Made it to Ohio

Big brother Gary reminded me this morning that every day is an adventure and that I should post even the smallest of adventures.  So we are here in Ohio visiting family and friends.  We left on Wednesday morning, the trip is an eleven hour ride and I would say during this trip 85% of it was rainy or foggy.

We arrived in Columbus around 6:00 p.m. picked up some dinner and dog food, yes we left Miss Millie's food at home and then headed over to Amanda and Kent's to share some dinner with them. We were greeted by our sweet Mr. Jacob.  I can't get over the joy I feel every time I see our grandsons faces and get to give them a big hug.

So in love with these guys.

Brice with Papa, oh how he is growing up so fast

Amanda and her sweet little boys.  

We enjoyed a wonderful visit with them and then headed over to the east side of town to my brother Gary's where we had planned to live for the next week or so.  So blessed to have a brother and sister in law that opens their doors to us every time we arrive.  On our ride there we were blessed with some outstanding looking cloud formations.  I do have a weakness for clouds.

Even though we are away from home I was going to make sure I kept up with my now normal routine of Millie and I taking our morning walks.  On Thursday I awoke early and we headed out.  Taking a walk in this neighborhood is certainly different than where we walk at home.  There were deer to see along with chipmunks, and cars.  Not used to the cars during our walk, but none the less it was a great walk.  After breakfast we headed over to our niece Faith's house to drop off the chest of drawers I fixed up for Jacob and a shelf I repainted for the boys to put their toys on. 

Chest of drawers I bought at a yard sale, cleaned it up, had Mike put some shelves in and painted it a nice clean white.

 You see Amanda, Kent and the boys will be moving in this Saturday with Faith and Tim.  Mike took off shortly after we unloaded to have lunch with a friend while I hung out with Faith to help with some home maintenance projects she had going on. Always enjoy my time with this lady.  

Later that evening I joined some friends from our old church in Ashville for dinner.  What an absolute wonderful time we had.  We talked and laughed and pretty much closed the place down.  Must do this again next time I am in town.

This morning I was greeted by beautiful sunshine, you see it has been raining pretty much for the past three days.  The sunshine was a welcomed site.  After my walk this morning I hung out on the screened porch with my cup of coffee and camera.  The light coming in was just wonderful so I started taking a few shots of things simply around me.

This afternoon we are off to visit more friends, drop off a couple of my "creations" and then head over to Amanda and Kent's to help move a few boxes and enjoy a nice dinner with them and Kent's parents.  It's going to be a great day!
