After dinner, we prepped for the campfire in the back'yard'. Way behind the barn in this picture. Even though storms were around us, we didn't get soaked. Just a few sprinkles. Hearing stories of Ginger's cross-country trip, s'mores, baby names. Perfect campfire evening. After the campfire, it was back to the house for Phase 10 and introducing me to the Netti-Pot. Verdict is still out on my experience with it. :)
The next morning, we lazed around a little then went on a tour of their hometown/county. I got to see the Henry high school (complete with a siloh and multiple tractors!), and the Herold farm where I met multiple dogs, kitties, and goats. Pure joy, right here.
|Price of admission to the Corn Maze?|
A canned food donation. Thanks for the Refried Beans, Herolds.
After the Corn Maze, we played volleyball, which is something I hadn't done in a very long time. But it was hysterically fun with the comments and antics of Beth, Lisa, Hallie, Ginger, and Sam. Oh, and I picked the right team. ;)

So after the hometown tour and corn maze, it was time to go (way too soon!). Sometime over the weekend, we had discovered that Blacksburg, VA was only 2 hours(ish) away, and I really wanted to go and see my Dad's house. Hadn't been there since he died in 2001. Ginger went with me, and I actually remembered how to get to his house. Brought back lots of sweet memories. I even visited his landlords. It was a quick visit, and I'm glad I went, though it was definitely closer to 3 hours, and Ginger had to get back home soon after dinner. Next time, I'll stick to West Virginia. But it was fun to be in Blacksburg on Game Day... Go Hokies! thought about the Seamans and Taltons! :)

So, it was really a wonderful weekend... not too wild. Can't wait to go back again!
