OH MY MR BOOPIE WOOPIE BOO!! up close and personal!! LOL little angel!!

just got the cart unloaded and camp set up.

sitting in the line up for the annual tractor cruise to town

Our golden jubliee

On our way to the lineup

My hubby's great grandfathers H (aint she a beautie)

Were back home and our VACATION was great!!

What a week!! we had beautiful weather and the tractor show was a huge event this year it was bigger than ever!! We met the nicest couple next to us and then met a couple next to my inlaws that we became friends with.

there are over 150 tractors and doodle bugs that participated in the annual tractor cruise to town. What a fun time we took one of our little hay trailers in back of the H and loaded my inlaws, a couple of friends and a couple we met that camped next to us, went to town then rode along the lakeshore, back to town and then to dairy queen for ice cream!! YUMMY too!!If you go to one tractor show/flea market in sw michigan it should be this one!! The group puts on a terrific show and there is also live old steam engine pulled sawmill demos, a blacksmith making things in a forge, a shingle mill, antique and hot rod tractor pulls, steam engine steamed sweetcorn, bingo, cake walks, hit and miss engines, TONS of all colors and kinds of tractors running around, the flea market where I am sure you are bound to find something you cannot live without!! LOL, camping, rides around the grounds on a tractor pulled people mover and lots more!! Definetly worth the trip~

So tomorrow is back to work at the kitchen for me to get ready for market on thurs~~and I mean work I have nothing ready for this weeks markets but that is ok I will catch up~~

The leaves are starting to change round here and the squash is ready and oh so tasty~ We made some while camping, I took the acorn squash, cut in 1/2 cleaned her out and put in butter (real sweet cream butter only) brown sugar, and a couple of slices of fresh bacon on top. Bake til soft and ENJOY!! we also made some stuffed with a sausage filling that was yummy too.

It is a glorious time of year but always makes me a bit sad as winter even though I love love love the snow~ just lasts so lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggg!! but boy once the leaves start with all the color shows we get it is absolutely stunning!! love the smells, the leaves burning, the crisp mornings, apples, cider, pumpkins and of cource scarecrows!! LOVE the FALL!~!

Well have a blessed evening and will chat more soon!!
Oh I will post some pics when it is unloaded but we are the proud new owners of another little tractor~~~a waukesha. Have to do some reasearch on her as we dont know much about this little cutie.
