Cincinnati Visit

This past weekend we traveled to Cincinnati to help out Holly and attend my cousin Kelly’s wedding on Saturday. It was a fun visit, with plenty to do. We also had the chance to celebrate Mari’s birthday with the Hyland clan.


Cincinnati Visit

Last week we were in Cincinnati. It was spring break here so we took the opportunity to spend the week in Cincinnati. Highlights include hanging out with family, a date night with Simon and Rachel, dinner with the Herrels, and Elsie’s birthday party.

Cincinnati Visit

Last week we went to Cincinnati to see the family and work.

Monday: We drove to Cinti. Rose did awesome and totally rocked it – 9:15.
Tuesday: I went to work, Susan and the kids went to the art museum.
Wednesday: Everyone had a snow day, but I went in to work. The Donleys and Beinkempers came to Mar-Mar and Be-Bob’s for some sledding. For dinner we went to the Herrels’.
Thursday: I went to work. Susan and the kids went to the aquarium. We had dinner at Skyline with the Romans, but Susan stayed home with Rose and Lu because Lucia was not feeling well.
Friday: I took the day off and Susan went to observe at the Cincinnati Waldorf School preschool. In the evening many Hyland and Appels came to Mar-Mar and Be-Bob’s for dinner.
Saturday: Drove home. Rose rocked it again – 8:55. Good to be home. We actually took Mari to the Dr right when we got home because a rash she had was not looking good. Turned out to be OK. 🙂

Thanksgiving in Cincinnati

This past week we headed to Cincinnati for the week. I went to work for a few days and then it was on to Thanksgiving festivities. It was a good, busy visit. We arrived Saturday night and got settled in. On Sunday we headed to church with Mar-mar and then hung out around the house. Monday night was dinner at the Caf at Xavier and then we headed to a Men’s basketball game. Both are always highlights.

On Friday Lucia and I went for a hike with Be-Bob, Jill, and Madelyn while Susan and the kids hit Ikea. Dinner was the traditional Friday night LaRosa’s.

Trip to Cincinnati

This past weekend we went to Cincinnati so I could work for a few days and also to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary.

As usual, it was a fun, busy trip. I had to work Thursday and Friday. On Thursday the rest of the family went to the zoo with my mom, Jill, Elsie, and Madelyn. In the evening we went to the Lumenocity dress rehearsal. On Friday I left work early and we headed to the museum center for a couple of hours of exploring. Saturday morning we met Will and the girls downtown to play and we all met up at Mar-Mar and Be-Bob’s for dinner. Sunday we had brunch with my newly-ordained cousin Bill and his friend from church. Monday I had to work in the morning and then it was time for the drive home.

One other important thing to note about this trip is that Lucia was awesome in the car. She did really well, especially since when we traveled in June she did not enjoy it.
