Cute family: Christine, Matt, and Zoe! Thanks guys, for having me over for a couple of days! I enjoyed it!
Taken: May 3, 2011
Scott enjoyed the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference in Indy with 3 other professors from Cal State Fullerton: (left to right) Nicole Engelke, Patrick Kimani, and Todd CadwalladerOlsker
Scott gave a joint talk with Todd CadwalladerOlsker on the subject of permutations and combinations -- GREAT crowd that included my 7-10th grade math teacher from Lincoln, NE: Leona Penner!
The convention center is in downtown Indianapolis.
After the conference, I made the 2 hour drive to this spot: front porch of my brother Matt's house! He and Christine have lived here for almost 3 years, but will be moving to Milwaukee soon.
Gorgeous flowering tree in the front of the house -- perfect weather in Cincinnati on this mid-April day.
This tree was in peak blossoming form during my stay here :-) Yay!
They've had too much rain around here. From a vista in Ault Park, we got this view of the lowland areas below, much of them covered in excess water.
Spring time is an especially nice time to celebrate new trees in bloom!
Dafodils ad infinitum!
Christine and Matt took me to Cheesecake Factory for dinner -- DELICIOUS! And enough food to serve for 2 meals :-)
Christine had the good judgement to order a slice of cheesecake, which we enjoyed at the house later :-) YUMMMMM!!!
While Matt and Christine were busy at a rehearsal, I took a trip to Cincinnati's Eden Park, which offered glorious views of the Ohio River and surrounding areas.
Eden Park in Cincinnati is home to a lush conservatory. I enjoyed browsing through the tropical environment inside!
Easter lily tree, in honor of Easter, which is just one week away.
This is dense vegetation the likes of which I haven't seen in a long while!
Large, colorful goldfish occupy the waterways of the deep recesses of the Conservatory.
Pretty waterful drops down at the far end of the Conservatory!
The Ohio River looks into northern Kentucky and the city of Newport, KY.
More of the Ohio River. The day was growing increasingly gray as time went on, but the rain never really caused us too much trouble.
I went for a nice jog around Eden Park on an overcast day in Cincinnati.

The Art Museum of Cincinnati
A good portion of the Art Museum is devoted to artists from Cincinnati and works that portrayed the development of the city 100+ years ago.
