Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday; Hope you had a great weekend!  Ours was seriously jammed packed!  But all fun stuff- so no complaints here!


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!


Derek, his dad Mel, Thomas (birthday boy!), and his mom Reba




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!
