For the last part of our adventure in our state’s capital, my husband and I had planned on visiting the Columbus Museum of Art for the Rothko exhibit. As amazing as the exhibit was, I was also just very taken with the place in general.

To walk off some of the calories we happily consumed in Columbus for our anniversary, we decided to do some shopping (because shopping is cardio, never forget that). Since we were in Columbus, we had to visit Used Kids.

Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else.
