D-Day Normandy 1944 at the Omnimax


We recently watched D-Day Normandy 1944 at the Cincinnati Omnimax. It is a look at what took place on that historical day. Our family had mixed reviews on this film.  My husband and Ivy, 14 years old, really enjoyed it. Isabella, 5 years old, fell asleep about 10 minutes in. I liked the storyline but the film included a lot of overhead panoramic views. This actually made me a little nauseous. I had to close my eyes for a moment a few times throughout. Overall, it was a decent educational film and worth watching.

The Classic Grilled Cheese Donut at Tom & Chee

Looking for a fun dinner option that the kids will be talking about for days? Perhaps Tom & Chee is the place for you!

We had a family day trip to Newport on the Levee in Newport, KY this weekend.  We had the pleasure of eating dinner at Tom & Chee.  We each got “The Classic” grilled cheese donut.  It is cheddar on a glazed donut.  It sounds odd and I was skeptical at first.  They were amazing!  The combination of the saltiness in the cheddar and the sweetness of the donut was a perfect combination.  The kids loved it!  Obviously this is not good for you but it was a great treat dinner.

It’s very kid friendly.  They had an outdoor seating area so we could eat, chat, and people watch in the beautiful weather.  There is a television tuned to cartoons inside if that’s your thing.  It’s a casual laid-back place.

The menu includes many grilled sandwich options, soups, and salads.  They will add potato chips to your sandwiches as well.  The prices are reasonable. Around $20 for our family of 4.  The classic grilled cheese donut is $4.
