Cincinnati 2013: Part 1

This post is bittersweet.  I spent all of my childhood summers in Cincinnati, OH visiting my paternal grandparents.  We usually spent a month there.  We had many friends, favorite places to eat, and traditional places to visit each summer.  This trip was on the sad side for me as it may be one of my last visits to a city I love so much.  We went to help clean out my grandparent's house to ready it for sale.  It was hard to watch as piece by piece, my grandparents' belongings were carried off in a stranger's hands at our estate sale.  When we weren't working hard, we tried out best to eat our favorite foods and make a few lasting memories of my childhood memories with our daughter.
