I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend, it was a great weekend for our family…especially because we hadfamily in town and we all enjoyed parts of Cincinnati we haven’t experienced before. It was a weekend on the water for us and we were able to go to the Aquarium, the Duck Tour on the Ohio River and dinner on the B&B Riverboat in Newport. We also enjoyed a different raft cruise on the Little Miami River from Waynesville that my mom organized for us. We indulged on fresh, live lobster that was delivered to us on Friday evening from New England and it was delicious! The last time we cooked fresh lobster was when we lived there over 10 years ago! And because the weather was so beautiful we ended the weekend working hard to get our hay bailed and in the barn…don’t worry I wasn’t lifting any hay bails being almost 6 months pregnant – I was there for support and to keep everyone hydrated as much as possible!
There are too many pictures to post but I wanted to post a few of the highlights from the weekend!
Saturday we were in Newport for most of the afternoon enjoying the warm weather and the Ride the Ducks tour there. I also had no idea you could get a Helicopter tour over Cincinnati for only $30 per person! There could be some great Father’s Day gift ideas in the many family friendly things to do in Cincinnati!! I had a lot of fun on the Duck tour and would absolutely do it again! Parts are a little shaky since Luke was trying to help me take some of the video!
After dinner on the B&B Riverboat we walked around and then they started the dance floor – holy cow we were all laughing hysterically at Luke because he was dragging us all out onto the dance floor and we have lots of video footage of him dancing the night away!
It was a fun weekend and hard to see it come to an end! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time, so Claire….Mission Accomplished! Thank YOU! (We won’t talk about the fact that I laughed SO hard I had to change my pants! Ha ha!) We had so much fun with Grammy Diane and Auntie Claire and we are already planning next year’s trip and hoping we can make it out to Cape Cod for our beach trip next Summer! Now we are getting excited to see our family from Phoenix in two weeks! I can’t wait to meet my new nephew and Luke has been asking every day to see his favorite person – cousin Nathan! Plenty more adventures to come…!
