Today was primary day here in Kentucky, and the kids had the day off school. So after casting our ballots, we took the kids to the Newport Aquarium. (Special thanks to Uncle Ron and Aunt Ok who sent some money for us to do something fun!)
Overlooking the Ohio River with Cincinnati in the background brought out a chant the kids learned at school: "Boo Ohio State! Boo Ohio State!"
