To some, Ohio probably sounds like a yucky place to live. Weather that changes on a dime, no cool, hip big city to go shopping or clubbing or dining. Nothing special. I completely disagree. I love where I live. I love the seasons. I love the friendliness of the people. Most of all I love how we can drive for 2.5 hours and feel like we’ve discovered nature’s paradise. Even in October.
We hiked. And hiked. And hikes. We saw perfectly symmetrical ferns, cool mushrooms growing on a tree, a tree that grew in a loop, small yet beautiful mountains covered in a kaleidoscope of fall colors, even a waterfall. The boys climbed in and out and on top of caves and trees. We found cool stone grooves formed by glaciers eons ago. Enjoying nature was all we did.
We even had time to hang out in the camper playing cards, cuddle in our pjs watching our favorite movies, fling bean bags for a game of cornhole and sit around a fire and tell spooky stories. Oh, and don’t forget the best part, little boys get to pee outside.
We escaped. We spent time just the five of us.
We even splurged and went out to eat at a restaurant with this as the view.
So my only question is, when are you coming to visit?
