Early a.m. start as I talked through my workshop for the upcoming PWOCI Conference....mainly I keep having such a good time with Jesus in prep that I'm not making the forward momentum progress I want to see. Honestly, it's all VERY good and I'm content.  I  then sent out a bunch of Asia Region related emails and one or two related to International.....THEN.....we packed a picnic and headed to....Towada Horse Park

The Red Cone at the top left is the top of the roller slide, the yellow winding through the trees is part of the slide.....

We  were given great directions for a short cut that makes this about 35 min drive from our was a gorgeous fall day and we had the park nearly to ourselves. We enjoyed sharing this treasure with Michael. 

Yes, I enjoyed this too. 

Mike and I walked in parts of the park I'd not explored.

 The kids played at the park down below. 

We watched for pictures in the clouds - haven't done that for years. 

We went in search of a geocache at Swan Park....had to leave when they wanted to lock the we'll look again later.....

I am  loving this STAYcation.....we've tried this before and it's never worked well.....but we've found the secret this time. Michael asked us to clear our calendars...and we did...of everything....usually we keep the essentials in the schedule. LOL  This has been heavenly. . . according to Mike and I. LOL

They provide kickboards and I discovered that a folded up jacket is a nice bonus. LOL
