10 Things that I Miss about Dayton
I had started to draft a different post for July's 10 Things, but then I changed my mind after seeing a photo on Facebook. I have lived in San Antonio for seven years, and here are 10 Things that I miss about Dayton, Ohio:
I grew up living near most of my family, and I miss having them nearby. Our families have spread out, but most of them are in the Dayton area.
Many of my friends are still in Ohio, and I miss them. Facebook, email and visits help.
3. Spring, Summer and Fall
I have never been a fan of winter, but we only have 2 seasons in South Texas: Hot and Not Hot.
4. Dayton Dragons Minor League Baseball
The games are a blast! Someone posted a picture on Facebook from their 815th sell out game, and got me thinking about the things that I miss from Dayton. It is especially fun to watch some of the guys go up to the Cincinnati Reds.
5. Marion's Pizza
It is the best thin crust pizza ever!
6. Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm
I can't wait to take Alex there. I spent a lot of time there growing up, and then John and I had our wedding and reception at the Center.
7. MetroParks, including "The Englewood Reserve"
I also spent a lot of time there growing up.
The Dayton area has a great variety of free and low cost festivals including City Folk, the Celtic Festival, and the Aullwood Festivals, and more.
9. University of Dayton
I loved the two years that I spent as a student there for graduate school and still cheer on the Flyers.
10. It is home.
There is a history and familiarity there that will take decades to develop anywhere else.
