The pictures ended up being rescheduled due to the crappy weather. Thank goodness because I’m sure we would have looked like death in any of the family pictures. Not Charlie of course; she would have looked adorable in all pictures ;) I’m so excited to get these done!
Saturday night, Derek and I had tickets to UFC fight night. If you did not know this about us already, Derek and I are really big fans of the UFC. Most of our favorite date nights in college and the first few years of marriage is going belly-up at BWW’s and watching UFC fights. When we lived at our apartment, we went so often that the bartender (Jason) knew us, would save seats for us, and keep the bud lights coming all night without any requests. Derek and I loved those nights (especially because the BWW’s was right across the street from our apartment) and think back on those memories all the time. Anyway, it is on our bucket list to go to Vegas and see a PPV fight. Well, a smaller “fight night” came to Cincinnati this weekend, and while we didn’t know all the fighters, it was still an experience! It was a little intense at first between the crowd and seeing MMA fighting in real life. But by the end of the night, we were yelling with the rest of them. We had a great time!
Sunday was of course my first Mother’s Day! Derek had made the weekend so special for me. My mom came down and we went to a late lunch at Heritage Tastings. The menu was inspired by Downton Abbey and was a fixed 5 course meal with unlimited tea. First, I love hot tea! Second, it was at this adorable little cottage and family owned/operated. We were so impressed by the whole experience. Our reservations were right in the middle of Charlie’s regular nap time; however, she was so excited by the new atmosphere, girlfriend stayed up the whole time! We were a little nervous, but she was great the entire 2 hours (whew, thank goodness)!
Now on to some actual photos…
Unfortunately, this was our only family picture of the day that was not blurry. We really need to work on getting more family pictures!
My mom finally captured a photo of Charlie smiling while I’m not behind the camera, yay!
At lunch…you can see all the cute little teapots in the back! Such a fun experience.
This weekend was busy busy busy, but sure was a memorable one!
Hope you had a great Mother’s Day and weekend
