Utopia in Ohio

We made it to Ohio, safe and sound. Thanks to The Backyardigans, our trip was fairly easy.

We've had a great time visiting family. It is so fun to see Evie interacting with her aunts, uncles, cousins, and Grandpa.

The "country life" is so appealing. Evie is a suburban girl, but she loves it here. Tonight, we went for a walk in Aunt Shari and Uncle Luke's backyard. We picked green grapes right from the vine, which Evie HAD to try, and promptly spit out! They also have lots of fruit trees, so we picked baby apples and beautiful miniature pears. All were unripe at this time of year, of course, but the girls ate a few bites anyway. We also discovered a pecan tree, and Daddy cracked the thick green outer hull open with a hatchet!

We're off to the County Fair tomorrow!

So glad you made it there! What fun!

I hope you are having a great time! The idea of fruit trees makes me think of Grandma's yard. :)

Give Evie a hug for me.
