Over the past couple weeks our family tried to squeeze as much time out of what was left of summer as possible. We ended up doing and seeing things that we hadn't ever as a family even though they are right around the cities. Stay-cationing, I believe is the hip term for that these days.
I'll only highlight a few...
The kids and I helped herd these sheep at a working farm that's part of the local park system. It was quite funny...we were just there for a walk and to buy some produce and eggs when they asked if we could help. When do city kids get the chance to do something like that?!?
We stopped by beautiful Minnehaha Falls Park on our way to a museum one Saturday. Neither of us had been there since we were kids ourselves. It's so beautiful that we have it on our list to see once more of the leaves start to change.
After a walk around the falls area we went to a one of a kind
military museum that is sadly scheduled to close at the end of the
month. It really awesome to walk around all of those old vehicles...peek inside...
Of course, I took hundreds of pictures of a multitude of subjects in a multitude of other places but I won't bore you with them all. I just wanted to say hello and that I'm back online...no thanks to our cable company who kept me offline for 5 days longer than I expected. GRRR!
Next time I'll show you some new art...
