Grand Rapids, Michigan

It was a full, but fun weekend for the Mazur family. My husband and I traveled to Grand Rapids, MI to celebrate a few family birthdays. My father-in-law is turning 65 and our nephew just turned 3. We chose Grand Rapids because it was equal traveling distance for each family and because there would be plenty of apple orchards to visit. If you are ever passing through Michigan and find yourself in Grand Rapids, visit Amway Grand Plaza. It was an awesome hotel! Also, be sure to hit up the downtown market. This market offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor market vendors. They also offer a ton of cooking classes. We decided it was best to visit the market in the morning and then travel to Schwallier's Country Basket for some apples. I can't say enough good things about this farm! It was the perfect activity for adults and children. I'm thinking this trip may need to happen each year!


The fall leaves were absolutely beautiful!
Be sure to take time to pop inside the store at Schwallier's Country Basket
for jams, jellies, cider, pies and donuts.




The farm had lots of animals, rides, and games for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Including this fun water game, which my niece and nephews seemed to love!
We ended our day with THE best apple donuts.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
