Last weekend I visited my family!
Yes, I do that. I’ve been accused of never visiting and never is a long time! This past weekend I put such claims to bed. I was in Columbus Ohio from Friday night till Sunday afternoon.
Friday night I met John and Kristen for a burrito down the street from their house. Then they gave me a tour of there new place. John has done quite a job with the basement. It’s his own sports museum. It’s tough to discribe but it’s like a mini Hall of Fame if you will. Sadly it was dark out so I don’t have a picture of the house or the dogs, as there are 2.
Saturday, John picked me up bright and early for his Trampoline class. This, is also hard to explain. See the pictures below, it’s a giant space filled with “tramps” but the workout dosent really rely on the tramps all that much. It’s a normal cardio work out with some bouncing at the beginning. It’s fun!
We then met my parents and my cousin Krissy for lunch at what seems to be the prevailing style of restaurant in Columbus. That kind of tavern sports bar place. It was fine I had the chicken and a bourbon with too much ice.
After lunch John and Krissy went on with their days and I stayed to hang out with my parents. What did we do? Nothing just hung out and waited for dinner time. When that rolled around we want to the Mexican place in the parking lot. Then to bed.
Sunday was church at the crack of dawn and then brunch. John took off to do some laundry, so my parents took me on a tour of The Ohio State campus. In a word.. big! Not sure I really wrapped my head around it. The student Union building was pretty ugly but the library was fantastic.
After the tour I took off for Cincinnati. When I arrived I saw this lovely Vanagon! Then met my cousin Karen for dinner.
All in all a successful trip! Great to see everyone. Hope to do it again soon.
