Otterville is a real place. I bet you read this title and thought you were getting some sort of made up story about an otter, right?
Welcome to the best kept secret of... I don't know, Kentucky? Is it even a secret? Did everyone know about Otterville besides myself?
Also, I am not really sure it's a "best kept secret". I mean, we loved it. LOVED IT! And it cost $7 for Henry to get in and was FREE for adults, which seems logical but if you go to many children's places you will find that is not always the case. (I AM LOOKING AT YOU EXPLORIUM). But it was also sorta random. Like, we walked in and there was a faded Rugrats banner. That's right.
How long has Otterville been around?? I am not at all apposed to the Rugrats, I was just surprised to see them. But decorations do not matter, what matters is the place, and we found the place extremely enjoyable!
So, I guess the point is, if you live anywhere near the Covington/Cincinnati area I suggest Totter's Otterville. When you first get there you will be concerned with why you let me talk you into this, but then your kids will have a blast and you will tell me thank you.
In other random news, I decided to bring my new Go Pro camera with me instead of my real camera (hence the cell phone pictures stolen from Boo's facebook page). I managed to take no real videos on my own but did send Henry into the playland with the camera, because why not.
I give you parenting with a Go Pro... If the camera had feelings (a la Toy Story) I feel like my Go Pro would give a deep sigh at the life he could have had. Actually, I think my fitbit might feel the same way.
(Also, for the record, I had the camera in the waterproof case, which is why it sounds like it is in an air tight box. It is. Lesson Learned. )
(Also again, look out Matt .... Henry may be putting in an application with the family business sometime soon)
