A Weekend in August

We had a nice August weekend.

Friday, my son and I met a family we know from church for a "play date" at one of my favorite parks.

The kids ran from one destination to the next and had a good time.  

We climbed the "tree house" tower; I'd guess it's about 30 - 40 feet tall.  

This is the view from the top looking northeast toward Kettering; a portion of the Miami Valley.

We had a picnic lunch and the kids saved pretzels and bread crusts to feed the turtles.

I didn't get too many photos this time around.

On Saturday, I asked my husband if he could get our bikes in working order while I went to the grocery store.  

I was pleasantly surprised when I got home.  He had a flat repaired, all the tires pumped up, and the bike rack ready to go.

We drove to the Lebanon bike trail and started down the path.  It was a beautiful day and the humidity was low for August.

There wasn't a lot to see on this part of the route, so we'll try another portion of the bike trail soon.  The photo above is a Warren County government building as seen from the trail.

Yesterday, we moved furniture around in the lower level rec room and cleaned out some of dear son's toys.

Both a fun and productive weekend.

Happy Monday!


Next on the list is getting the school room in order!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend with all the new things you did. Those are the best weekends, not the some ole' thing. : )

  2. Sounds like a wonderful family weekend, Heather :-) That tower is really cool! Good luck getting ready for school; we just started back today after a unusually long break.

  3. Hope you enjoy your bikes. We've sure enjoyed riding ours these past three weeks or so. Fun and good exercise too. I sorely need that!

  4. Wonderful weekend with lots of precious moments. The summer has flown by so quickly, schoolroom already!
