Great Deal at the Newport Aquarium

So I was looking into field trip ideas and I went to the Newport Aquarium's website. Can't say I have a burning desire to do this, but the current special might make it worth is, especially since Cade wants to go, he has wanted to see that sharkray since they got it..

Here's the deal! 2 kids get in free with one paying adult Jan 7-Mar 4.

Newport, KY – The winter months in Cincinnati can be cold, dreary and downright boring, but the Newport Aquarium’s Winter Family Hours can perk up your dull winter routine. From January 7th through March 4th, two kids (ages twelve and under) get in FREE with each adult paying full price.And new this year: Each kid will get a voucher for a FREE Kid’s Meal from participating Bob Evans Restaurants.*This offer will be valid all day, every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There are no coupons to cut and strollers are welcome during this event.

General Admission Pricing
$17.95 Adults
$15.95 Seniors (65+)
$10.95 Children (ages 3 through 12)
Children 2 and under are admitted free

From what I read, the school rate is $6 for anyone 3 years old thru grade 8, $7 for 9th thru 12th grade, $12 for adults.....For me, that comes out to be $62. So, using buy one adult get 2 kids free, I can buy tickets for me, Brett and Hannah for $53.85 and get everyone in. Certainly not a cheap day, but better than paying full price!

Hey, let us know if you decide to go! We are members and are going pretty often. We just went to the aquarium in Gatlinburg and ours is better! Theirs had lots of gimmicky stuff but the fish were no where near as cool as ours...

How are you doing emotionally with all this stuff with losing your dad?

We have been gone for a week...the house is full of stuff to unpack (it always looks like we are moving when we go out of town)...
love, Kas

We may wait until Feb. to go, this month is pretty busy and we are trying to find a new routine now that so much time isn't consumed with taking care of dad. Everyone seems to be coping OK, of course some days are much better than others.

The kids decided not to return to Monday school, so we are also making adjustments there. Fiercly loyal to their mom, the can't stand the hypocrisy of the whole thing. The politics have gotten to be too much for them.

Jay hates traveling for just that reason.....I will have the entire van packed full of rubbermaid totes and laundry baskets, not just that cute overnight bag!
