Friday Five

Our roadtrip to Columbus last weekend for my niece's baptism was a bit of a whirlwind mostly comprised of time in the car. The eight hour drive took up a good chunk of Friday and after a late start, heavy rains, and bad traffic took over Sunday. Since Saturday was our only full day in the city, I knew I wanted to make the most of our limited time. While the evening was spent in celebration of my niece's baptism, we allotted a few hours during the day to explore Columbus.

We started off by visiting the Topiary Garden, which is modeled after Georges Seurat’s painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte. We followed this with a walk through the arts festival in the Columbus Commons area. As the temperatures were in the 90s we didn't stay long to haggle prices, and we opted to escape the heat to enjoy a late brunch in the Short North area at The Pearl. Below are five moments that brought a smile to my face during our short time in Columbus.
