THE HELGESONS | ONEIDA APPLE ORCHARD | GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN

It seems like all we are doing during the fall is picking apples. Cole eats so many apples, this kid should never have to worry about liver or skin issues for a lifetime. Our hands down favorite location is the Oneida Nation Apple Orchard.

THE HELGESONS | SUMMER VACATION | MACKINAC ISLAND, MICHIGAN - DAY II

The second day of vacation was our first day spent on Mackinac Island. We woke up in our vintage strip motel on the beach with the sun beaming down on the water. We quickly headed to the docks to board the ferry over to the Island and arrived hungry.

THE HELGESONS | HILLSIDE APPLES WITH FAMILY | CASCO, WI

Cole's Gigi & Poppy came to visit us and we spent some time picking out the best pumpkins and munching on some apples. Hillside Apple Farm has a great assortment of pumpkins and varieties of pumpkins to choose from. We found out Wisconsin pumpkins are much cheaper than Missouri ones. One pumpkin in Missouri cost the same as all 4 pumpkins we bought here. Win!!! After finding the most unique pumpkins we ventured to Point Beach and walked the shore finding gemstones and playing in the sand.
