I took this picture on Christmas Day at my brother-in-law’s.
My mom’s side of the family celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas all in the same weekend, but not the same day. We experienced awesome weather so the kids were able to play outside. As usual, this was a great photo opportunity for me.
My dad and his brother, Mark.
Sierra and my brother enjoying the go-kart.
As beautiful as this place is in the fall, I cannot wait to go back when everything including the garden is in bloom.
This is the back of his home.
The kids spread out on each side of the tree to show just how big it is.. the limbs spread out. It is one of the recorded largest white oak trees in Indiana and was the subject in some of his paintings.
The front of his home from below. Beautiful hills of Brown County.
Loved this path.
This hill did not look so big until you were about halfway up it. I think it had 59 steps and many of those were taller than normal steps. Quite a workout.
Sean found this interesting pattern in some rock on the path up the hill.
