Family Weekend

Jason, Connor, and I spent a little family time together in the Newport/Florence/Cincinnati area last weekend.

Saturday morning was spent at the Newport Aquarium.  Connor was obsessed with the sharks, as well as with the divers who were cleaning the tanks and feeding the fish.  He cried when we left.

After a yummy lunch at Five Guys (our first time eating there) and a trip to the candy store for some gummy sharks (for Connor) and a caramel apple (for me), we attempted an afternoon nap (to no avail).

Jason's favorite part of the weekend was yet to come.  At the beginning of baseball season, Jason immediately checked to see when the Cubs would be in town playing the Reds, and scooped up two tickets for last Saturday's game (Since Connor is still 2, he was free...his last free MLB trip, for sure.).

We arrived at the park early (as my baseball-loving husband needs to see batting practice).  The weather was perfect, the food was good (LaRosa's pizza and ice cream for me, and pizza and a shared Lemon Ice for the boys), and the game ended in our favor with a Cubbies win!  :)

We left early Sunday morning in time to make it to church, with a little boy in the backseat who wouldn't take off his (free) Reds hat...Daddy did not approve but let him wear it anyway.  :)

I cannot remember a more fun-filled weekend with two of my favorite people in a long time.
