Labor Day week with my Sister

After picking up my sister from the airport my hubby decided to take a detour since the traffic was slow. He took us to a wonderful Italian restaurant "Cafe Borgia". We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere so much, we were even taking pictures of the bathroom.
One of our many outings during the week. A stop at our favorite hamburger joint. Culvers. My sister with our parents.

Poppal and the great-grand kids...Noah, Gray, Ivy & Carter....at the River walk in Portage, Labor Day evening.
Gray picking apples at County line Orchard. He was king for the day.
I love this picture even though I will probably be yelled at for posting a back side picture. My sister, Ivy & Steph.
Steph, Ivy & Diane on the River walk, Labor Day evening. It was the most perfect night.
Diane, mom and I on Labor Day. We looked tired, cause we were! We had a family reunion all week long and made the most of every minute we could.

My sister and I at the Orchard. What a gorgeous day it was. We rode the tractor to pick apples and went to the kids farm and saw a bunch of cute animals. Steph, Gray & Ivy joined us. Our parents hung around in the big barn. Afterwards we went in the smaller barn for lunch. It was homemade and delicious.
Our view from the tractor ride after apple picking.

Ivy never sat so still. She didn't want to get off of the tractor ride. She insisted on sitting next to Aunt Diane. They became best friends.
Ivy and Aunt Diane had an instant connection. I love how she has her hand in Diane's lap and the loving hand on top of it. Precious!
It was the best Labor Day week having my sister home. It was so sad to say good-bye to her yesterday. I can only look forward to our next time together.
