Friday- Derek's parents and nephew, Thomas, came over for Thomas' 18th birthday! We had reservations at Nicholason's, a pub downtown for Cincinnati's downtown restaurant week! I have to say, the food was great, and we will definitely be going back!
Saturday- Since it was Thomas' birthday, he picked the Cincinnati museum to check out. I have to admit, at first I was like, ugh a museum! Maybe I'll go shopping while you all go (half-joking of course). Well after going, I kinda want to go back (shhh don't tell my husband!) There are 3 museums in the middle of the city's old union terminal. We only had time to see the natural science and history museum! But it was very cool
|Excuse the brightness and our half closed eyes- Just wanted to show off our city's cool landmark!|

Oh, and we had time to see one movie in the Omnimax theater. Seriously- the coolest thing in the world!! I would go back tomorrow to see another show. We saw the feature on the Hubble Telescope and I was A-MAZED!
|If you have never been, look at how huge this screen is!!!|
|Oh yeah, had to through this picture into the group! This is me being frightened by the stuffed polar bear =)|
Saturday night- Derek went to the Reds game while I went to a wine tasting. Two of my friends from the program just moved in together and they had their housewarming party....while throwing a wine tasting. Great idea right?!?? Well the event was super fun and these lovely ladies made such great food! Afterwards a group of us went to Newport to meet up with Derek and his friends. Great night with great friends!
