Cincy, Part 2

Last Spring Break, my hubby and I snagged a cheap (but nice!) hotel room on and headed to Cincinatti for a few days of relaxing and reading. Like most seminarians, he has plenty to do at this point in the semester, but the few days away provides a different venue for studying. And for me, it is so restful and I can return to teaching with new energy to carry me through until the end. The little getaway last year proved so beneficial that we made a repeat trip this year.

We have a different area and hotel, but we still used Priceline, and we are still chilling in Cincy. On Tuesday, we visited the new Creation Museum. It was really well done, and we both were encouraged by how faithful it was to the Bible and how the Gospel was faithfully shared. From what we can see, it seems very faithful to science as well... and kid-friendly, so families would really enjoy a visit. We highly recommend both and The Creation Museum. :)

Other than that, we have shared a yummy meal at Abeulo's, because we can never get too much real Mexican food when the occasion presents itself. We have also hit up Jungle Jim's (a wacky, huge International Market that has food from just about everywhere) and Ikea. Today was consumed largely in reading and relaxing. I am reading, "My Heart is in His Hands," a biography of Ann Judson written by Sharon James. VERY good. Dustin's reading all sorts of books and preparing for an upcoming Sunday night devotional he will give at our church.

If you know us... you know that we're also hoping to find a Panda Express or a Boba Tea place tonight. And we are out to do some clothes shopping we've had to put off for awhile now. Then, back to the hotel for more reading!

It's good to get away together and enjoy some time to do things and to not do things. :)

That's the update from the Butts!

Yeah for a getaway! They are necessary sometimes and always beneficial. I still have not heard about how yours and Dustin's story. Are you furthering your education in seminary also, or just teaching? I am interested in pursuing a masters degree, but I would also like to take some seminary courses. Big decision. Any plans to come to TX anytime soon? Is the Judson story similar to the Three Mrs. Judsons? Let me know how it turns out. Have a marvelous weekend friend!!
