Brown County Weekend

When Greg I went to Brown County last fall, we vowed to bring the kids back to also experience the ease of relaxing away from technology and the hustle and bustle of day to day living. We started shopping around for a cabin and decided to invite one of our favorite families to join us. We were thrilled when they agreed. It was perfect with the exception of the weather which could only be described as smoldering.
This play structure was incredible. We combated two long hot afternoons climbing here.

Random sculptures, paintings and artwork is on display throughout Columbus. It's a beautiful city.

There was one wasp sting. I was well supervised as I tended to it.

Brian was "reasoning" with Josie. Josie is two. Nothing further needs to be said on the matter.

A water gun fight broke out and all the kids chose one target. Brian is a good sport.

A game of tag yielded similar results. Once again, Brian is a good guy.

The original cabin was built in the mid 1800's. Kate was fascinated to learn the one room was at one point the entire living quarters and similar to the one she's read about in Little House books. It had a lot of charm. The additions were also charming. Robyn and I both had kitchen envy. It was perfect for a large family or small group of friends to gather.

The barn out back led to a covered creek and large fire pit we didn't need this visit. It was simply too hot.

We attempted to wait up for the stars Saturday night. Our flashlights were ready for a walk across the street to a large pasture for best star gazing but the clouds rolled in at sunset and little people were worn out.

It was a peaceful ending to a perfect weekend.
