Our Second Day of Vacation!

After spending the night Thursday with my sister Lyndi (Thank You, Lyndi) we awoke on Friday and headed out to find brunch. We ended up at Bob Evans across the river in Kentucky. We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch and then from there headed to the birthplace and childhood home of William Howard Taft the 27th President of the U.S. Taft was the only man to have ever held both the office of President and the office of Chief Justice of the US. We spent time watching a very informative film about Taft and then enjoyed touring his home. For those of you that live around the Cincinnati area or if you are just visiting the area it is definitely worth visiting.

The Front Room

I can't remember the year but it is an old Chickering piano.

After leaving Taft's home we headed to my Mom's to spend the night. After we got to Mom's we took my Mom out for supper. We ate at Bob Evan's again as that is the main restaurant in the small town where she lives unless you want Mexican or Chinese. We had had Mexican on Thursday at a really good Mexican Restaurant in Kentucky and none of us are to keen on Chinese so opted for Bob Evan's again versus fast food.
