Highlights from Ohio

Touring a Victorian House in Millersburg OH (no photos allowed inside).


Antique and thrift shopping.


These books are from 1899 and 1901.

Board games with Zack as the host (and realizing we are not Smarter than a Fifth Grader sometimes).


My Aunt Gay driving us through farmland and cornfields as me and Aunt Elaine tried to get the best photo we could of a hot air balloon overhead.

And then getting back to my uncle's place where we were able to get a close-up of a miniature version of the same thing.

Uncle Danny's homemade pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin.


Relaxing on the front porch watching the world go by.

Family time ... mom, Aunt Elaine and their sister Kathy. My uncle has the most gorgeous flowers on his front porch.

Sunsets at the end of the day.

We are back in Michigan and staying put for at least the next week. Hope everyone is having a great week. Peace & blessings, Tammy

Hi Tammy...Wow, those flowers on the porch ARE gorgeous. What a shame you couldn't take photos inside the Victorian house. . That is really too bad.I would have loved to have seen that decor. Glad you are checking in to my blog, visiting, and commenting. Have FUN with your sweet family. Susan

The flowers and pumpkin pie surely are delights for the eye...and tummy.

Keep relaxing and enjoying.
