Ohio Vacation

In October, we took a week vacation to Ohio for my cousin's wedding. The wedding was on Saturday so we had plenty of time to do some site seeing and visit some places and visit with family. My parents rented a cottage in Port Clinton so we were able to stay with them. My friend Danielle came with us to babysit the babies during the wedding. Our family from Georgia came to visit us at the cottage on Friday. My cousin Stephanie and Kyle had a baby last year and this was the first time that we all got to meet her!

The cottage was a 3 bedroom with a living room and kitchen. There was a big open area so we set up the play yard for the babies to play in all week. When our family from Georgia came to visit, the babies got to play with Alexa in the play yard. Since the babies have been around and played with other babies before, I knew they would play great with her.

After the family left, we took a trip to Cleveland. Our main reason for going there was to go to the Winking Lizard Tavern. The Winking Lizard has awesome wings! My dad orders the sauce for the wings so we can make them at home! After we ate lunch, we walked around Downtown Cleveland. We visited the Cleveland Indians stadium and the Cleveland Browns stadium!

On Monday, we went to Put-In Bay. Put-In Bay is an island on Lake Erie. We took the Miller Ferry from Catawba Island. This was the first time that I have rode on a ferry! When we got over to the island, we found out that everything was closed for the season. We did however find a restaurant that was still open so we were able to eat! We walked around the downtown area and then walked back to the ferry. The island had one school, Kindergarten thru 12th grade.  They had a lot of different restaurants and bars. We visited a Winery, but unfortunately, they were not giving tours for the rest of the season.

We had to head home on Tuesday. We had a great vacation visiting family and site seeing!
