This year was one of adventures. Mary and I went to some new places to explore what there was to see. In June we went back "home" to Oregon for a week of catching up with friends and family and going back to many of our favorite places. We also went to Holland Michigan for the weekend. We got to see a lot of Michigan on the way up and back. One of our stops on the way home ended up being the Round Barn Winery. It was the perfect stop on the perfect day to have lunch on the patio (picture of Mary below). We decided we need to go back there next summer to explore the other wineries in the area. We found some other great places along the way in some of the day trips we took too like Hicksville OH, IKEA near Cincinnati OH and the nice Premium outlet mall north of there. After my Admin conference in July in Brown County in southern Indiana, we toured some wineries down there as well.
We are really looking forward to some more great new adventures in 2015. Already have a trip in the planning process for Oregon as well as Las Vegas with some friends of ours to celebrate a 50th birthday. Hoping to get back up to Michigan again too!
