This past Saturday we thought it would be fun to head down to campus and show the kids where Mommy and Daddy went to college. We started off our adventure by having a late lunch at Eddie George's Grille 27. The highlight of the meal was watching Gauge dance his little heart out to the Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling."
From there we walked over to Mirror Lake
where we sat and took in the scenery and watched the cute little ducks.
Next up was touring the Main Library and it's recent (to us) renovations. The view from the top floor were simply amazing. As we were standing looking out at The Towers....a huge hawk flew by with another small bird in it's talons.
From the Library to The Oval. Lots of great memories strolling these sidewalks with my sweetheart.....or laying in the grass on a warm sunny spring day (skipping class) lol
Next up was a tour of Larkins. Wow has it ever changed. Not that I visited Larkins much as a student. There seriously had to be over 100 treadmills in that place....along with tons of other exercise equipment, basketball courts, racquetball courts and even a viewing deck that look out over "The Shoe."
We walked past the stadium
hoping wishful thinking that maybe a gate would be open and we could just peek in "The Shoe"...no such luck.
We of course had to stop and get some pictures in front of the big Numbers.
and do O-H-I-O
Strolled past University Hall
on our way to the Ohio Union.....to visit Brutus.
The renovations on the Union was amazing. Gorgeous
We ended the day with some yummy ice cream from UDF right around the corner from where Daddy use to live.
Shawn and I both have so many great memories from our time at Ohio State. It was fun to take the kids, walk around and reminisce.
We won't talk about how hearing Carmen Ohio can still make me tear up.
