I took the kids to Ohio last week. We had fun. My sis-in-law had her wisdom teeth out, and I was able to help around the house and with the boys.
On Tuesday we went to a local farm. I googled 'educational places in dayton, ohio.' So I wasn't really sure what to expect.
It was great. There was a little education center that you first went in and paid. Then you could walk around the farm - it is a working farm, so there are animals and big tractors. It is also educational, so when you go into the sheep barn or the chicken coop there are signs and posters telling facts about the animals.
Kind of like the zoo, but with more 'educational' type information. and less of a crowd!
