i know we’re already into tuesday but i just thought reminiscing about the weekend was still in order. here’s our roadtripy, woodsy, campfirey weekend:
1. road hat ready 2. coffee goodness ready 3. auto tunes ready (get it?) 4. pit stop
we stopped at aullwood audubon center in dayton, OH for a little woods-walking leg stretch. i’ve driven past many-a-time and said “we should stop there some day.” well, saturday was the day. and i think i’ll put it on the trip agenda more often. we spent a brief time there and i think…i think i’m gonna like it there
and then we reached my parents homestead for a fun night with friends.
the great pumpkin
ghost marshmallows. bonfire tradition now i guess.
it was a pretty quick trip but great just the same. i was so happy to just enjoy everyone’s company and visit with kiddos. i gotta say an added bonus of labor support work is reunion time with the families you have supported in birth.
at the end of the evening darla, mike and i braved the cold for a campout. darla was all like “let’s tell spooky stories!” to which we decided against and settled on robots instead. the best we could come up with was a half-ass account of the jetsons. i think the highlight of my weekend was being snuggled under 20 blankets with my family as the cold air nipped my nose. i kept thinking how great it would be for us to just live in a tent!
yes, a tent. with wheels. called a winnebago. i’ll never give up this dream.

I always want to jump inside your pictures Elaine. So much fun. Missing that brisk Autumn!
thanks, lady. i’ll try to supply enough autumness to keep you involved vicariously :)
i love the aullwood pics! my parents live in dayton and we go there all the time.
thanks! have you been to the farm part of it? you’ll have to give me some ideas of which parts to explore. it seems so big that we only dabbled in one area.
