A wonderful weekend...roof top dining, Super Dad and a welcome home!

It's summer break people...why can't I stay on top of things? I feel so behind...probably because I'm out in the sunshine 80% of my days lately. I'll get in my summer blogging routine soon, I promise.

This weekend was a perfect combination of fun, celebrating and relaxing. The weather was great and I spent it with the people I love most. Saturday afternoon I went to Washington Park for an amazing flea market called City Flea. The booths were full of vintage and homemade goodies and the natural popsicle I devoured was amazing. The smell of food trucks, the eclectic crowd and the ability to dangle your feet in the fountain when you need a break all made it a fun afternoon. I went with my friend Andrea and we will definitely go back. All you Cincy girls, check out the website here for future dates and mark them on your calendars!
That evening Drew and I went to Cock and Bull near our house and enjoyed some roof top dining. We tried some new beers, talked about our future and relaxed. We stayed put for at least 2 and a half hours. Total relaxation people.
Sunday we celebrated Father's day. We are blessed that we live close to both my parents and Drew's parents so we got to celebrate with both our dads! I cooked for my family (you know a Pioneer Woman recipe was involved) and then we took my Dad to see the new Superman movie: Man of Steel. We all LOVED it. I would highly recommend seeing it!!! Then we went to Drew's parents house where my sister in law had just flown in from spending almost 4 weeks in Italy! She came bearing gifts, which I'll share later and we enjoyed a nice Italian meal and then played some new songs on their amazing player piano. It really was a fantastic weekend! Can't wait to catch up on all of your weekends as well!

Sounds like a great weekend - love that outdoor dining and long, drawn-out dates :) And I totally forgot to check the City Flea calendar this year - enjoyed checking it out last year and will definitely have to get back! I had one of those popsicles too....

Aww I love that you guys got to see BOTH of your dads for Father's Day! That is definitely a great benefit of living close to both sets of parents. :)

Also, if your sister-in-law has any advice for me on her time spent in Italy - I am all ears!
