Life in the Midwest

Today we traveled through time... and lived a bit on the prairie. I love these days when we are able to truly embrace where we live... in the heart of the Midwest.

First a trip to pumpkin farm. This first shot is of Anderson playing in a Corn Box... Corn instead of sand... it felt so great to sink into the powdery, silky kernels!


Then we were off to try our hand at a new interest... Geocaching. This is a little off-the-beaten-path spot near Elburn, IL. It was a beautiful day today as you can see, and I felt like Laura Ingalls all day... the sights and sounds of this location constantly reminding me of her stories living on the Banks of Plum Creek in a dugout house. As far as the treasure hunting went... we found 2 of the 4 caches we were in search of.... not bad for a first time. Next time we will be braver and more prepared... and bring sunscreen and bug spray!

I grew up in Indiana, and I especially love the Midwest this time of year. I'm a TX girl now, so thanks for bringing back such great Midwest memories.
