{ Some of Our Summer Adventures }

Sharing some more adventures from this past weekend! We toured the Henry Ford museum with our wonderful niece! The experience was charming & cute for miss Kayla!  We also took a trip & dip in the Spring Mill pond again, after all it was a perfect beach day with a perfect summers breeze!
Enjoy some more of our captured & crazy summer adventures !

My loves!

Kayla & 'her' Markie !

Ready for take off ;)

Driving miss Daisy haha { Ellis Island exhibit}

I told my husband I loved this cute kitchen so charming right?!

Hot Dog anyone?


I just wanted to share some pictures I've captured so far this summer on our little adventures. 

These are from a spring fed pond many of the locals like to use. The waters super clear & it's a quaint & clean setting! It's not the ocean ,but will do for us northerners :).
The cozy long winding woods road to get to the pond !!

 Not to shabby for a swimming hole { Spring fed pond}

Nature in all of it's glory !



My lovely hubby & I recently got to tour  a  historical home in downtown Wyandotte on the water! It's the historical Ford-MacNichol  home ! This home was breathtaking in itself! The craftsmanship was gorgeous. I wish they made homes like this these days! The parlor,dining rooms, attic & more were just magnificent! The molding & wood work could have had me there all day snapping pictures..Enjoy these lovely shots I was so gracious to be able to snap along the way!

**Be sure to stop in if you're in the Wyandotte area! It's an awesome & personal tour!

We could get used to this porch with a summery drink in hand ...;)

The vibrant parlor!

I loved the marble surround on this fireplace!! The charm went on for years in this home!

Cute stairs stepping down into the cutest bathroom!

The home had a total of 8 fireplaces, if I'm recalling correctly..
This is the dining room. Under the head of the tables space was a button that he/she would hit to alert the help they needed something. The button was disguised under the lavish rugs!

The butlers pantry!

This was located in between the butlers pantry & kitchen. It's the signal that I talked about in the dining room picture! Pretty nifty & genius for the mid to late 1800's!

Master bedroom & bath. The bath is a his & hers with a vanity just for primping { Pretty cool huh ladies ?}

I've always had a love for  attics, & this one was amazing! It was like every kids dream!! It was stunning- from the cylinder architecture to the wood floors & nooks!

One of the nooks in the attics looking over the road & to the water!

Downtown Wyandotte!

Hope you all enjoyed this mini historical tour! Be sure to stop back in for more of our summer adventures .
