Cleveland (Day 45)

Our stay in Cleveland is almost at an end and I thought everyone might want a peek at what we've been up to in the intervening time that we haven't been sharing with you...

Mostly, we've been sorting and emptying the 3000+ square foot home that Stephen's grandparents formerly inhabited. It's been a lot of work, emptying bookshelves, taking down art collections, and calling in extended family members to help lighten the load, but I hope this will make a nice home for Cindy & Michael once it's finished.

In between all of that, though, we've been going on day-trip excursions to visit other Ohio family and see some sights. I'd love to sit here and just list everything we did, but you'd probably rather see the pictures than read my ramblings, so without further ado...
