A Visit to See the Dogs

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

We got to go visit Bucky, Buffy and Boomer while we were in town. It turns out that we also got to see Aunt Carole, Uncle Dan, DJ & Kelly while we were at their house.

And, after driving through a Christmas lights display on the way home, we made a stop at “Santaland,” which was worth the nothing we paid for it:

Aquarium

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

Grandma took us to the Aquarium in Newport. It was a pretty good time, as Jacob tried to tell us when he threw his fit when it was time to leave. The kids loved the underwater Santa (though, for some reason, I think Grandma and Aunt Kathleen were expecting something more). Beth was too scared to get her picture taken (I’ll paste her in later), but here are Jake & Lauren with the scuba Santa:

We also took some pictures of our own:

Union Terminal Christmas Display

Friday, November 25th, 2005

Jen is convinced that there’s a lot more to do for Christmas in Cincinnati than there is in Nashville. We went to a really cool train display at Union Terminal. Needless to say, the kids loved it.

We were a little taken aback by their hiring policy:

but, hey, it’s Christmas, and who needs those Irish anyways.

We had a huge crowd for Thanksgiving at Grandma’s house. We didn’t get to take as many pictures as we would have liked, but here are a few:
