Sugarcreek Roadtrips

It's been a while since we last visited Sugarcreek.  We used to go there almost every weekend just so we can drive around and see other sceneries other than Weirton.  We enjoy shopping at the Amish stores and buy stuff that are not available here.  The kids enjoy it too.
Driving through Ohio is very relaxing.  I love seeing the farm sceneries and the presence of farm animals like horses, cows, goats and the herd of sheep.
The best time is Spring to Fall since everything is alive and colorful.
I am going to miss all of these little trips that we did with our kids when they have their own families and can't spend  all of the their time with us. Sugarcreek is one of our favorite places to go but lately we have gone to Walnut Creek more but still drive around Sugarcreek on our way home.  There's just something charming about those places that keeps bringing us back.

Ogle Bay Park in Wheeling WV: Spring of 2021

 These photos were taken last year when a friend took some photos of my daughter at Oglebay Park in Wheeling West Virginia.  Driving around the park in late Spring is way different scenario than we drove there in Winter.  The lights were beautiful at night but nothing compares to the beauty of nature when it s daylight of warmer months.

We visited some parts of this park a few times  few years ago for tennis matches but never got to explore its entirety.  I think it would take a long day to explore the whole park on foot.
I think this part is where they host live shows or do weddings, it's a very nice set up.
This pine caught my eye, it has a lot of characters.  It's like one of those pines you see in Japanese gardens.
It's really nice to go out there if you are into nature, lots of  things to see and enjoy.
If I were a professional photographer, I would choose this  place too because there's a lot of beautiful backgrounds you can choose.
My husband and son roamed around the park while I watched  the photoshoot.
Like the blossoming flowers, my daughter is blossoming into a grown woman.  It's nerve wracking but also exciting to see her grow up.  
Spring and summer is the best times to go to Oglebay.  It has a very charming landscape.

I'm thinking of having my daughter's photos taken by professional for her senior year.  I'm going to look for photographers around the area.
I love this walking pathway.
I am grateful for my friend for making my daughter her model that day.  I think she had a lot of fun taking her direction with the poses.
If it's not a far drive, I would love to hang out in this park during summer days, it would be an awesome place  for running or walking.

We went there after Christmas to see their festival of lights.

City of Lights #WheelingWV

 Before 2021, we decided to do a little night stroll towards Wheeling, the City of Lights.  We went and see the festival of lights at Oglebay.  It's been years since we  went and see that.  I was still pregnant with our son when we first saw the festival of lights there.  Now that they're older, we decoded to see it again.  

Although it has been stated that there are many lights added, I didn't see much of a difference.  
It is something that it's good to do though just to break the monotony of life's routine so it was a nice little trip we did as a family.  
We were done  looking at the lights after 15 minutes or so.  We proceeded at the Highlands  from Oglebay and had dinner at Olive Garden.
Here's a couple of video I've recorded.

Perfect Stroll in Nature: Panhandle Trail 2021

We decided to explore the Panhandle Trail on my 48th birthday.  It's such a serene place to go on a walk, ride bikes, jog, or just a relaxing walk.  It is flat and well maintained so it's a great place to  walk with your dog or your entire family.
If you want to see part of West Virginia and PA, this is a great place to travel by foot or by bike.  One daty, I would love to really reach the PA part of the trail to see the difference.
These happy faces says it all.  It was a perfect stroll in the nature.  I will forever remember my 48th birthday since we spent it together at this beautiful  trail.
What more can I ask for, a loving husband and kids, I am blessed.
There are a couple of streams that you can stopped by and watch.  The sound of the water is just as relaxing.
Of course the little guy has to check it.
Oh I love the wild flowers that you can see along the trail.
Bonding with your children while enjoying the beautiful nature is just a perfect combo.
It's been so long since we did this kind of bonding.  We used to go on a long walk with the kids and we had great memories.
The hubby thought it would be  great to take picture of my while I'm stretching out trying to grab the rope lol.
Eventually, we gave up trying to get the rope.
It was  an awesome day.
Panhandle Trail is a 27.7 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Weirton, West Virginia that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until October.
