Fall Fun in Minnesota

At the end of September I enjoyed a wonderful visit with the Bergs in their inviting home. Their neighborhood has great parks within walking distance, and lakes very close by. Catherine makes the most of nice weather, and she knows how to have fun!

I got a preview of the kids Halloween costumes!
The Bergs' dear family friends live in the same neighborhood, so we walked Frederick's friend and classmate home.
We picked some strawberries in September!

Frederick attends kindergarten at the school where Catherine taught. I got a quick tour of Frederick's classroom.
Catherine planned an apple picking outing at a farm. We rode in a wagon to get to the orchards, which had abundant apples on low hanging branches, perfect for the kids.

Catherine also planned a sightseeing tour on Lake Minnetonka. It was very beautiful, and we caught glimpses of multimillion dollar estates dotting the shoreline. (It's prime real estate since downtown Minneapolis is a ten minute drive away.)

Thanks Catherine! Wish the fall weather lasted longer!!
