Day Trip to Austin Landing, Miamisburg, and West Carrollton

It seems as though my photo blogging posts get the most likes.  So I decided to make a video of my day trip adventure that I took on Friday.

After getting up for the day, I went to a few of the suburbs south of Dayton, Ohio.  One of the places I had not been to before which is Austin Landing.  I had been to the historic part of Miamisburg last year but didn’t really take photos.  Cox Arboretum is one of my favorite places to visit especially during July because of the butterfly house.

Here is a video of me in the evening talking about my day. In the background, you’ll hear my oldest asking me what I was doing and then he decides I’m vlogging so that is why I called this video Vlogging Attempt.

Here is the actual video from the photos I took on Friday morning. I am working through trying to figure out how to put music in these videos. For some reason, both YouTube and my video creation program only allow one song which is so frustrating.

Enjoy the video.

Have a magical day!

Fort Moultrie Part 2 – Day 9 Part 5

Click here and here for more information about the tour of the fort.

This video covers 1794 until the Revolutionary War era. We also walked around the park next to the fort. We were able to see Fort Sumter from the harbor which was cool.

I hope you enjoy this video.


Join me next week for a tour of Sullivan’s Island where Fort Moultrie is located.

Fort Moultrie Tour Part 1 – Day 9 Part 4

The rain stopped while we were in the museum. So, although it was wet outside, we were able to enjoy checking out the fort.

The fort tour begins with the World War II era and continues onto the Revolutionary War era. Today’s video only covers until 1794.

We enjoyed walking where the cannons were located. Since they were higher than the rest of the fort, the views from the cannons was remarkable. I also loved the fact the cannons had wheels and were able to be moved around easily.

I hope you enjoy this video.


Join me next week for the remainder of the tour of Fort Moultrie and the park next to the fort.

On the Way to Fort Moultrie and Inside the Museum – Day 9 Part 3

Since it was very rainy, we could not play on the beach. We had already decided to take the boys to Fort Moultrie. With the weather, it was the perfect day for this activity.

Fort Moultrie was the fort built during the Revolutionary Time period. When the British fired on the fort, it was half built. The fort was made from palmetto trees and was able to withstand the cannon balls. The battle was the first victory for the 13 colonies.

The fort was built and rebuilt over the course of almost 170 years. It was in use until after World War II.

We had to cross the Ravenell Bridge in the rain which was crazy.

Enjoy my video of our drive to Fort Moultrie and the museum part of the fort.


Next week, I’ll share the video of some of the fort. The rain ended up stopping while we were in the museum.

Have a magical day!

Around the House – Day 9 Part 2

As I said in my previous post, we had a rainstorm.  The outdoor photos in the video I am sharing today were taken before the rain began.

Enjoy my video of my of what we did at the house before leaving for the day.

Join me next week for our visit to Fort Moultrie.

Have a magical day,

Toledo Zoo Part 1 – Post #1

A week before I went to Hershey with the Imaginative One, Hubby and I were childless for almost a week.  We decided to go to the Toledo Zoo which was the last zoo I needed to visit in Ohio.  A couple days later, we visited the Newport Aquarium before heading down to the Boy Scout camp to pick up the boys.
