Cincinnati trip--day 2

10:00 a.m.--leaving for the Creation Musuem.  Stopped at Walmart to get a charger for Mike's phone and Steak & Shake drive-thru for breakfast.  Somehow we got 8 tacos for less than $8.  Browsed the exhibits, saw 2 shows, rode a camel named C.J., and petted the animals at the petting zoo.  Walked the beautiful gardens, but hard to fully enjoy them because it was miserably hot and humid.

4:00 p.m.  Country Inn & Suites in Hebron, Kentucky.  Free cookies! Mike and Sarah failed to see the "CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE" sign on the door to the pool, so they got right into the murky waters.  Noah and I came along about 15 minutes later, saw the sign, asked at the desk how long it would be closed.   The guy said it would be closed till 5:00 so they can add chemicals.  We came back at 5:00, and there was still clearly something wrong with the water.  At 5:15 Sarah asked the guy at the desk when the pool would open, and he just went over, took the sign down, and declared it open.  Against my better judgment, we got in and swam.  While swimming, we noticed a leak in the ceiling that was dropping a stream of water into the pool.  Sometimes a stream, sometimes just a drip.  I figured it was toilet water that streamed whenever someone flushed. After we got out, Mike informed the desk guy about the leak.  He said he already knew about it and had informed the maintenance man two days ago.  I asked him if it was toilet water, and he said, "I really don't know.  It could be."  My germophobia is really flaring up on this trip.  There were other disgusting incidents too (involving my own children), but I can't talk about it anymore right now.

Later we ate leftover pizza and went to bed.
There was much jockeying for position and covers all night long. Noah complained that he only had "this much" space, because Sarah was sleeping diagonally.  I told him to move her over.  When he did, she punched him and kept right on sleeping.
