The Skyline

Weekends in Cincinnati are seemingly harder when we have to pack up both dogs and both people. I'm beginning to finally realize how impractical the 7 hour or so drive is to do on a Friday and Sunday. But the Saturday we get to spend in town is always amazing - we eat yummy food, see our friends and family, and inevitably go shopping somewhere fun. This time it was an Ikea trip. The dogs love it in Cincinnati too - they enjoy midday naps with my dad and running around my parents back yard.

We tried a new place, as I try to do when I am home, called the Incline Public House. It's really interesting as it is set atop a large hill where the incline (used to transport goods from the river up) used to exist. It has the most amazing view of our city ever - and I felt wonderful sipping a local beer while watching the sun set over the city. If you are curious, my review is on Yelp.
