET! LOL!!! I was excited and not scared until this point. Seeing him scared made me scared! Almost panic attack kind of scared! Yikes, I couldn't wait to get to the top of the mountain!
PHEW! We made it to the top! The view was amazing!!! We really enjoyed our adventure and were glad we did it even though we were so scared! I was much better on the way down (not hubby...poor guy)
This is my daughter's bf's great grandfather's cabin. We didn't stay in this one but it's really cool!
So, that was our pretty fall weekend! We visited a cool gift shop and hubby and dd's bf bought pocket knives and dd bought moccasins. Then we went in search of pasties...meat pies that are delicacies of the upper peninsula. We found them and had a yummy dinner :)
I hope you all had a great weekend too! Have a wonderful day! Hugs!
