So here are my Friday Fave Fives from points east of Southern California.
1. Visiting family! Can you believe I did not take any photos of my The New Boy who is now a big fourth grade boy? We had a great time; we played Super Scrabble; we walked the dog. At least I got a photo of the dog.
2. This is the BEST time to visit the areas east of the Mississippi River. The leaves are beginning to turn and show their autumn colors.
3. We love driving through the mountains-- here are fleeting photos of the Appalachian and Allegheny Mountains. Obviously, these pictures taken from a speeding (rental) car don't show the true beauty of the mountains. But we feasted our eyes on mountains very different from our Southern California mountains.
4. And farm houses.
5. The best part? Being greeted with hugs and smiles. "Hi Meema and Bapa!"
