Weekend re-cap

This weekend we went up north for the day to help my grandparents. They live in the country/woods on 80 acres. They have never had heat in their home. Every winter they heat with a wood stove in the basement. So every fall my grandpa goes in the woods and cuts firewood and hauls it home. This is getting harder for him especially since this year he had both hip replaced. Its too much. My uncle has been helping him the past few weekends so this time we deicded it was our turn and it was so fun! Fun and rewarding! I feel good knowing I was able to help them. So here's a few shots from the weekend.

Sorry the trees aren't prettier. All of our fall colors have fallen already due to strong winds and storms we have had. So now we will have leafless boring trees till spring. But Minnesota is still beautiful. I was looking at these pictures and thinking the view alone from my grandparents house is spectacular. I'm reminding myself to not take those things for granted. Yesterday all the sudden it got cold. I wore a jacket and gloves to work this morning.I hope you all had a fun fall weekend.
