We had a great plane ride. First we flew to L.A. and had a 2 hour layover. Then we flew to Pittsburgh and got in around 6:40pm EST. As we drove into Ohio, the sun was setting in the horizon with corn fields spread out miles into the distance. Most of the farm houses that we passed had small lights in each of the front windows creating a peaceful setting. The crickets chirped loudly and lightning bugs flew gleaming over the fields.
We girls are staying at my great uncle and aunt's house. They own a feed and grain farm (which is very extensive). Attached is a video showing part of their property that we explored in the morning. Much to my surprise, we woke early this morning (6:30 EST, 3:30 PST) and felt refreshed and ready for a fun day. Of course, our aunt and uncle were up many hours before. We sat out on the porch talking to Aunt Joanna and enjoyed the warm fresh morning air, while drinking our perky coffee. After eating breakfast, we took a long walk around the farm buildings then discovered that the land across the street was Uncle David's so we went for a jaunt through the cornfield and surrounding area. Because the grass was still wet with the morning dew, we returned to the house and fired up the John Deere gator. Below are pictures of our exploration.
