2nd Anniversary for the Ott's

Today marks our 2nd Anniversary!!!!!!!!!  It's had to believe Ott, E and I have been married that long, but when every day is absolute wedded bliss, the time just flys by.  So last year, for our first Anniversary, I took Ott, E to a Packers game in St. Louis.  This year Ott, E took me to Ohio to the Longaberger Homestead.  (Isn't he just the best!)  I've been there a couple of times before, as I am a huge Longaberger fan and own several baskets.  So I was surprised when he suggested going there, and of course said YES!!!!

While we were there we made a basket together.  Ott, E picked out the colors and tacs to have a fall theme.  There are brown and black splits and little oak leaves a acorns for the tacs.  We had to wear safety glasses while we made it and took turns weaving the splints over and under. 

After we left the homestead we went to Downtown Dresden to do some more shopping see the Worlds Largest Basket.
Then, we stopped by an Indian Mound in Newark, Ohio.  This particular mound is about 2 miles long and the picture shows a mound with a ditch that was built for protection. 
Overall, it was a great weekend trip that we both enjoyed!!!!

You got to *make your own* Longaberger?!?!? I am so jealous. :) Before we moved away from IN, I went to Dresden and did the tour {even got the tour basket to show for it!} and it was so much fun! but you don't see many Longabergers down here (and you don't find many people who understand a person's fascination with baskets either. LOL)

Wow...that is an original anniversary celebration! It would have been even cooler if "wood" was the second anniversary gift, but still, fun activity!!
