Monday: cleaned a little, hung out clothes, lunch at wendys, playDoh, picked up our family fun quest scavenger hunt booklet which D and i looked through and wrote in all the answers we knew. made home made personal pizzas.
Tuesday: Ken and i surprised D with a trip to the newport aquarium, near cincinatti.
we treated this day like a real vacation, it may be the only one ken gets this year. since he used up all his vacation days when Miles was born.
we let Dominic pick out something from the gift shop, he chose a stuffed otter, so that his stuffed beaver toy will have a friend he said.
lunch was excellent, an irish pub, i had fish and chips and a pint of Killians. it was quite good.
then we went to coldstone creamery, yay! cheese cake ice cream with strawberries and blueberries.
wednesday: D had a dentist appt (boo)
but after that we took advantage of the "free adult with paid child" offer at the lanier mansion behind the scenes tour.
Today: sand art at the hanover branch of the library. then later in the afternoon, walking tour of madison, the most interesting part being the tour of the old jail, circa 1870, let me just say that if jail was like that, people would try harder to stay out of it...the toilet was a stone block with a hole in it, um...eww. the cells were solid limestone with no windows, and would have been pitch black if the solid metal door was closed.
so thats our week so far.
