Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

What's up with us??

Sunday, we made a trip to a local Cherry Orchard. We try to make it each year to pick some of the wonderful Michigan Sweet Cherries that grow here. They are so good and it makes for a fun family outing.

The cherries were $1.50/lb this year. We picked four buckets full or 30 pounds worth. What does a family of four do with 30 pounds of cherries?? Well, we eat a lot, but not that many!! LOL! We make them into sauce. We pit them and boil them down, add a little cornstarch and freeze them. Mid-winter, when it is bitter cold outside and there are no sweet cherries to be found, we enjoy a breakfast, or sometimes a dinner, treat of Belgium waffles with warm sweet cherry sauce. Yummmmy!

(And when you pick your own? Of course you have to eat a 'few' along the way! :) )

On Saturday, I finally followed through on Paul's Christmas gift...from 2007! There is a place about 30 minutes north of us that does Paraflights. Paul has been dying to go for quite some time. He absolutely loved it...even if it took a year and half!! LOL!

While we were there, we took the girls to Lewis', the local Farm Market and Petting Zoo. This place is always fun for the girls and they keep adding new things all the time. This time we paid for the girls to have wristbands so they could jump all they want on this huge 'pillow'. They also love the new tube slides that were put in this summer.

I'd say we had a pretty fun weekend. :)
