Trip to Michigan-Post #3

Tuesday, Aunt Lola and family went home and came back on Friday. So, in the meantime, Logan and Kayley had lots of fun having Nana and Pop all to themselves!
Logan went with Pop to take pictures and measure a house for work. On the way home, they stopped for fries and an ice cream cone at McDonalds!
Nana told Kayley to say "cheese" and Kayley smiled really big.

Going to play outside
Kayley loved the big swing. Pop held on to her and she held onto the chain. Very fun.

Playing in the fort Pop is making for all the grandkids
Having hot chocolate when we got inside
Kayley loved having marshmallows!
Talking with Daddy on video chat one night
Wednesday we went to see Pop at his office. Logan decided to take a few phone calls while we were there.
Kayley wanted to ask about some insurance
Logan didn't know the answers to Kayley's questions so he had to get help from Pop
Logan was very excited about the HUGE pencil in Pop's office
Then Pop went with us and ate at the Pixi. YUMMY!
That afternoon, Mommy mowed some of the yard. She let Logan ride and steer before she started mowing. He loved it!
Logan helped Pop with the fort. He got a ride in the wagon.
Mommy broke the little wheel off the lawn mower. Oops!
Logan and Pop started working on a dog house for Puppy Brown Ears Ragland
Thursday, Pop took Logan to Uncle Harold's farm and rode in the combine.
Logan helped Uncle Harold fix the combine
Then took a little nap
Mommy found Kayley bouncing up and down on the exercise machine trying to make it work

October 10th, Mommy, Logan, and Kayley flew to Michigan for a week. Daddy had to work :(
Kayley is playing with Logan's puppy at the airport.
Pop picked us up from the airport and we went to Shepherd. Aunt Lola and the kids were there too. Sunday we all went to Uncle John's Cider Mill. Here's a picture of where they make the cider.

Elijah being nice to Kayley!
We got to eat yummy doughnuts!!
And drink delicious cider!!
Kayley ate some of her doughnut but then decided it was more fun to smash it.
Logan decided he liked dunking his doughnut in the cider
Kayley thought Pop's doughnut tasted good while Elijah ate his own
The grandkids in the school bus. We couldn't get everyone to look at the same time! Here's Aunt Lola holding up Evan at the end on the left, Eden, Kayley, Elijah, Ethan, and Logan

State Fair

Saturday we went to the Virginia State Fair. We were going to leave in the morning, but had to take Logan to the doctor for an ear ache. He had an ear infection coming on :(
We got there at 12:30 when it was super busy and warm!
Logan wanted to see a big big pumpkin and a little pumpkin. This is the 1st prize winner for biggest pumpkin and there is a little one right by it!
