2011 in Ohio

In order to post about all the adventures we had in 2011, I have to split them up into several posts. In this post I decided to just focus on the things we did in Ohio, and there were plenty of things we did in Ohio this past year. 
Early in the year we celebrated our inner child and spent a day at Boonshoft and froze our bodies at the Columbus Zoo.
 We did some hiking in Hocking Hills

My mom came to visit and we self-toured the Ohio State Reformatory but sadly didn't see any ghosts.

Spent several days at Charleston Falls Preserve, where we stuck our feet in the water just to cool off.
Andrew surpised me with the best anniversary present ever and we spent two days at The Wilds 1 The Wilds 2. The pictures are many, it needed two posts. The memories will last forever, and Andrew will probably never top that anniversary present.
We went in search of aliens at Serpent Mound, but came up short.
Did some more hiking at  Clifton Gorge and John Bryan State Park. Near beautiful and quaint Yellow Springs, Oh.

Got our fill for museums at the Cincinnati Museum Center and even caught a real Omnimax movie!
Spent the whole day driving the Covered Bridges Scenic Byway, full of winding and steep roads.
And our latest and probaby last adventure of 2011, we spent an evening walking around          Woodland Lights

We had such a full year, there are even things I forgot and am way too tired to go back and add! I'm so lucky I have Andrew to spend the years with, we never fail to have an adventure.

When Andrew first found out that he was going to be stationed in Ohio, our reaction was pretty blah. Ohio? What's in Ohio? When we told other people, they had the same reaction. Ohio is the forgotten state. However, within weeks of moving here, we realized we could have fun here, and the past year is proof that Ohio should not be forgotten and I'm really pleased we've had the chance to discover the beautiful things Ohio has to offer.
