It’s been a while since Mike and I have done any traveling, but this past week we put an end to that. Mike traveled all over the world as a corporate pilot and, since he retired, he doesn’t want to go anywhere… unless he has a good enough reason.
Well, we lost our dog Annabelle in 2019.
She was a Belgian Sheepdog, and one of only a few breeds I’m not allergic to, so it took some time to find another one. The puppy we found was in Ohio and that was all the reason we needed! We both had been wanting to visit the full sized Noah’s Ark and Creation Museum near Cincinnati. We decided it was worth driving a few hours out of our way – and we are so glad we did!
You may be asking now “what does this have to do with quilting?” Just hold on a little longer and you’ll see.
The Ark Encounter was the first spot on our agenda and it did not disappoint!
It opened to the public in 2019 and Answers in Genesis strove to make it as accurate to the Bible as possible. We learned so much and it was amazing!
The Bible states that the Ark had only one door and this symbolizes Jesus as the only way to salvation!
They have a small, but lovely zoo on the property, along with a Virtual Reality ride that was a blast! For more information please click here!
The next day we went to the Ark’s sister attraction, the Creation Museum, and it was fascinating also.
The exhibits and programs were wonderful plus – there were quilts in both main stairwells!
They were beautiful, and the one with circles was incredibly intricate! Click here for the story of the quilts and their maker.
We enjoyed all the exhibits, presentations, and the 4D Planetarium show.
The next day we picked up the puppy near Akron, and headed home.
It was a whirlwind adventure and we are so blessed. The next phase is housetraining our new little boy … while coming up with a name 🤪. I don’t know why it seems so hard this time. After seeing him do you have any suggestions?
