Last weekend Keith and our friend Geoff took the kids on a hike through Stinesville, Indiana. Stinesville is a very small town in the north western part of Monroe County, about 25 miles from Bloomington's downtown. It was founded in 1855 by Eusebius Stine, who owned a sawmill and gristmill there. The population fell dramatically in 1916 when the Hoadley Mill burned down and wasn't rebuilt. The current population is about 200.
These pretty yellow flowers were picked for Mom
I wanted to share some lovely pictures that Keith took while they were there. It was a cold and rainy day (Mother's Day) and the kids were soaking wet when they returned home, but everyone had a good time, including the Moms who were at home enjoying a peaceful afternoon.
