189/365 "Take Blake to Work" Day


Blake woke up bright and early, put on his golf shirt & khakis, and went to work with Ryan in Columbus this morning.  He went to a few meetings & hit the gavel during the skeleton session in the House Chamber, but the highlight of his trip was having lunch at Mitchell's Steakhouse!

180/365 Traveling Through Ohio

We traveled home from Port Clinton this morning by way of Dayton so it was a long drive.  I was surprised at how flat and straight some of the the roads are up there. I saw this flag (somewhere in NW Ohio) and thought it was pretty!

179.5/365 Kennedy's Championship Game

Green Xtreme pulled it off and won the championship game...Congratulations B-Ball Champs 2014.  We hated missing it but heard everyone played a great game and I found lots of pictures on facebook so I felt like I was there!

179/365 Ohio Commodores Annual Meeting


This afternoon we drove to Port Clinton, Ohio on Lake Erie.   Ryan was inducted into the Association of Ohio Commodores at their annual meeting this evening... along with his friends Cliff and Ginni (and several others:). He was sponsored by Steve Evans and Marianne Campbell and US Senator Rob Portman was the speaker.  We had just a little time to drive around to check out the sites before dinner... I felt like I was at the beach with all of the water.  We didn't make it over to Put-In-Bay but hopefully we can make it back up sometime and see alittle more of the area!

177/365 Camryn's Selfie

I thought Camryn was just playing a game on my phone earlier but turns out she discovered how to turn the camera around so she could take selfies! lol  Kennedy made a trip to the Orthodontist today for a new wire and band... looking good!  She won her first softball tournament game last night so they played again this evening and did great... Saturday will be the championship game against Vinton.  After the game, Ethan and Bella came home with us to stay the night!

176/365 Family Camp

Ryan and I went to see Grant tonight at Boy Scout Camp for their "Family Camp".  It had rained the night before so their camp site was a mud pit (along with Grant's shoes:).  After checking out the camp site we had dinner with Grant then stayed for Chapel and Campfire.  He's having fun and working on a few merit badges... they'll be heading home Saturday!

We ran to town this morning to get a tour of Ryan's new office.  They are in the process of remodeling it and should be finished next month.  It's right on the park front now and just a block over from their current office so they don't have far to move!

Blake and Kennedy decided to make a fruit plate last night with all of the fruit I had just bought.... I was quite impressed with their creations and they even ate most of it!  This evenening we had Kennedy's softball game... she is doing great... had a great hit an another run! :)  There's a huge dirt pile at this field that Blake and Camryn played in the whole game... you can't tell it from this picture but she is covered in dirt!

168/365 Ryan's First Bill Signing

Ryan's 1st bill (HB 341) was signed into law today by Governer Kasich with a little help from Kennedy! He let Kennedy dot the "I" in his signiture... very cool! He tried to get Camryn to sit on his lap but she wouldn't do it. For those of you wondering what House Bill 341 is all about... here you go: With a few exempted situations, this piece of legislation will require prescribers to utilize the Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System when prescribing opioids. House Bill 341 was introduced to ensure that patients aren't doctor shopping or using multiple prescription medications that are deadly when mixed. After the signing we got a little tour of the Statehouse and visited the House Floor before heading back to Gallipolis.
