Cincinnati, Ohio

(Not the best of pictures but we took it so we're gonna use it)

Our Mom took this picture the other night from atop a hill in Northern Kentucky looking over the Ohio river into downtown Cincinnati. Although it is blurry, we think the lights are pretty. It was very cloudy and cold that night so the lights are reflecting on the low clouds.

Our mom has an appreciation for this picture. She grew up about 25 miles north of Cincinnati but attended college in Florida (Go South Florida Bulls!!!)

Every time she would drive back from school, this is the site she really looked forward to seeing. Anyone who has ever driven on I-75 through Cincinnati has seen this before. Right before you get to Ohio there is a portion of Northern KY called "the cut of the hill". I-75 curves through the hillsides until eventually you round a curve and everything opens up to reveal Cincinnati in front of you.

The sight always took my moms breath away and she would always breathe a giant sign of relief knowing she was home.
This picture does not do the view justice.

Let us know if you have ever driven through Cincinnati.
It is very beautiful at night all lit up.

Cinci is only a couple hours away, so Mom has been many, many times. Mostly, to go to Kings Island!
And now that there's an Ikea, she wants to make a shopping trip!

A sale? Cool!
I've heard of Great Wolf Lodge. Do they allow pets?
If not, I may have to be left with Grandma and Grandpa.
