Frog City is Erie PA ?>

Frog City is Erie PA

We stopped here on our way to Niagara Falls not really expecting anything special but we thought we could get in some bike riding and it was by the water so that’s always a plus. After riding along the waterfront we started noticing these frog statues.     So after a little research I found out that there was a project call Leap Frog to raise money for the schools. Then we started seeing them everywhere.        …

So Many Childhood Memories ?>

So Many Childhood Memories

When I was growing up we spent our summer vacations on Put in Bay Island in Lake Erie. My Aunt Ernie had a home on the island and we would visit her every year. We previously went to Fred’s childhood memories in Hayward WI, now it was my time to show him around my stomping grounds. Put in Bay, Ohio, is a quaint community on South Bass Island—the southernmost of the Bass islands, located only 3 miles from Lake Erie’s…

Back to Biltmore Again ?>

Back to Biltmore Again

Our first trip to the Biltmore Estate was in 2018 . See our previous blog “Who needs a 178,926 square ft. house?” in July 2018. The property is so big that it is hard to see in one day.  We decided to go back and do a different tour and spend more time in the gardens. While we were there they had a special display in the Conservatory of model trains. These displays feature a variety of Biltmore area structures,…
