Saying Goodbye

While on our seemingly never-ending sickness bout, we did take some pics of a special night out with our family. Our cousin, Justin, is currently in med school on the island of Grenada.  He came home for a winter break and was getting ready to return.  Saying goodbye is never fun, but we attempted to make it at least a tasty one.  We met at Mellow Mushroom and had a fantastic dinner and some quality family time.  Of course, this was before we knew Jude was suffering from an ear infection, so he was quite "busy" the entire evening.  It did allow for some entertainment, though.  Here's to you, Justin!  Love you!

Hello, Again

Hi there!  No, we haven't disappeared or left the country.  Our long, unintentional, blog hiatus was due to a lot of sickness going on around here. :(  We just can't seem to catch a break lately.  Jude had his first trip to Urgent Care last week to find out he had a double-ear infection.  I contracted the flu for the second time this season.  Matt has not been functioning quite at 100% either.  Pretty depressing, right?!?!  However, it seems that now we are on the up and up *knock on wood*.

In order to lift our spirits, we decided to get out of the house this past weekend.  Matt had been wanting to visit the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center, so that was where we spent a large part of our Saturday.  We couldn't take pictures in the actual exhibit...preservation and all, but we did take some before and after.  On a side note: this exhibit was not the most "kid-friendly" and we knew that going into it.  Thankfully, Jude decided to fall asleep in his stroller half-way through it. :)

Jude was getting a glimpse of the children's museum...of which we promised to take him to soon

He got a lot out of this visit ;)

A Visit to the Creation Museum

Last weekend we went to the Creation Museum.  Have you been there?  If not, it's definitely something you should carve out time for.  They have an annual event called "Christmas Town" that we wanted to visit.  It is a live nativity/play that you walk through.  The event was outdoors and it happened to be snowing the night we went...making the setting perfect, but cold.  After we went through "Christmas Town", we walked through the museum which was, as always, incredible and fascinating.
