Favorite Things Friday—Fall in the Country

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to take a drive out in the country. Destination = small town. And it's so much better if it's a sunny day. Last Saturday was perfect.

The leaves are finally ablaze.

We went to Owosso, where we had lunch in a family restaurant and bought candy at the five-and-dime. Carol found Canadian peppermints. She was thrilled.

On the way home we stopped at a farm...

...where we were met by Gourd Guy. He encouraged us to purchase some gourds and pumpkins.

I purchased several gourds, which were soon thereafter eaten by evil squirrels.

Carol really really wanted one of these...

... but we couldn't lift them, so she had to settle for a large instead.

A great day.
