blue ribbon day

Jack proclaimed today as
"The Best Ohio Day...EVER!"
So, I had to share the highlights!
Our day started at the Christmas Story House....
(my camera was being weird. But, here we
are in front of "the" lamp!)
They have a museum across the street...
the dreaded pink bunny suit.
Next stop, the Cleveland Zoo.
Molly didn't love the dinosaur exhibit.
(In her defense, they moved AND growled)

Thanks to FaceBook, Ken connected with an old friend
who works at the zoo.
He took us "backstage" to meet this hungry, hungry, hippo!
So, the kids got to feed him!

As if feeding a hippo wasn't enough...

Of course, Molly loved the petting zoo.
To cool off...
Our last stop was the pool.
Again, Ken has a friend who is the summer
manager, so we got to swim and play while it
was "closed" for the public.
This has always been a favorite place for Jack.
Even though Molly HATED the regular pool,
she was SO happy here!
(she even went face in a dozen times and came up smiling!)
I am pretty sure this really was the "Best Ohio Day Ever"

That's awesome! Minus the scary dinosaur, or course...
