a lil’ family stay-cation.

A couple of weeks ago we took the day off and had a mini-vacation here in Cincy.  We started off the day by heading down to one of our favorite spots, Coffee Emporium, for some tasty treats and the most yummilous coffee in town. We were shocked to run into some out of town friends as soon as we got there….funny thing is we were really bummed as we had tried to get together with them the day before and it hadn’t worked out due to all the rain. It was so awesome having an unexpected breakfast with them! :)

Then we headed out to a Cincinnati Reds game. With ALL the rain we’ve been having, we lucked out with perfect weather to enjoy a day game!

My kids chowed on junk food, which is a total “treat” for them.

I thought for sure the kids would be bored by the 5th inning and we would have to leave early. I was shocked that when the 9th began, they were mad I wanted to leave and beat the crowds!  It hit me for the first time that having 3 boys I will most likely be frequenting Reds games….which is completely fine by me!

After that we came home and relaxed. The next day I forced Brett to help me clean out our storage closet and I donated 14 bags of clothes, and also have 8 bags for our upcoming yard sale. Wow to feeling like a hoarder.

We also picked out our new hard wood floor for our kitchen renovation. (Yay!!!) :)We checked to see what it would look like with the cute antique table I snagged, and I think they are going to look great together!

Can’t wait to share more on our first floor renovation soon.

Gail - AMEN girl! I want a day like that day too! And I love the Reds! Nick and I need to come over and go to a game with your brood! (when I was an intern at the Enquirer, they sent all of us there as a farewell gift with amazing behind-the-plate seats –such a fun memory!) Oh, and funny, one of my first “family” vacations, I was about Riah’s age and we went to Cincy to see a Reds game and go to Kings Island! :)

PS – YEAH to those yummy hardwood floors! JEALOUS!

brian rickey - Beautiful pictures as always, but if you want to see some real baseball you should wait until the Cardinals come to town. :)
