This is another old farm that has been preserved for park land with lots of hiking trails.
Here is the back of the barn as we came upon it from the trails.

Here is the front and side of it. It's a simple barn, but I like the style and dark wood. The top of the silo isn't looking too good though!

This shed sits about 60 feet from the barn. It looks like it may have been a chicken coop at one time.
The property was beautiful to hike, and the barn was an extra bonus!

Tonight I am sharing some of my best pictures ever with you.
Monday morning my first grandchild was born!
Her name is Alaina Jo and I think she is just beautiful.

She weighed 7 lbs 8 ounces and was 20 inches long.
She has brown hair, long fingers and toes and cheeks that were made for kissing!
And if you couldn't tell - I'm in love!

"For you created my inmost being, you knit my together in my Mother's womb"
Psalm 139:13

Isn't this a beautiful barn? This is the Post Family Farm, a favorite destination for families and school groups around here. Kids come here to pick out pumpkins, see the animals and ride the pumpkin train. Adults come to eat their famous pumpkin donuts!

When they put new cement down near the donut area this summer, all the grand-kids of the owner got to put their footprints in it. There was even one cat footprint at the end!

We had our great-nephew over from Saturday to Sunday evening. What fun having a little guy in the house again!

This little barn is on a road I drive on a lot. I've always thought this barn is really cute, but when I noticed the trees changing color I knew it was time to stop and take a picture. I like it from the front but the view from the back is even better!

Don't you love that row of windows? I think it looks cute, nestled in the trees.

I went hiking with my sister at a nearby nature center. It was kind of cold and rainy, but we still enjoyed seeing the beautiful colors of Fall.

Here's another old barn that I drive by frequently. The barn is pretty typical, but I love the old tractor in front of it.

This little building is near the barn, set behind it in a field. I don't know what it was for, maybe an outhouse? It doesn't look like it'll be around for long. I think it's pretty cute though!

I'm participating in Barn Charm. For more charming barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

This was taken from the Au Sable lighthouse on Lake Superior.
We were halfway up the tower here.
