columbus...

jackson and i spent a weekend in columbus...
(big thanks to sarah and mom for watching the girlies)
i had a workshop on friday and i was able to convince jackson to come with me and make a weekend of it...
we had tons of fun!

we went to the funny bone and saw Heywood Banks {"yah toast!!"}...
spent the day at easton town center {anthropologie, pottery barn, and container store...yay!}...
saw "last house on the left" {it was "microwave-head fantastic" as the usher said}...we wanted to see something in IMAX, but the only thing showing was "monsters -vs- aliens" and we knew the girls would disown us if we saw it without them...
had an AMAZING dinner at mitchell's ocean club {$40 for JUST the steak....that's all i'm sayin'}...

i had so much fun just spending time with jackson, i didn't take pics of any of that stuff!

but, we went to the conservatory, and i made up for it...
they had their butterfly exhibit and some stunning glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly...
