Bucket List Goal Completed: Visit a Haunted Location

On September 14, we finally made it to the Ohio State Reformatory. The word is that it is a haunted location. So I can officially cross visiting a haunted location off of the bucket list.

I didn’t see anything but I did smell chicken noodle soup. There was no chicken noodle soup anywhere. In the room used for entertaining guests of the prison – not the prisoners- I felt really cold in the area by the stage.

There are ghost tours of the prison. We’ll have to do this some other time. If you want to see what other activities there are at the Ohio State Reformatory, visit their website- The Ohio State Reformatory

Eva kept pointing at something in the chapel. I could not hear what she was saying at all. I think she saw a bird or something like a bird.
Eva thought she saw something move when she got a little further down the way.
I felt really cold while taking this picture. This room was used for entertaining special guests.

Bucket List Goal Completed: Renaissance Fair

Everybody, this was the year! We finally made it to the Ohio Renaissance Festival!!

For at least 20 years, I’ve been trying to go to the Ohio Renaissance Festival. During the last 3 years, the chances to go were so close but somehow kept slipping through our fingers. We had the gas money and tickets but no free time at the same time.

I had a dream about this dress shop. I’ve never seen this place before except in a dream. Deja vu. My kid dragged me away before I was transported to a different time.

There were contortionists.

We saw a joust. Kind of . . .

People played Red Rover.

Other shenanigans

We saw a pirate eat fire.

We found crystal dragon eggs a.k.a. geodes. My kid is into rocks and crystals. This was one of her favorite things at the festival.

Although, we missed seeing Queen Elizabeth I and didn’t dress up, we had a great time at the Renaissance Festival. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait 3 years to go again.
