Great Lakes Science Center

Our latest weekend adventure took us to the Great Lakes Science Center. Andrew and I probably had just as much fun as Taylor. There were lots of hands on activities and a play area for small kids. 

When we purchased our tickets, we also bundled in a self-guided tour of the William G. Mather Steamship which is docked right outside the Science Center. It is a historic 618-foot Great Lake freighter that is completely restored. It was really cool to walk through the whole ship and Taylor was excited to be on a boat. As a warning, if you are ever considering this tour, it has a lot of steep stairs which is slightly difficult to navigate while baby wearing and toddler carrying. Not impossible, but something to consider.

After we finished at the Science Center, we walked a good distance through Cleveland to find some lunch. We ended up at the Cleveland Chop which had amazing burgers! Another successful weekend in the books.

Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Our first adventure in Cleveland was the Museum of Natural History... because dinosaurs. Taylor is a big fan of dinosaurs right now (which is why he had a "two-rannosaurs rex" birthday party). When we first walked into the museum, I thought we might have forty minutes of entertainment, but the museum just kept going and going. We ended up staying a good two hours. We probably would have stayed even longer, but we were in need of some lunch. Taylor had a blast seeing all the animal displays and dinosaur fossils and Olive had a good time sleeping in the Ergo. 

We found a great little place called Simply Greek for lunch then it was home for naps. We ended our day with a walk by Lake Erie and through the neighborhood. I'd say our first Saturday adventure was a success.

An Ohio Adventure

We have made it to Ohio! 

For those who aren't aware, Andrew got a summer internship at PolyOne located just outside of Cleveland, Ohio so we are here for a 12 week adventure. It's absolutely gorgeous here. I'm not used to everything being green and having huge trees line every street (just a tad different from our Arizona desert). We are staying in the cutest little 1948 Tudor style home that is approximately a 30 second walk from Lake Erie. 

We've been exploring our neighborhood by going on lots of walks. I can't stop taking pictures of every house we pass because they're all so adorable.

There is so much to see and do here in Cleveland which means our weekends will be spent trying to fit everything in before our summer is over. Here's to a family adventure.
