This past week has been miserable. Philip missed a week of school because he couldn’t go a day without throwing up. Then he was kind enough to share his stomach virus with me, so I spent Thursday and Friday at home sick, too.
But by Friday, we were both on the mend, enough so that I decided to take advantage of the great weather on Saturday. Philip and I drove to Buckeye Woods Park, the site of the 31st Annual Pioneers in the Park. From vendors to an old-time baseball game to demonstrations of living and working from days gone by to a hammered dulcimer performance, there was plenty to see, smell and hear. The park district also had a children’s craft tent where Philip created a necklace from buckeyes and beads.
All the fresh air and fun activities was just what we needed have being cooped up all week. We had a such a great time, this event is going on my list of annual things to do. In fact, since it continues through today, we just might go back for more.
This event coincided with the annual Medina County Fall Foliage Tour. Stop by next Sunday to see more photos from other stops on the tour.
