And we spent the evening introducing them to Graeter's ice cream. Today, we started off exploring the Book Loft, one of my favorite places in town. We all found books that we couldn't resist. Then we stopped by the Topiary garden. It's Georges Seurat's, A Sunday On The Island Of La Grande Jatte laid out in bushes and who can visit Columbus without seeing that?
We lunched at the North Market where we picked up more yellow watermelon to share with Larry since it's his favorite and he was missing out on the fun.
Contrary to what this face might indicate, Jack did enjoy it.
After the boys napped we went to COSI, the children's science museum here. The last Friday of the month is Family Friday Night, when they stay open from 5 to 9 pm and admission is about half the price. Here's Larry on the high wire.
The ocean exhibit is one of my favorites and Creed was mesmerized by all of the water.
And Jack loved playing with the water table in kidspace
They even had a baby water table for Creed!
The weather has been perfect today. I wish it could be like this every day!
And right out on the Waterfront was the first Waterfire of the year. A few times during the year they have floating bonfires out on the river and they usually have a band playing, but once a year, BalletMet does a preview of their seasons during Waterfire and we happened to catch that tonight. It was so fun.
And to finish our perfect night we stopped for Jeni's Ice Cream!
Now we just have to plan the rest of our weekend. The Buckeyes are playing and Keri and Jack need to return to Texas with Buckeye Tees, and Gallery Hop is this Saturday and I'm told the arches will be multicolored this month, There's also the Greek Festival, but I have this thing about paying to go to a festival so I can pay for food, on the other hand, I'm told the Greek Festival s worth it. Shakespeare in the Park is still running. The Renaissance Festival is just beginning and where else can you come in contact with a crowd as "interesting" as a Renaissance Festival crowd? See what I mean about all of the things going on around here this weekend? on top of all that I think Keri and Jack might like to see Amish country, the Columbus Zoo, and the Airforce Museum in Dayton. Any of you have any favorite things to do with visitors?
