I love exploring small cities. We spent a day biking and enjoying spring weather. Billy got to experience a day of fly fishing in the Smokey Mountains, while I was exploring the local art museums. It was a lovely week.
On our way I made Billy get off the highway to check out Metropolis, IL. This statue stands outside of the city hall court house. Hilarious-right?!
We spent our first afternoon with Amanda our daughter-in-law. I FORGOT to get a photo so she sent me this one which was taken right before James' deployment. In the right hand corner of the photo you can see a paper chain which Amanda created. There is a link for every day James is gone. It was 2 months smaller when we visited!
I was attracted to this next piece because of the spools of thread.
Then I read the description...
and was amazed!
The best part of the 3 day get away was wearing flip-flops the WHOLE time we were there!
We completed the trip with a visit to our son George at Miami of Ohio campus. I dropped Billy off for his senior dad's weekend. I am sure I do not want to know what the Dad's of seniors and college boys did last night!
Back to work tomorrow.
Have a wonderful week!
