I just spent a couple of days in Ohio for the funeral of a family member, the less said about that the better. We actually made it through those days without killing anyone else. It was definitely an *interesting* trip.

I got a couple of pics of random family members after the funeral:

No, my kids aren't in either pic.

We stayed at a really nice place, Deer Creek Lodge, got a big discount because a family member works there.

We got a loft room, one of the larger rooms available:

The kids got the upper part, I got the lower level.

One of my kids left the remnants of his supper on the table, and had to clean it up later.

My younger son has an interesting concept of what constitutes "decorating"

My older son thought the local wildlife was the best part of the trip. He and I were outside and saw a skunk not more than 6 feet away from us. Of all the times for me to not have my camera handy :( There were a LOT of deer, we almost hit one with the van on the way there.

There was a very nice lounge area for relaxing, too bad we didn't have more time to enjoy it.

The view from the balcony out to the lake was terrific, morning and evening.

neat. I heard funeral and was expecting pics of gramma in the casket like that other guy.


Looks like a really nice hotel. I have to go away friday morning and don't think my hotel will look like that, especially for $32 a night...

the most fun I ever had at a funeral was when I was about 12 or so. We were playing hide and seek until I somehow locked myself in the room where they store empty coffins. At the time I did not know they were empty. I was very scared :/

No casket pics, I have a couple that someone else took but I didn't want to post them.

With the discount I got it was just over $50 a night, worth every penny plus :) The regular rate is upwards of $100 a night.

Well then I guess you'll just have to share your name with me then!! :D

I still doubt that they'd give you the discount, unless you manage to have a death in the family at the right time :fly:

Someone actually MISSED ME???!!! :heart: Didn't think anyone would!

The funeral was for a family member I hadn't seen in over ten years. The rest of the trip was very hectic but OK otherwise :cool:
