A Trip to Stan Hywet

Last weekend we made a trip to Stow to visit my parents. On Saturday, Mom, the kids, and I headed to Stan Hywet in Akron for Ohio Mart. Stan Hywet is a mansion built by the Seiberling family , the founders of Goodyear. I remember going there once when I was younger with my family and Grandpa and Grandma Lehman, but I haven't been back since. Ohio Mart is a big craft/artisan's fair on the grounds of Stan Hywet there is held every year in October. We spent the afternoon looking through the craft tents, sampling food, and walking around the grounds of Stan Hywet. They also had a treehouse exhibit with treehouses scattered around the grounds for the kids to explore (tree house photos coming soon!).

Ok, from those photos, I know you'd be dying to do a photo shoot there... I'm sure everything you saw you could imagine as a photo opportunity! I forgot what the place looked like.

Looks like it was a nice day, and I really like the picture with the reflection. You were probably all tired from staying up to watch the Indians 7-hit inning against Boston.

Actually Nan, this was the weekend before (when the Indians beat the Yankees on Friday night). We were visiting them this weekend and I was the ONLY one who stayed up for the whole game. But it was worth it. And Stan Hywet IS a great Photo place. Jenni
