Back in Toledo...for a while

We've been home for about a week visiting family and friends. Have been real busy living it up, saw lights at the zoo, Sweeney Todd at Levis (excellent), mom took the kids to COSI, played in the snow, ate lots of good food, you get the picture.

Next week we are off to visit Megan's family in Erie.

Sweeney Todd

Megan and I went out with Jeff and Steph to Levis Commons. We ate at Biaggi's and caught Sweeney Todd on opening night (in US). I loved the music and the overall story, gave it a 9 on IMDB. That is one star down from being one of my favorites, as I only rate 10 movies with 10 stars.

We had a nice night out.

Intro to Geocaching

This week a colleague of mine from the Toledo office was visiting for a week of training in St Helens. On Saturday we took him around to see a bit of Chester and then on to Wales. He is an avid geocacher so we decided to look for a couple of caches near Conwy. It was really exciting to find this little plastic container that others had hidden in the old rock wall. We read through the long list of people who found it before and left their little trinkets in the collection. How cool, thanks Richard!

Sunday we went into Manchester and walked around the Christmas markets. Later on we faced the daunting traffic leaving the city and decided instead to go back to the Printworks and watch a movie (Golden Compass - really good).
