Prepare yourself for pictures

Okay, here are some of my favorite pictures from our vacation last weekend. Good luck making it through all of them!!!
I take this picture on every trip. As you can see, Stephen simply tolerates it:

I wanted to jump in this pile of leaves:

This trail led to neither a beaver nor a dam:

This is our stick race, like in Winnie the Pooh*:

Stephen won. Boo. :(

If you look closely, you'll see the crane we spotted:

There were a lot of trees with this odd striping. Anyone know why?

One of the rock churches on the parkway:

Where mom and dad would have eaten lunch:

The owner of this house was a midwife who lived to be 102. She delivered babies up until the year she died. She delivered over 1000 babies. None of her own 24 children survived infancy. Interesting!

I thought her ghost would grab Stephen for being curious:

Where we stayed:

The baby came on the trip with us:

The highlight of the trip for Stephen - I "let" him buy cowboy boots:

The drive-in we went to has been open for decades!

*In Winnie the Pooh, when they are at a bridge, two of them will drop sticks in the water on one side of the bridge, and the sticks race to the other side. Whoever's stick makes it under the bridge first wins!

Great pictures! You look so happy in them. Well-deserved vacation.

That background on the midwife is fascinating.
