Inniswood Metro Park

We have only fallen further in love with it as each year passes. Located in Westerville, the 121-acre Metro Garden offers […]

Columbus Metropolitan Library

We participated in a Reading Club, earning awesome prizes and finding a few new favorite books. We dance and […]

We are lucky to have a few fairs in close proximity to us. This week, we have The Franklin County […]
