Wow it's been a long time! I guess I'm terrible at keeping up with this. Anyway, last week we spent 4 days down at Mom's in West Baden Springs. Friday we went to Spring Mill State Park and had a picnic and then walked on the 2-mile "rugged" trail that took us back to Pioneer Village. It's an old village from sometime in the 1800's (it's terrible that I can't remember exactly). We got to go in the old houses, tavern, drugstore, mercantile, mill, blacksmith shop etc. I'm fascinated with the way people lived back then. Saturday we went to Lake Patoka and tried to walk on more trails, but weren't successful. The trail got smaller and smaller and then disappeared altogether, and we were tired of brushing ticks off. Sunday Eric and I stayed at our favorite hotel and took the historical tour. Everyday we were there was sunny and in the mid 80's. It was gorgeous with the purple dogwood trees and the leaves just coming out (I'm sounding too much like my mom now!) We came home Monday to a torrential downpour and jury duty on Tuesday...back to reality. It's so nice to get away from time to time.
