So Long

Tomorrow morning before the crack of dawn (seriously, we’re getting up at 5), Stephen will be driving me and junior to the airport. Harry and I are on our way to Columbus, Ohio, home of Jeni’s Ice Cream. Jeni’s just got a flurry of publicity here in NYC because Jeni will be shipping small batches of her apparently fabulous stuff to one fancy shmancy market here in Brooklyn. The price: $10 a pint! Yowza. I think we’ll be eating as much of this as we can while we’re there and leave it at that. Although if it’s as good as it sounds (the Dark Chocolate is described as “A chocolate made with the most amount of chocolate and the least amount of anything else”), I may just be reporting back here that it’s worth $10 a pint.

So, anywhere else in Columbus we should hit? We’re staying with friends so we don’t have a ton of control over where we go, but they’re adventurous… And while we’re at it, any tips on flying with toddlers would be most appreciated. Harry’s really the unpredictaboy lately, so I have no idea what to expect from his first flight.

We’ll be back Monday night, so don’t look for anything new here until Tuesday at least.

Oh, and check out Mommy Poppins on Friday for a guest post by me!

    Please do stop by and see us for a taste — or three. We'd love to have you 🙂

    And be advised: it's ComFest weekend at Goodale Park in the Short North… could be fun if your friends want to go (we'll be there, too, scooping), otherwise I'd recommend checking out any of our other shops to avoid the traffic/congestion.

    Enjoy Columbus!

    Wow, Ryan, ComFest looks amazing! The list of food vendors has me salivating already. Thanks so much for the tip.

    We're here already, btw. It ain't Brooklyn, that's for sure! Grass and trees and no traffic noise… ahh.

    No tips about Columbus, but as for flying with toddlers, bring lots of little things to play with (Claire loved playing with playdoh on the tray), lots of little snacks (sometimes this would keep her more entertained than the toys!), and lots and lots of patience.
