Long (but never long enough) weekend

A football-game-watching, architectural-site-seeing, camping-in-the-woods road trip. Plus my birthday.


rolling hills

yes, they fire those muskets

my new blue baby

the first ride!

1. A late-night stop for donuts in Columbus, Ohio. Because it is always a good time for donuts, especially after a victory. (Other Columbus food recs: Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream, where I had a surprisingly delicious scoop of the sweet corn with blackberry, and Northstar, with a super veggie burger and the best ginger ale I've ever tasted.)
2. The view from Kentuck Knob (we also went to Fallingwater). Rolling hills and old built-on-the-hillside towns are such novelties for a prairie girl.
3. Two of the rangers at Fort Necessity. All dressed in British soldier gear...they end the presentation by firing one of the muskets!
4. and 5. Happy birthday to me! A pretty blue vintage Schwinn with fenders and a basket! Thanks, Adam!

Happy Birthday Sarah! Best wishes from all of us over here.
I love the Schwinn - the color is beautiful - and I know that is a very comfortable bike.
Okay - the multimedia explore tour over at the Fallingwater site is fabulous! Reminds me to put that back at the top of my list of places to visit.

I have a 1973 Schwinn Breeze too! It's magenta though. My husband bought it for, stating that all good things were made in 1973 (the year he was born, ha!) I need to find a basket for mine!!
