During the past year...
London & Scandinavian Cruise
Since we would not be able to get away in October to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we elected to celebrate earlier in the summer. We chose to take a Scandinavian cruise, adding a few days before and after exploring London, including seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the West End.

|Lots of Trips to the Theater
Music, Song and Dance
We had a number of season subscriptions which took us into Columbus for Broadway Across America, the Columbus Symphony, New Albany for the orchestra and here in Newark for the orchestra and plays at Weathervane.
Bob connected with the NCG group this year to get table space and ran his Endor scenario four nights. Cheryl ended up attending the whole convention this year and even attended events while Bob was running his scenario. The board game collection in the basement keeps growing.
|Bob Con II
Bob Con returned for the second straight year with lots of friends and gaming.
We made various trips into Franklin Park to see the orchids, butterflies and the new Chihuly exhibit.
Cheryl finally traded away the Honda Civic for a new Subaru Crosstrek. The AWD will hopefully be better on the driveway if we get snow this winter (though we'd be happy not to test that out!).
|Columbus Half Marathon
Cheryl and Bob walked the half marathon for the first time this year. It was a beautiful day, and Bob only got one blister (though it covered most of his foot).

We made our annual visit to the Ohio Renaissance Festival in October this year to meet up with friends from college. Bob was excited that our available weekend coincided with the Tartan Terrors visit. We also checked out the usual favorites.
Bob only carved a small pie pumpkin this year, but the Roman soldier was still a fun display.
The Black Keys tour passed through Columbus in October, so we made the trip to Nationwide Arena to see them again.
