The Summer Getaway Was… Here!

05 hanging aroundMary Lynn is my sister’s oldest daughter. She spent the first week of June with us. When she asked if she could drive up for a visit I said “sure, but I don’t think there will be much to do…” I was wrong. The first thing we did was play Golden Axe on my arcade machine. She was the Valkyrie, I was the Elf. After that we went in the backyard and she hung upside down on the monkey bars.valkyrieandelfThe rest of the week we did the following:
–went to Mickey’s Surplus where she bought dog tags, a backpack, and a grappling hook
–hiked 2 and a half miles over and under Johnson County streets
–found shade under an old canopy tree
–stared at murals by the clocktower
–discovered a concrete “submarine” in a local park01 mickeys gas02 the hike03 canopy treemurals06 the park sub

  1. Could you have packed in anything more? Sounds like fun to me.

  2. I wish I could have been there. I would have taken my bike to keep up.
