Life is good. I’m so thankful for our little family. We had a great time last weekend celebrating Mother’s Day. Since we’ll be moving back to Pittsburgh soon (more on that later) we want to get some things in that we’ve never done and visit places that we enjoy. On Saturday we traveled up the street to the Worthington Farmer’s Market. Like I’ve said before, we live in a great location – right between 2 great farmers markets. It gets really crowded. Since we are usually up fairly early we got there shortly after it opened. Once we got settled and started to walk around Owen spotted a garbage truck. This was the coolest thing ever (at the moment) for him! He was super excited, and had to watch it back up and dump the garbage out. Oh toddler boys :). Owen is loving trucks right now. After the garbage truck drove away he was all about the dogs walking around. I think he could have walked around there all day and just smiled at the dogs.
Our next stop was the Franklin Park Conservatory. We’ve never been before, and we wanted to make sure that we got to see it before we moved. My favorite part of it was all of the butterflies. Owen was able to get really close to some of them. He also loved all the stairs, fish, and waterfalls. I’m glad that we were able to get there while we are still in town.
Now it was time for lunch. We decided to stay in the Bexley area for lunch, and we ate at C’est Si Bon Cafe. They had delicious crepes, but it did take a bit for our order to arrive. While we were waiting we stopped next door to a shop called Urban Emporium. It was an adorable little shop, and I ended up getting a Made in Ohio shirt for Owen :). After our bellies were pretty full we stopped at Graters for some ice cream. Owen got his own cup and very much enjoyed it. He doesn’t get ice cream very often so this was a special treat.
For Mother’s Day we stayed in for breakfast, and Tony made some crepes. They were good, and it was a nice treat to not have to think about breakfast. Then in the early afternoon I went on a nice run and I realized that my shoes are getting a little worn. I think I’ve had them for about 2 years, but I am only a casual runner and I haven’t done any races in a while. So Tony watched Owen while I went out to get a new pair of running shoes from FrontRunner.
Everyone knows that moms like beer, well at least most of the moms I know do. One of our favorite breweries is Rockmill Brewery. Their beer is Belgian style, and the brewery sits on a nice plot of land that kids can roam around without bothering the other patrons. You can also bring your own food. We went on Sunday afternoon, and to our surprise it wasn’t that crowded. Other than it being a bit chilly outside, it was a nice time to enjoy some drinks and snacks. Owen even got to pet their cat.
