Vacations are crazy little things, you know? I've spent weeks and weeks preparing for vacation, reserving hotels, checking driving routes, buying toiletries, doing laundry, packing suitcases, gathering books, games, toys, and snacks for the kiddos...
And then, just like that...our week-long vacation is over. And time to get back to the "real world". But first, I think I need a vacation from the vacation. :-) However, I don't think I'll be lucking out.
The bulk of the week was spent in Ohio, at Cedar Point amusement park. The roller coaster capital of the world, there was plenty of thrills available to all of our children. And while amusement parks are all fine and well, I'll admit that they are extremely child-centered...which, frankly, can be unfairly exhausting.
We also pit-stopped in South Bend, Indiana to visit the College Football Hall of Fame, the campus of the University of Notre Dame, and South Bend Chocolate Company on the way to Cedar Point. Then, on the way home, we jetted an extra two hours down to Indianapolis to the Children's Museum...which touts itself as the World's Largest Children's Museum.
All in all, it was a great vacation. Things went smoothly and the kids had fun. But, I can't help wishing a little bit that I could spend a day or two in a bed and breakfast somewhere with my Kindle and my husband.
