We had a break from our normal routine last week, if not a break from the cold and snow. My parents visited us and our days were filled with adventures and relaxation. My mom and dad gave Craig and I some much appreciated time alone and together - for lighting projects and shopping and lunch with friends and TV in the middle of the day. Simple things, you know. Also, drinks at an over-21 establishment. Adventures, as I said.
Then we all went submarine spotting at Craig's favorite museum. There was enough to interest everyone, all day. The storm exhibit was fascinating.
Finally, because no mid-west winter vacation would be complete with out it, we went to a water park. It was awesome. The outdoor hot tub in the snow was my favorite, but a close second was riding the 50 foot high water slide with Audrey.
