Ohio Has Kept us Busy!

Yes I have been very bad about adding post to the blog, but it's too late now and I have to catch up sometime, so here it goes...again.

The Towpath:
This is my new favorite place to walk. It is this really beautiful walking trail that is really close to my house. Jax loves to go, of course, and he has met a lot of friends on the trail.

This is the river that is right by the trail which makes it even more Beautiful.

Cake Bites:
One night for Relief Society Heather taught us how to make these really cute cake bites. They were so yummy and were so fun and easy to make.
Here are a couple of mine, not perfect but you get the idea.

Three great friends. Heather, Lindsey and Me.

Fall in Ohio:
So fall is my favorite time of year and I have been looking forward to it since we got to Ohio. There are so many trees and when they started to change colors you would never believe how gorgeous it is. The pictures don't do it justice and I didn't take any pictures when the colors were really vibrate and pretty. I meant to but I didn't think about it until I was driving on the freeway at 70 mph and I don't think it would have been very safe to grab my camera from my purse and start shooting photos. You'll just have to come visit us next fall if you want to full effect.

These pictures are of our back yard. It is what I get to look at every time I look out the windows. Depressing uh? :)

Ok, so this one is when we were driving. Clint was driving so we were ok. Sorry about the cars but you can still see all the tress behind them.

More from the road.

The John Johnson Farm:
Clint was so nice and took off an entire Saturday of studying and we went to the John Johnson Farm in Hiram Ohio. It was a gorgeous day and there was such an amazing spirit there. It's just so fun being so close to so many church history sites where so many things happened.
Here is the Johnson's house.

This is the room where Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon saw a vision of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father when they were translating the Bible.

The front of the house.

The Zips Game:
Later that night we attended our first (and probably last) Akron Football game. It was a cold night and even though we dressed warm, we were kind of bored and tired so we left after the first half.
The new stadium. I think it looks bigger in the picture than it does in real life.

Cute Clinton James.

Clint and me waiting for the game to start.

They had some pretty cool fireworks going off, that was unexpected.

P.J. Party:
One Friday night one of my friends had a little girls night. We played some games and ate yummy food and here are only a few pictures I took.
Beth and Krystal

Krystal's mom and Katy. When we first got there Krystal's mom was dressed up like this,acting like a fake stuffed old lady. Then she would slowly scare people. It was really funny.

The Oddish Village, I mean Amish Village:
One Saturday Lindsey and I went to a couple of the Amish Villages that are an hour away. Clint was studying and Andy was in DC at a conference. We had a blast and the scenery was of course beautiful.
A real buggy on the road.

Lindsey and her kids Ben, Emily and Annie.

They had a pet shop and I was so tempted to buy Jax a friend.

The petting area. I opted to stay outside and not get all dirty, but this little goat wouldn't leave me alone.

Lindsey was much braver and went inside and fed the animals.

Here is the goat that wouldn't leave me alone, doesn't it kind of look like a lady?

A view of the landscape.

Lindsey and I, we were trying to get the pretty trees behind us, but I guess they were too far away.

Amish Day with Clint:
So a couple days after Lindsey and I went Clint was home from school sick. So I talked him into going to the Amish county with me so he could see how beautiful it is. Here are some pictures from that.

I thought it was kind of funny that they had Marie Osmond stuff there.

Jax and Laundry:
So the other night I was folding Laundry and Jax loves to sleep in clean laundry. Well he was tired and wouldn't go to bed so instead he got on the hard table and slept in the folded laundry. It was pretty funny.

And that about covers some of the stuff we've done.

I love your post and all the pictures! I think Ohio has the prettiest fall season around! I love the towpath trail, we will have to go with you sometime. We also love Amish country, we go down there with my dad a lot and eat at the Amish Door restaraunt, they have yummy food...Jax is cute as ever, we will have to get him and Shadow together for a puppy play day! I hope you are feeling better!

Those trees ARE beautiful! By the time we got up the canyon this year, the leaves had all turned brown. So thank you for the color fix! I need those colors YEARLY!

I love that you guys live so close to church history sites, and that you VISIT them! Keep doing it, and keep posting! They are awesome!

Aubrey said...

I love the walking path you take. Looks so beautiful and I bet all the colors right now put you right in the mood for fall!

Lindsey said...

Wow! So much we have done this past month! Can I just copy this post and put it on my blog? :) So glad you are here!!!

Lots of fun stories and pictures. We need to go to the John Johnson Farm and more of Amish country. I think I'll wait till spring or next fall. So pretty and Jax is too cute in the laundry.
