Last weekend we took a quick (but super relaxing) trip to south-eastern Ohio to visit Z’s family. We decided to take a leisurely time of getting there, and spent a little time exploring new shops & sites. On the way out we stopped at The Dawe’s Arboretum in Newark so we and Griffin (who is getting so big!) could stretch our legs. It is absolutely gorgeous and completely worth a stop, if you happen to be nearby. Photos also from: Z’s grandma’s beautiful land (where he found, and caught, that snake); Haymarket General Store, a ridiculously cute little shop full of all-natural and repurposed goodies in Cambridge; and Terra Cotta Vineyards and McDaniel’s Greenhouse, both in New Concord.
