Birthday Weekend Adventures

Jazz came in town for a visit so I took off Friday to do something fun and prep for Cora's birthday.  It has been a little over a year since I'd seen Jazz, so it was really nice to catch up face-to-face and just hang out.  We ended up having to do a lot of birthday errands, but we still got a couple Cincinnati-themed adventures in.
Thursday night, we had our favorite Indian food, Krishna, then ran some birthday errands.  We hit up Michaels for some last minute crafting supplies and Target for balloons and cupcake mix.  We spent the evening hanging out, making cupcakes, and playing with Cora.

Friday morning, I woke up early and finished some birthday crafts and iced the chocolate cupcakes.  When everyone was awake, we had breakfast and set our game plan.  Jazz, Cora, and I headed down to Findlay Market.  I'd never been before, so it was fun to see what everyone always talks about.  We stopped by Dojo for some gelato then headed outside to eat and chat.



We walked around some more.  I also got a gyro for lunch and some hummus for the birthday party.  We stopped by Eden Park to eat, take pictures, and spend some more time outside.
We ran more birthday errands then headed home to make some carrot cupcakes and finish getting ready for the party.  The party was so much fun!  Cora had a great time.  She loved the cupcakes and watching her older cousins play around.  I'll have some pictures to post later this week, but here is a little teaser from Jazz:

Saturday was a lazy day.  We made some pancake breakfast and chilled around the house all morning.  Jazz left around noon.  Cora, Ben, and I spent the rest of the day napping and doing absolutely nothing.
Sunday, Cora and I made our rounds of Cincinnati.  We stopped by my parents for hanging out and lunch, visited Margaret and her family, and visited my Godmother before she leaves for the summer.

It was a great weekend and I'll be back later this week to share some more birthday pictures.  Also, check out some of Jazz's pictures from the weekend on her blog Coffee and Cleveland.
