i always encourage my family to come visit at this time of the year where they could experience the splendor of autumn.  fall foliage is truly gorgeous and fun activities abound.   the array of colors stirs awe and wonder especially for someone who comes from the tropics where trees are lush green almost all year round.

my cousin and her daughter were here for a short visit.  i’m glad they experienced a bit of everything and reveled in the magnificence of the trees before they shed their leaves.  we had such a marvelous time together and it was fun showing them around, both in the city and in neighboring quaint towns.

we all wished they stay much longer but family members in other states are eager to have them as well.  we are all grateful for the gift of family and the wonderful time spent together.   mother and daughter are now in california, enjoying plenty of sunshine.

    Nice blog, Wilma. Nice pictures too. That castle looks a bit out of place in Chicago
