Had a great 2 day outing with Pat, Amber & Griff in Columbus, Ohio. The original plan was for Pat & Amber to get a session or two in the temple while we played with Griff. Unfortunately, after plans were in place we learned that the temple was closed this week for maintenance. We then went with Plan B and enjoyed an overnight in Columbus with some interesting dining - Schmidt's Sausage Haus, a German restaurant in The German Village (a restored German community near downtown Columbus). In the evening, we braved 30 degree, windy weather and walked about 10 blocks from our hotel to Buca di Beppo.
Pat, Amber, and Griff took in COSI, a great science, hands-on museum about 3 blocks from our hotel. Gramps & I got in our afternoon snooze. On Friday, Pat's toured the Ohio State campus and Harry & I returned to The German Village. We visited a stained glass shop (Franklin Art Glass), a 32 room bookstore (The Book Loft), and returned to Schmidts for another great German lunch.
