Anything can happen Thursdays!

I have the best family ever!!!!  It seems now when more than two of us are gathered together, on a Thursday it turns into "Anything Can Happen Thursday".  Meaning that we pile into a vehicle and head out for a days excursion.  Well today while we were back in Columbus visiting we once again enjoyed a "ACHT" (had to shorten it).  Mike and I joined my brother Gary, our niece Faith and her husband Tim and headed off first for lunch at Caines Chicken, YUM!

From here we piled back into the van and headed up to Mt Vernon.  We ended up at Ariel Foundation Park in Mt Vernon.  They have taken the remnants of the old Owens Corning Glass factory and made it into a park.  Mike and I had been there before but we wanted to share it with the group.  It was an awesome afternoon.

I asked the guys to stand together so I could get a picture and this is what they did.

Okay that's better
