A day in Cincy...

and we really packed in the activities, so this will probably be a LOT of pics.
We started off with a visit to Carew Tower, the tallest building in Cincinnati
(at least until the completion of the Great American Tower at Green City Square in 2011).
The 574 ft. Carew Tower, which was completed in 1931, has an observation deck on the 49th view providing beautiful, panoramic views of the city.

Someone offered to take a family pic for us, and of course, we accepted:)

Next we headed for Graeters, crossing through this area to get there.

Doesn't it look delicious?

Luke certainly thinks so:)

On our way back through, the boys wanted to splash in the fountain.
And now off to the zoo!

What funny looking men;)

Luke was interested in the miniature cow, but no way was he going any closer.

Who is that handsome turtle?

"Leaping" across the "lilypads"
with Daddy's help.

Now that is a leap!

Time to go...

after scaling the rhino, of course.

All of the flowers were in full bloom - BEAUTIFUL!!!

Good thing he took a nap at this point, because we continued on to dinner at our favorite pizza joint (Dewey's), and then drove halfway home where we stopped off to catch a movie.
We got home around 1:30am.
What a spectacular day!!!

This looks fantastic. The family picture is very nice and it was a great idea that the passer by wanted to do it. Were you in Cincinnatti just for a day out?
