One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

Time flies when you’re having fun – or just don’t have time for anything outside of work!  Ok, that’s the last time I’ll use that as an excuse.  I know it’s getting old.  But I really can’t believe I am just now downloading the pictures from our trip to Ohio that was now over a week ago.

Yes, we hopped in our car again for yet another 9 hour car drive each way.  This time we had some help with keeping the kids occupied since we drove out in a caravan with Nana, Papa, and Kristin.  It definitely helped to have one kid in each car, although you can only imagine the “fights” about who went in Papa’s car and who rode in our car.  Oy.

It was great to be able to see that side of Jeremy’s family and to experience Cincinnati.  Here are some of the highlights.

Getting ready for our riverboat cruise on the Ohio River.

The kids got to meet the captain.

Swimming at the hotel pool. If only I could show you the 5-picture sequence after this...

The mist tunnel at the Cincinnati Zoo was quite a hit, especially for such a hot day.

I LOVE giraffes! Since the National Zoo doesn't have them anymore, I get so excited to see them at other zoos.

Do lizards turn into princes too?

Zoo trains are always a good time for all.

The main reason for our visit was to celebrate Jeremy’s grandmother’s 80th birthday.  At the actual party, I was busy using his grandmother’s camera to take pictures for her, and Jeremy was busy keeping the kids entertained.  So we got no pictures with our own camera.  Bummer!  But we all had fun together and enjoyed the last bit of summer travel to O-HI-O!
