Well, we are back from our little mini vacation to Dayton and Cincinnati. It was perfect for a family with 2 little kids. On the way to Cincinnati we stopped and spent the afternoon at the AFB Museum at Wright Patterson. We all loved that. That evening we headed south to Cincinnati. We stayed just down the road from the Cincinnati Zoo. It was great since we could walk to dinner and of course Graeter's Ice Cream!
Then we also went to Kings Island and the Newport Aquarium. It was great because the littlest was >just< tall enough to ride the kiddie rides. (literally by 1/4").
At the Aquarium, it is Sharkfest! Andrew was excited. Laura didn't want to walk through the tunnels. Here is a layout I did yesterday of some pictures in the tunnels. It is just too cool to have those guys swimming all around you.
I even got to 'pet' some sharks in a little shallow pool area. VERY different!
