One Last Summer Hoorah!

We spent this weekend with one last summer family fun "stay-cation."  We loaded up the the truck, shipped the dogs off to the grandparents, and drove off into the sunset to Cincinnati.   Our little family of four met up with Uncle Bob, Aunt Jess, Gramz and Grampz for a weekend of baseball and underwater sea creatures!

First stop...a MLB game where we showed up in our Cubs gear! Can you tell who is the least excited to go to the game in this picture? Ha!

 There were statues of decorated pigs all around the city. This big was definitely ready for a baseball game right outside of The Great American Ballpark. Big C and Big Girl C made a fast friend with him!

One more pose outside the stadium before cheering on the Cubs to a VICTORY!!  It's funny, we have another picture just like this outside of the same stadium from earlier this summer...only we are all in Cincinnati Reds gear! 

Go Cubs Go! Go Cubs Go! Hey Chicago, what-ya say... 

Cubs are gonna WIN TODAY!!!  

Still going strong at 11:00 pm..however someone was over the pictures...

Sunday we visited The Newport Aquarium to take a  peak into underwater life. 

How would you measure up to a hammer head shark?  

Big Girl C LOVED the aquarium!  She couldn't get enough of all of the fish and underwater creatures. She love the exhibits where she could touch some of the underwater life.  Big Girl C was also attached to Uncle Bob the whole weekend.  She got to "pet" a horseshoe crab...

and a shark. 

Mama had some fun too!  I hope this never happens with a live alligator! 

The bird sanctuary was so fun!  These little guys were shy at first, but quickly ate all of the nectar.  I made it out without getting bird droppings on me which was an added bonus!

Thanks Cincinnati for a great weekend and a CUBS WIN!
