Non-crafty day

Hubby works with the FFA Agronomy CDEs and has been very busy since Valentine's Day. Last Saturday was the State contest and brings this season to a close. To celebrate now being free on Saturdays now we did a mini- vacation week-end. Saturday we took advantage of the beautiful weather and the Metro parks here in town. We started the day at the park with a turn of the century working farm. This is the house (Hunter's favorite part of the farm.) We watched the horse drawn potato planter in action, visited the barns, petted a 4 day old lamb, and swung on the swing hanging in the big tree beside the house. Hailey went to the top of the barn for a bird's eye-view of animals. Hunter was not the least bit interested in the pigs- the boy couldn't stand the smell. LOL

We left there and headed to another local park- the one with the pond. I grabbed a couple of the kid's ride on toys and they had a blast!

Our parks are all connected with paved trails, so after a quick ride on the toys we traded them for the wagon and used the trail to walk to another park- the one with the swings.
As soon as they had their baths we had two sleeping kids. They were wore out- in a good way!

Sunday they slept in so we didn't make church. We decided that we wanted another "adventure" day. This time we headed east, it is AMAZING what is within a 2 hour drive of Columbus.
This is Ash Cave. The kids really like it here!! The cave is so HUGE, and under the rock is the most amazing sand- Hailey's favorite part!! And at the end of the cave is this--

a 100' waterfall. This was mommy's favorite part!!

See daddy and Hunter? They are on the far left, that gives you an idea as to the size of the cave and the falls.

Looking at the cave and Cedar Falls I could not help but stop and thank God for his creation. It leaves me with an indescribable feeling knowing my Father created this and so much more. I am Blessed Beyond Measure...........

Until later~
