Cincinnati, Newport, Erlanger

We didn't have much time to sight see while we were gone this weekend, but Sunday we did hit Newport, Kentucky which is just a bridge drive to Cincinnati....we wanted to eat lunch down on the river front before we left and hit a few shops!


This was the fireman who my sister in law took a picture of, I do believe that was Laura's idea.....and they did ring their bell for us without us even asking!
Amy said she took this picture because it reminded her of Brie......she was my photographer as I was driving! I kept saying Hey Amy get that, get this! She loves me...

I thought that building was cool over on the left....I'm not even sure what it is!
Just one of the bridges
And another bridge
And another......this was actually our view from the patio at Claddagh Irish Pub, it was so nice just sitting on the patio and eating, enjoying the view and the nice weather we had that day.


I tried to get a picture of one of the paddle boats that came by, but the railing was getting in my way from where I was sitting.
This was one of the little shopping squares there, they had a guy on stilts making balloon animals for the kids.
This was Brio again.....I just love this little restaurant...I've never ate there, I just love the look and the fountain they have out front...
Hey it's me! There is a story behind this.....this is right on the corner of Pete Rose Blvd, and Broadway in Cincy....right by the stadium! No where in Newport had a White Cincinnati Reds hat.....so we drove over the bridge and they dropped me off at the corner by a vendor and they were circling the block while I made my purchases for James.....he got a new shirt out of it to while I waited on them!


As we were going back over the bridge!
More on the bridge
And more....
And more
This was for James I'm sure........
That was his hat......that I had to pull teeth to get! lol Amy Amy...shut the window, don't let it blow out the window...AMy Amy...I'm shutting the window! lol
That's the cool Raddison Hotel in the back...it's circular.....
The Cincinnati sky line........it's really pretty....I wish we could have seen it from this angle at night....

Look that's me in the rearview mirror.........Amy you can stop taking pics now
Honestly I've never been in a car with so many back seat drivers in my life........
Look we are on our way home..........
I looked in my rear view mirror one more time to see if Bret's tour bus was trying to catch us and get us to go on tour with him........

Awwwww, well a girl can dream!

That's our Cincinnati/Poison Adventure........

Stay tuned as I chase Bret around my area of the country......
