Easter Weekend

This past week I had four days off and I used them to the best of my advantage. I got out of town!


I did a miniature road trip to the Newport Aquarium outside of Cincinnati. I've been there before but I'm guessing because of spring breaks and the Easter holiday, the place was packed out! They had a 2 hour wait to even get inside the place.


So what did we do to kill time? We walked around Newport on the Levee and enjoyed the human hamster balls. Have you seen these?
It was $8.00 well spent. You get inside of them, they add all of the air and then they push into a pool so you can roll around on the surface without getting wet! 


Once the wait was over, I was able to get inside the aquarium and see all the creatures of the sea. Since my last visit they got a new addition of an alligator called Mighty Mike. He was literally over 500 pounds! Even though we had to wait a few hours to get inside, the trip was definitely worth it. 

  Easter bunny hopped by and dropped off some baskets! 
 I had a fun Easter weekend! Hope you did too!

I've been to the Newport Aquarium quite a few times (love it!), but I've never seen these human hamster balls. It looks like fun! I'll have to look for those the next time I'm in the area. Glad you had such an awesome Easter! :)
