After Nashville, we drove through Kentucky and into Ohio.
We stopped in Columbus for dinner at a pizza place we found on called Rubino's. The pepperoni/double cheese pizza was yummy and piping hot. For those of you in Dallas, it was a little bit like Campisi's with it's thin, crisp crust.

As we were driving down the street to Rubino's to meet up with our call ahead order, we spotted Graeter's ice cream shop. I had heard that Graeter's was yummy from Modgirl and so we had to save room for an ice cream stop on our way back to the interstate of course! :)

I had mint chocolate chip on a sugar cone and Adrian had black raspberry chip and mocha chip. The mocha was AMAZING! We ate our ice cream and enjoyed watching a chipmunk and the fireflies beginning to blink. (Has anyone ever seen a chipmunk in Texas? I haven't and therefore find the little creatures especially cute and charming.)

AND they had the neatest ceiling fans inside. They all were connected by belts so that they all ran together off of one motor. It was neat. It was a very fun date on day two of driving cross country.

Have you ever been to a Graeter's?

What's your favorite ice cream shop and where is it?

What flavor do you like to get?

Cone or cup?


p.s. you guys are right, the road sign was from Kentucky. I forgot and thought it was after we were in Ohio but I was wrong. Sorry for a misleading clue and way to go for those of you who knew Kentucky!

Ohio... I should've known it considering I used to live in Columbus. I can't tell you how many times I've done the drive up through Nashville and Kentucky to Columbus.

I'm green with envy over Graeter's, but am thrilled that you got to experience it. Without a doubt, it is the best ice cream I've ever had. I love toffee-chip.

Woo hoo, I guessed right. I should have figured the door handles were Graeter's but I didn't know there were any in Columbus. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, home of Graeter's. The raspberry chip is my favorite! What fun travels. I have been to Texas a few times in the last couple of years, but only the San Antonio area. I really loved it there. I also see you have an affinity for Chicago. My hubs sister and family live there (Winnetka) so we visit often. Love the road trip posts.

So, what was the house? Just a neat place you saw or does it have some significance? Just curious, because it looks so neat.
