Hike @ Mt Airy in Cincinnati

What a beautiful day for a hike. We had heard about the tree house in Mt Airy and had never been to see it. It was really cute and afterwards we hiked the trail below it. There were some sweet little wild flowers.

Apple Picking with Friends

We had a nice field trip to Evan's Orchard for our fall apple picking. It sure smelled so good. Afterwards the girls played on the huge hay castle and jumped on the air pillow and played in the corn pit. Great place to visit and learn about the apple mill.

Learning about letter boxing

 We have recently learned about this cool hobby people participate in where you find hidden stamps and collect the different images from around the country. It really has been fun. We picked up an easy how to carve your own stamp book from amazon and now have made a couple. (remember to reverse words:)There are all kinds of different types of rubber to choose to carve. Some people make a theme of hand carved stamps like disney ones or fairy ones or nature ones so it's quite the adventure to collect ones from certain artists. Check out your local area for some hidden....Things to take with you. 1) note pad to stamp the design 2) ink 3) wet wipes 4) your own stamp if you made one to stamp into the book left by the artist 5)pen 6)a sense of adventure:) some websites to get you started are atlas quest and letterboxing North America
