Hello! I've been taking it easy since we got to Kent's parent's house in TN. We are having great weather once again! It was about 70 degrees today in the sun. It feels good to wear pants and long sleeves.
We ate at Maple Grove for dinner tonight. I should have taken a picture. The food is so good there. We are going back for dinner tomorrow (Friday). The special is turkey and dressing plus two sides for $4.99. And you get a roll and butter and the portions are tremendous! Tonight I had the roast and gravy and it's the only place I've ever had it where there wasn't any fat or grizzle to pull off! WOW! MMMMMM....(yes, I'm gaining weight here!)
We'll be home on Sunday. As much as I enjoy being here in the country, I am looking forward to being home in my own "place".
Below are the fun things you can do on vacation. First one to bed is always fair game and mom and dad were always first to sleep as you can see...
Karl actually ate these M n Ms later!!!
"Every party has a pooper that's why we invited you....party pooper....party pooper...." (Hey, that should have been the title for the other picture!!!)

Then we drove on to Dresden, OH for lunch and pics. We ate at Popeye's. A 50's style restaurant that Dave Longaberger opened before he went into making baskets full time. It was good and the baskets were all over the restaurant!
I ran in to see the quaint stores around Dresden.
This is a mecca for ladies who want to get a way for a long weekend!!! Great gift shops and lots of opportunities for pics. The weather couldn't have been better, also.
We then drove on to Newark. Home of the Longaberger Headquarters. A huge basket shaped building with lots of cool features.

Okay, we are finally at The House That Rock Built. We were late getting there so we didn't go into the museum but the gift shop was full of things to look at and even more things to want to purchase!!! The interior is multi-level and there were large items haging from the wondows above. Very cool!
We also drove around Cleveland and saw the homes of the Cavaliers, Browns and Indians...basketball, football and baseball teams...in that order. Tomorrow we will move on to Charleston, WV. Only an overnight stay but a very quaint one, at that.
Here we are at Cedar Point just outside of Sandusky, OH. 16 rollercoasters and a whole lot of screams!!! We were able to do 12 of them and the space needle plus some food along the way. What a wonderful day!!! Low 60's and mostly sunny all day (hence, my jacket)! We sure are lucky!!!
If you can't see the video below, you are required to have Macromedia Flash Player 8. If you click on the screen, it should tell you how to download it. It's free to download. It is 1 minute and 50 seconds of us on Mean Streak...the big wooden rollercoaster. It was so much fun and using my little Elph camera which can do video, is just unbelievable!
Here we are, the night before the big day for the boys. We are standing at Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio. (If you look to mthe left behind us, you can see the rollercoasters at Cedar Point.) It is around 7 pm and the weather was below 60 degrees. I was freezing! At least the sun is out and the weather is clear and mild. Hopefully, tomorrow will be more of the same. Time for dinner and bed!!!
