Stardate 62611.65 - Ohio Wedding, Day One

We took off work on Friday (8/8) and flew to Ohio in the morning to attend the wedding of Cheryl's cousin Brian. Almost 1 year ago to the day, we flew out there for the wedding of Brian's younger brother, Mark. The wedding was on Saturday, so going out on Friday gave us a chance to visit with Cheryl's family. We drove from Columbus (cheaper airfares) to her Uncle Chris and Aunt Bev's place, where the famous Midwestern game of Cornhole was already set up in the driveway. Loren was more interested in the lawn equipment (a lawnmower is something new to our city kid!) than the game, and she and Ellie enjoyed playing on the "tractor".

They were very upset by the cracks in the seat (cracks older than the two of them put together, according to Uncle Chris), so Loren asked for some tape and proceeded to try and tape over the cracks.

That evening we went out to Sonic for Ellie's birthday party (after a brief detour to check into the hotel and some pool time for Loren), where Uncle Andy let the kids sign his cast.

Everyone jockyed for position to try and capture the signing on film.

Afterwards, Ellie opened her presents with a little help from Ethan and Loren.

Then it was off to Walmart for some juice boxes and milk, and then back to the hotel to hit the sack.

Day Two in Ohio.
