Smale Riverfront Park

Smale Riverfront Park

Have you had a chance to visit the Smale Riverfront Park in Downtown Cincinnati yet?  This sprawling park along the waters of the Ohio river is a wonderland for kids…and parents too quite honestly.  I had as much fun as them exploring the new additions to the park.  There are climbing walls, huge slides, larger...

2015 Free Shakespeare in the Park presented by Cincy Shakes

­ The Cincinnati theater scene is pretty awesome and has a lot to offer, but when you have a large family sometimes it’s not in the budget to take in many shows and performances.  Luckily though we have a pretty wide array of FREE performances in our area, from stage productions to concerts.  And the...
Spend a Day in Hamilton Ohio

Spend a Day in Hamilton Ohio

I’m not sure how I went thirty-some years without visiting the city of Hamilton.  Hamilton is a bit of a drive from our house, and until earlier this year I had no idea what this city had to offer.  I’m sure glad we have finally spent some time exploring that area!   It all started...
Northside Farmers Market

Northside Farmers Market

I love to visit Farmers Markets as often as I can for fresh food to use in my kitchen.  This month we visited a new to us market, the Northside Farmers Market which takes place in Hoffner Park on Hamilton Avenue in Northside during the warmer months.  The Northside Farmers Market is unique in that...

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

During Spring Break this year we spent a day exploring the city of Hamilton, Ohio.    We spent the majority of our time that day traipsing around the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum.   What a magnificent park it is!  We wandered over hills, through the woods, by the gardens and around ponds on a...
Bockfest Parade 2015

Bockfest Parade 2015

We have gone to Bockfest for years.  We’ve drank the Bock beer, hung out at Bockfest Hall, cheered on the Sausage Queen, taken brewery tours and church tours…but we have never gone to the Bockfest Parade.  Until tonight.  In years past we’ve missed it due to other circumstances…sick kids, bad weather, other engagements, and I’ve...
Old West Festival 2014

Old West Festival 2014

Fall is the perfect time for festivals, and one of the best festivals in our area (in my humble opinion) is the Old West Festival in Williamsburg, Ohio.  Each year we’ve been lucky enough to receive tickets to this event as part of my promoting the festival.   I love promoting this festival, as it’s one...
