Sitting in Jason's beloved civic Si
First stop - North Market for lunch!
So many shops to choose from - Ivy is confused
Jason - "are we related??"
Everybody decides to hit the Vietnamese place for lunch.
Pho and iced coffee!
apparently, "Brothers" is a chain bar and appears in both Columbus and Champaign!
Route 66 runs through Columbus I guess...
We decide to trek to the Columbus Boat after lunch...
This is the columbus boat!
Afterwards, it's time to ride/drive the S2000.
Ivy gets the first ride.
Jason and his babe.
I get a chance to drive this cute little monster! Man I love the growl.
the younger cousins are attacking each other...
We go grocery shopping. Everything is ohio state themed...because apparently, that's the "obsession" in Columbus.
Hit up a seafood place for lunch. Calimari!
time to sleep! jason and his GF =)
Ivy and her crocodile...
Aunt amy treats us all with 紅包!! We are immensely grateful!
We go visit a local lake, and walk around. Such a peaceful morning!
Beautiful lake panorama!
The ducks are more peaceful and the water is clearer in ohio than in texas.
Ivy decides to start collecting flowers for her class...
After dim sum, we visit Jeni's ice cream for lunch. The sorbet was delicious!
Ivy decides to kiss the frog, in hopes of finding her prince...
Kevin thinks that the frog will more likely turn into a princess.
Meanwhile, Jason gets addicted to a silly game on Ivy's iPhone.
And he plays.....and plays. =)
Next we go applepicking!
In the market, Ivy touches and smells all the fruit =P
once again, everything is OSU themed...
The funky looking goard makes a good hat!
It took us a while to find the function of the funny-looking red-shaped half-tomato.
The super big chair. Or the super-small ivy.
The chair fits two!
Shaking hands with a skeleton.
Loading up on groceries.
Finally, the apple trees. We first try the gala and the jonathans but these trees aren't very tall...
trying out the Gala apples!
The best fruit are near the top of the tree.
The bag is too heavy.
We play a little bit of baseball with the apples.
We move on to the McIntosh apples. these trees are taller, so we start climbing...
Apple picking takes teamwork!
Two large bags of apples.
Time to head home!
At home, a praying mantis awaits us at the door. This praying mantis is always praying....
Aunt amy is awesome is and she knows how to make apple everything!
The cousins' jobs are to wash, peel, and cut the apples...
Peeling and cutting.
