Heading Home

Well, our time has come to a close and we fly home tomorrow. It has been a really nice visit with family here in Ohio. Besides the amusement park (see below), we managed to play several games of croquet and Clue with the kids, go to Jessica's youth group for "drive in movie night" and visit the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. We were all quite impressed with the museum - it was much more extensive than we expected to find. I found the information about the early years of flight to be the most fascinating - especially the military use of hot air and hydrogen balloons during three wars.

Today, I went to a Partylite Candle party with my sister-in-law, Jami, while Denis went to a church movie discussion group with Jim. Good times were had by all. :o) During the week, I tried out 3 recipes from my new Rachael Ray magazine on my family. All three were a hit. Apple cake was breakfast for two days. Dinner of "Two Tomato Pasta" and "Toasted Pecan Salad" pleased two sets... The kids preferred the pasta while the adults were impressed with the salad. (I was accused of using "strange lettuce", meaning that it was other than iceberg.)

So tomorrow we fly home. It will be good to be back in our own house and our own bed. Travelling does make me appreciate home more.

I don't believe in eating iceberg lettuce since there is so little nutritional value in it.

I and their parents have informed the kids of that fact numerous times. But iceberg is the familiar lettuce and they like it the best. They may grow out of it someday.

Martha said...

I prefer a mix of iceberg and something else, say... spinach or red leaf. Iceberg has to be good for something, afterall, God made it to eat!

Rachel said...

Maybe just for the bunnies to eat.

Martha said...

... hop,... hop, hop!

It's still my favorite lettuce. It doesn't feel scatchy and doesn't usually taste bitter ir "grassy".

Tracy said...

Who knew a lettuce comment could generate such heated debate?! :o)

fun!

I don't mind iceberg. But I know that there are other lettuces with better nutritional value, so I try to choose those ones as well.
