Where Have I Been?

Hi friends-

If you are wondering why there has been no food on this blog lately...I can explain!
I honestly didn't think you would be interested in seeing pictures of the foods below basically over and over and over and over again:

Literally for about 10 weeks this is about the extent of what was coming out of my kitchen or going into my mouth....

Or what about the time we DID go out to eat and picked the restaurant specifically because they had these tasty little guys on the menu

fried pickles. mmmmmmmm

Any guesses why?????????
If you haven't guessed by now I guess I will just have to come out and tell you :)

Baby E is on the way!! So exciting/terrifying!! :)

Happily fresh food, vegetables, (some) meats, tofu and other healthy things are finally making their way back into my diet... not to mention the desire to cook and go out to dinner.... so maybe I'll be a little more regular on here now.

Since I've been feeling better this baby has been all over the place! To a crazy bachelorette party in New Orleans:

 A BFF wedding in Dayton, Ohio:

A trip to California to visit his or her grandparents:

And lots of other random adventures :)

Let the adventures continue!!

Dog Days of Summer

Last Sunday Rob and I and our friends Greg and Chelsea took the pups for some fun in the sun at the CRC Dog Days of Summer Event.  Basically, before they drain the pools, CRC does a day where they let the dogs go nuts in the pool for a $10 donation to CRC.

First of cool is this pool? CRC didn't have cool pools like this when I was growing up... I mean seriously I want to come back here on a non dog-day and just play...

It was Nala's first time swimming and she loved it... she was a water dog right away and was so brave!

Maggie was her usual nutty self....get the ball, drop the ball, bark until you throw it again, repeat...
see video:

At the end of the day we had two VERY worn out dogs. Mission accomplished!

Maggie is already looking forward to next year's event!

Washington Park Opening Weekend

Yes, it was a while ago...but here are a few shots of the gorgeous new Washington Park that opened a few weeks ago...apologies for some of the blurry pics. I could get a cup of coffee and watch the kids and puppies play in the fountain for much fun!

Dog Park with a view!- Maggie is anxiously awaiting her first visit...

How much would you have LOVED this multi-kid swing, spinning thing and castle slide when you were a kid?

 If you haven't been you should check it out! Downtown Cincinnati is making me swell with pride lately...don't miss out on the action!
