We've recently taken several mini-day trips and had so much fun! Doug has taken off a few days, and we've been able to do so many fun things. Plus, Ainsley's car ride tolerance seems to be 2-3 hours, so it's been working out well.
First, over Memorial Day, we took the kids to Columbus. We went for two days and pricelined an awesome hotel. The hotel had a indoor and outdoor pool that connected, so you could swim between the two. (I missed pictures of this!) Evan was in heaven at the pool! We also took a tour of the Anthony Thomas Chocolate Factory (also missed pictures). Evan was super interested and it was fun to watch the chocolate being made. We even got free Buckeyes at the end!
The rest of the time, we went to Cosi using our Cincinnati Museum Center pass. So much fun!! Here are some pictures from our two day visit:
First up - the water table in the Kid's Zone. We spent the most time there - Evan playing with the locks and Ainsley spraying water:
The kids also loved the Kidspace - it was for little ones 5 and under and it was strictly enforced, which was really nice:
Evan tried to pull himself up using a pulley system:
And lift lots of heavy weights: Of course, there was the big kid water area too:
And lots of fun to be had playing on the bed at the hotel:
We had such a great time on our little adventure!
