Apple Ridge at Sharon Woods

We are so fortunate to have the Metro Parks here in Columbus. Not only do they provide a beautiful green space in the middle of our city, they host fantastic events and have great  playgrounds. Recently, we had a big nanny get together. It is hard to find an outdoor […]

If your kiddos love baseball or even you, The Phoenix Bat Factory in Plain City is a great place to visit. They offer a fantastic, interactive tour. I took my two nanny kiddos and as we were walking in, a group of adults walked out. They gear the tour towards […]

Emerald Fields Park in Dublin

Anyone else love stumbling upon a good park? A few summers ago, we came across this hidden gem in Dublin. It is located right behind the Kroger on Sawmill and Hard Rd. I can’t remember why we were back there, but, happy we were. The playground is a universally accessible […]

Central Ohio Fire Museum

We love visiting The Central Ohio Fire Museum in downtown Columbus. Opened in 2002, firefighters, corporate and community sponsors raised $700,000 to restore the 1908 Columbus Engine House (No.16). Paying tribute to firefighters, past – present – future, the museum is a great way to learn about fire history, education, […]

Inniswood Metro Park

Columbus Metropolitan Library

This summer, we had an up close visit with a wolf. We sat front row to watch the Richens/Timm Academy Irish Dancers. We met “Abraham Lincoln” and asked him all the questions we could think of. We participated in a Reading Club, earning awesome prizes and finding a few new […]
