My Heart, our Stomachs… Ohio

While I’m sitting in this car, I’m going to backtrack a bit to our stay in Ohio. We stayed just a little over 3 weeks. Mostly to visit family, spend time with dear friends and of course indulge in our favorite gastric treats. Since all of our kids were born in Cincinnati, it only seems fitting that they’ve been feasting on nearly all their favorite establishments. Graeters, Skyline Chili, Buffalo Wings and Rings and the list goes on!
We came in on a rainy day. Actually, we went through a blinding rainstorm. It was a white knuckle trip for about 150 miles. I was a mess because we discovered our Arizona native trailer has never really seen rain. Yeah, she’s got a few leaks that we would have never known about. I guess we do now 😉 and I suppose that’s our next project for Silvia to replace some of the failing seals around the vents and windows.

Ahh… lets see, what else? Oh! We drove up to the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio and took a tour. What a cool piece of history! Definitely worth a day trip to see it. The kids even got a shot with the one and only “Gold” airstream.

I tell you, three weeks seemed like a long stay when planning but it went by so fast. We spent time with family in Cleveland, enjoyed the Clermont County Fair and Fireman’s Parade and had a great time at a good old Catholic Summer Festival.

Yeah… Life is Good! So grateful to be living it!


Look where we’ve been!

I’ll admit my blog posting on this trip has been sparse. We’re halfway through our trip and I’ve found using instagram has been the easiest way to capture our travel moments rather than going through my blog. I’m trying to figure out how to get them to just post to since I update through IG frequently. Hmmmf… We’ll see how I do with this.

Currently we are driving from Duluth, MN towards Fargo, ND. Wilderness, pines and birch trees for miles it seems. And as our relatives in Duluth mentioned, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes. They weren’t kidding! Weather can change in the blink of an eye. It’s a peaceful stretch of road and I feel so blessed to share these experiences with my family.
