A couple of weekends ago, I mentioned that we went to the mountains for a "mini" vacation. I thought I'd share a few pictures from that trip. I've been busy lately preparing and planning for our family's homeschooling year, as well as preparing for the school year for our local school group as a coordinator. Sandwiched between that, we've been working on planning my parents' upcoming 50th wedding anniversary reception on August 22nd. There's much to do and so little time. I thought summers were for taking it easy and relaxing and doing little!
Anyway, there will be little words and more pictures today. Since Joy is always the most willing subject, that's mostly who you'll see! I hope you enjoy them. During this little vacation to Mountain View/Blachard Springs, we visited the caverns, the creek, White River Hoedown Show, and The Ozark Folk Center. And no vacation is complete without alot of eating out, right?
Blanchard Springs Caverns (stalagtites and stalagmites everywhere....and bats...very educational):

At the one room schoolhouse:
We rode this swing that is powered by none other than a mule. Don't you know this was a very exciting thing in it's day? It really is a smooth, kind of swift ride!
Joy, the Prairie Girl....
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
