If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Newport on the Levee and Newport Aquarium

Kelli was gone again this weekend. She attended a Student Leadership Institute Training that she has participated in for the past 3 years. She has earned a college scholarship and this year she went as an intern and helped the first year students. She had a blast!

So while she was having a good time, Tracy, Kerri and I decided to go down to Newport on the Levee and the Newport Aquarium. This is just across the Ohio River in Kentucky. I love being down on the Ohio River and watching the boats and stuff.

First we went into the Newport Aquarium. It has been several years since we were there. It's a really nice Aquarium and we saw some pretty strange and wonderful creatures. Here are just a few.
Like these jelly fish
And here's a Little Nemo guy
Some anemomes (sp?)
A Lobster

Then we went out on the Levee and watched the river and all the activities going on.
They had Octoberfest on the Levee going on and we were watching some guy with 2 little girls doing the chicken dance. They were so cute and having so much fun.

There's Cincinnati on the far side of the river.
One of the many riverboats.

And here's what Kerri was doing most of the time. Texting! Are you kidding me?!? With all the cool stuff to see, she stuck her nose in her phone. But that was a good time to her, so I say..."Whatever" :-)
I finally got her to actually pose for a picture. I really didn't even have to nag too much.
These guys were fun. They were playing some sort of drum and the sax. They were pretty good and then they had homemade instruments that the kids could join in with. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to them.
Then as we were leaving, we decided to stop and have an ice cream from Coldstone. Man! was this good. I'm not sure I've ever had one before. Wow! Good Stuff!

I love Satudays like this. Hope you all had a great weekend too.
