Brett took the day off today so we spent the day at Brown County State Park. It is probably the closest thing to being in the mountains. It is beautiful, especially in the fall (although I think we were about one week too late). We packed snacks and grocery bags ("to collect nature":), the camera, the kids, and we were off.
Get ready for picture overload:
There were many "beautiful vistas" and Brett wanted to get a picture of one. No one like just scenic pictures so I took one for the team:)
We climbed up this fire tower. It was extremely high. The kids thought it was so cool. I was a little sick to my stomach when I looked down. All part of the adventure.
Have I ever mentioned that Tobe is not the most daring or adventurous of my children? He gets that from me. Poor guy!!
We stopped at a run down mexican restaurant and it was my idea to give it a try. It was yucky, so Brett made me get my picture in front of it.
On the way home we took the long route and saw a few other sites along the way. This is the World's Largest Rocking Chair. How cool!!!
To avoid rush hour (all of those who really know me will laugh) Brett took all the back roads to get us home. He's such a good sport. So it took us forever!! It was a long day and our car DVD player stopped working so we were back to the old school, "I Spy", "ABC Game", etc. but it was such a good day.
Just what this family needed--a little time TOGETHER!!!!
