Duke Energy Holiday Trains



We went to the museum center to check out the Holiday Junction. This is the train display that they have every year. This was our 2nd time to go and just like last year, we had a great time. There is so much to see and do and if you have someone in your family that loves trains they would love this.
You can also visit with the big guy in red ( Santa) and you can talk with his reindeers, Pogie and Patter. I love these reindeers, it is so neat to watch them interact with the people. If you have smaller kids, they can take a train ride around the winter wonder land they have set up. It is a beautiful scene of snow and animals. To be honest I was a little jealous that I could not fit on the train..lol..
Your admission also includes the museum visit or you can purchase tickets to all the museums. If you are a Duke Energy costumer you can get free tickets to the train display. 
While you are at the museum you can check out Rocky Mountain Express showing at the Omnimax.  My dad and Doug have seen this movie and they both really liked it.
 The museum is located at 1301 Western Ave. Cincinnati, Ohio.
The train display is open from November 11,2014 till Jan. 04,2015.

Columbus Commons Festival of Lights




We were in Columbus, Ohio a couple of weeks ago to watch the Bruins play hockey. After the game we stopped by the Columbus Commons park to see their lights. This was so beautiful. They had so many lights and different displays. They have 200,000 LED lights. They have the most beautiful tall tree decorated and in front of it was a sled with light up reindeer's that moved. 
If you are in Columbus anytime between now and Jan. 1st,2015 make sure you check this park out. The lights come on at dusk and stay on until 11pm.
The park is located at 160 S High Street.

Mount St. Joseph Cemetery Dollhouse tombstone



I am the kind of person that loves to visit cemetery's. I love the old ones. I can walk around and look at all the old tombstones for hours. They hold so much history and some of them hold spirits also. One day we were at Mount St. Joseph cemetery and we came across this tombstone from the 1800's that belonged to three children. The thing that was so unique about this tombstone is, it's a dollhouse.  It has little rooms in it with some furniture and a little stuffed giraffe. This was so neat to see and to see that it was built in the 1800's and is still standing now. I have a emf voice recorder and I laid it next to the grave and asked if any of the children would like to talk to us. I walked away and when I came back my recorder had turned itself off. Doug took a pic of the tombstone before we walked off and left my voice recorder and in the pic he caught a big orb.
If you would like to see the dollhouse tombstone it is located in the Mount St. Joseph cemetery at 4500 Foley Road.Cincinnati, Ohio.
The tombstone is in section 2.
If you would like to see more photos of the tombstone check out my facebook group page it is Lyinn and Doug's Haunted Adventures.

Sharon Woods Heritage Village Ghost Investigation



On Saturday 10/25/2014, we did a ghost investigation at Sharon Woods Heritage Village. We were with the nice people from Cornerstone Paranormal. We did our own investigation, they just took us into the buildings and told us the history of what happened there. Now I have been on alot of ghost hunts but I have to say this place was creepy as hell. In a few of the houses I was picking up lights of energy or spirits flying around on my night vision infrared camera. At first we though it was dust but one of the guys from Cornerstone that was with us had an infrared camera and his will not pick up dust, plus when you shined the flashlight you can tell the dust was stationary so it was not blowing around, what I picked up was flashes of light that was flying all around us. I was filming them and in one of the videos you can see this big ball of light being thrown at us. ( I will post a still photo of it that I took from the video). The video is also posted at the bottom of this page.
But wait that's not all we saw and heard while there. Oh no..while in one of the houses as we were downstairs you could hear someone walking upstairs and no one was in the house but us. 
In one of the buildings that use to be a store, we were all siting around in the dark and one of the guys on the investigation with us set his flashlight on the table and the guys from Cornerstone was asking questions using a ghost box. One of the questions he asked was if the spirit could turn the flashlight on about 2 or 3 minutes later the flashlight came on. We were all like what the hell...lol..
All in all this is a really neat place to do an investigation. If you ever have the change to do one there don't pass it up and if you ever get to go with the people from Cornerstone Paranormal go. They are a very friendly group of people.   
If you would like to see all the videos and pics we took from this place as well as other haunted places go to my facebook group page which is Lyinn and Doug's Haunted Adventures.

Lane Hooven House



While we were in Hamilton, Ohio we took a drive to see the Lane Hooven House. Now if you know me then you know I love architecture so this house was an amazing work of art. This is a restored octagonal house and was once the home to Clark Lane, a prominent Hamilton industrialist. This is one of only 400 octagonal structures in the United States. I loved this house. It is so beautiful and the details are breathtaking. If you are in the Hamilton, Ohio area check this house out and  make sure you look at the roof and all the colors it has on it.
The house is located at 319 North Third Street. Hamilton, Ohio









Blooms and Berries Farm Visit



We took a little trip to Bloom and Berries Farm Market. This is a beautiful farm with lots of things to see and do. We basically went for two reason. One being that Doug wanted to practice some of his photo skills and I was the model and the second reason was, when we went it was their Sunflower show. I love Sunflowers they are one of my favorite flowers. This place did not disappoint with the Sunflowers. There seemed to be miles and miles of them. They were so pretty and you could cut some to bring home with you for I think fifty cents a stem.
They were so beautiful.  Sunflowers is not all this place has so don't feel like you wont see anything if you go because the Sunflowers are over. This places has hayrides, a corn maze that is 7 acres big and shaped like a tractor. Yes you read that right 7 acres ( hello children of the corn..lol..), they have some very cute farm animals and so much more. They also sell pumpkins, produce, fruit and so much more. Oh and they also have some of the biggest and most unique looking gourds I have ever seen. I saw this one and he was shaped like a dragon..OMG I was so in love and yes he came home with me. They also have this outhouse that has these plastic legs with pants pulled down and when you set in the outhouse and put your legs up against them, they look like your legs..so funny and cute.  All the people who work there that we came in contact with were so friendly and nice. I really love this place and if you are looking to have some beautiful fall photos taken this is the place to go ( and if you need a great photographer hit up Doug as you can see from my photos he is amazing..if he can make me look that good then he is good..lol..)
Blooms and Berries is located at 9669 S. St. Rt. 48. Loveland, Ohio.

I know you will have a blast at this place and if you have kids they will love it!!!
