Here are a few of the everyday things we did in Ohio...

Jack literally ran into the kitchen, and ran right
into Ken, who was holding a plate.
Jack got hit pretty hard, the plate shattered...eating frozen custard with cousinswant some?

I love that you all got to do and see so much while you were there! You really gave Jack some great memories and tangible experiences for the rest of his life!

Looks like you kept BUSY! I love that Molly is into trains. That is an area where Jack can really have a connection with her. This posting made me want to have frozen custard;)
