We headed out early, our plan was to visit COSI in Columbus on the way, unfortunately their website failed to mention that they were CLOSED for most of the month of September for a remodel, really disappointing and frustrating as we had allowed almost 2 1/2 hours to walk around. We ended up at a nearby conservatory which gave the kids a place to use the restroom and run off some energy! Also allowed the opportunity to snap a few pictures!

After spending about an hour or so at the conservatory, we headed off for lunch...eating out has become an unexpected treat around here so everyone was not only thrilled to be eating out, but also thrilled that I had found a restaurant featured on one of their favorite TV shows (Man vs. Food) as our dining destination! The THURMAN CAFE is quite popular, even on a Thursday afternoon we had to wait for a table!
Following the campfire, the kids quickly went off to join friends (new and old) and I had time to sit and chat with other mamas....guess I must have been starving for adult conversation because I was the only one who missed the 12:30 AM check in for the family! Grant came and found me! I think I finally tiptoed back into my room around 2:30 AM and managed to fall asleep!
