Usually, we go to Brown County over the holiday weekend,
but we didn’t make reservations in time.

 So…. we found a water park in Cincinnati and hit the road. 

First, we hit IKEA and ate lunch.

Aunt J recomended we go see Jungle Jim’s.  It is a…. different…
kind of grocery.

The selection of food was unmatched, we saw fresh produce we have
never seem before. 

It was totally cool…

The kids read to guide dogs at the library.

Little Man got in trouble.  Last week, he should have been reading
every night.  He did not tell us.  Now he has to do double the reading
to catch up.
