Up to 26 Pines to see my parents for an extended weekend. Last chance to stay in the Summer Palace before it gets winterized.
Mom and Dad shovelled on the spoiling, with Mom helping Madeleine make jewelry in Mom's craft room and Dad taking them for a spin in his newly-acquired Yamaha golf cart. Mom's cooking kept us stuffed and happy and I helped Dad with his storage business ("retired" being a relative term).
We also had a chance to enjoy Michigan in all her autumn glory, which has to be seen to be believed.
Oh, and Madeleine, Dale and Rachel all came down with impetigo.
