We’ll be right back. We’re heading back out to Duck, North Carolina in the Outer Banks. We love it out there and we had such a fun time in August that we wanted to go sit on the beach again before we lock ourselves inside our house for the winter.

Follow along on our Flickr, our YouTube and maybe our our Instagrams if we can get back into it. But I wouldn’t hold your breath. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธโค๏ธ

Pure Michigan.

We drove up north for a long weekend in Michigan to visit my parents…

Even though we’re still firmly in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still managed to get out to do a surprising amount of stuff…

We sampled some terrific beers that my parents gathered on their travels like New Belgium’s Atomic Pumpkin. We went out to VerHage Fruit Farm and Cider Mill for donuts and fresh apple cider. We had lunch at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe and Presidential Brewing and COVID Carryout dinner from Four Rose’s in Plainwell. We also got Biggby Coffees and Sweetwater’s Donuts. And most importantly, we got to hang out with my parents because it’s been way too long since we’ve seen them. It was a great weekend. We hope the powers that be can curtail the pandemic soon and we can get up to Michigan more often next year. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธโฌ†๏ธโค๏ธ

Willshire Drive-In.

On our way up to Michigan, we stopped at the Willshire Drive-In

Genifer got a Oreo Flurrie and I got a butterscotch malt…

And she got a cheeseburger basket…

I got corn dogs because I love corn dogs…

The stuff at Willshire Drive-In was terrific. I love little ice cream shops like this. Everything is always amazing. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

We’ll be right back. We’re heading to Duck, North Carolina in the Outer Banks with Genifer’s family. We’re really excited to be leaving the house to go someplace other than the grocery store or Taft’s Brewpourium.
