Creation Museum

This past weekend, our family drove to the Cincinnati, Ohio area to go to the Gap outlet visit friends.

The water tower in Florence cracks me up. I'm laughing out loud now as I'm posting. Where other than Kentucky is a city proud of saying y'all?! It's been painted this way for at least 20 years.

Three miles from the Gap outlet is The Creation Museum is also in northern KY. Thankfully January is buy one get one free month and Mr. Intensity was free. We paid ~ $25 for our family and we were there about 3 hours. If it were warmer, we would have walked around the botanical gardens and visited the petting zoo.

Notice Hubby is wearing a UK hat and no coat. He's a UofL grad.

My honest impressions of the museum:

- We went on Saturday and it was very crowded.
- The museum is geared for readers, or children older than Mr. Intensity.

- It was the first museum I've been to that esteemed the Bible. Lots of Bible - everywhere. I believe in the Bible and it was almost too pushy for me. The above sign was quite witty saying, "This space is still evolving."

- We will go again when Mr. Intensity is older.

If you live near the Creation Museum I recommend a visit, especially during January.

While you're there - you can also visit the Gap outlet. It's a real outlet...as in, the last stop before the trash so you have to check for holes, missing buttons, etc. I got some AMAZING deals. Like Gap pants for $7. Hubby got Banana Republic dress pants for $10. Best of all was a Gap winter coat for Mr. Intensity for $10.

The Gap outlet was awesome. The museum, well, I had higher expectations. It was impressive for sure. Maybe because I was viewing it through the eyes of a 4yr-old with a tiny attention span. I would have enjoyed it more if I'd been by myself - but it wasn't about me. :)
