Another great summer weekend filled with food, fun, drinks and family has come and gone. Why do summer weekends go so fast?
I know, rhetorical question. But seriously, even though we got hit with some rain for what feels like he first weekend in forever, we still managed to enjoy our time in Cleveland by celebrating a birthday, enjoying some BBQ, celebrating Cleveland Pride, running and more.
We started Friday night with drinks and BBQ at Mabels to celebrate B’s brother’s birthday. Look at all that BBQ meat!
It was a great night out on E 4th street – it was hot and humid but the patios were getting full.
Saturday morning started with this little guy. And this guy. We of course had to watch the Olympics now that the track & field events have started!
When he went down for a nap, I hit the gym for 4 sweaty miles. It was already upper 80s and a bazillion percent humidity so I decided to stay inside and watch Mr. Robot while on the treadmill for a little. The gym was steamy also, but I’m glad I stayed inside and had my water bottle.
Then, it was time to head to Cleveland Pride! FW had the perfect onesie to celebrate.
The weather held up so we also ended up eating outside on the patio of Rebol, the new spot in Public Square. It was really good – I made my own bowl with their noodles and poke tuna.
That afternoon/evening it stormed on and off, so we took it easy. B picked up some dinner supplies at Gallucci’s – it was the Feast of the Assumption after all – and made us pizza for dinner. We finally broke out one of the “good bottles” of wine and enjoyed that as well. And some meat and cheese. A perfect Saturday night 🙂
Sunday morning, FW and I watched a little of the Olympics women’s marathon and then the three of us headed out to try out the new jogging stroller! We went to a nearby trail and logged 4.25 miles, taking turns holding the stroller at different times. I’m not going to lie, running with the stroller is hard! It was the first time B and I had run together since the race we did when I was 38 weeks pregnant, I’d it was great to be out there was him again.
We followed the run with some pastries and kombucha. Because that’s what I like to do on Sundays 🙂
That afternoon, we hit up the outlets for some shopping! We were there until they closed and then we picked up sushi for dinner. Yes, I have sushi just about every week now that I’m not pregnant any more. It’s great!
Some questions for you:
- Are there any foods you eat once a week or so? Yes, we eat pizza and/or sushi at least once a week 😉
- Do you like sushi? What’s your favorite?
Per usual, I’m linking up with Erin, Katie and the weekly wraps.

you guys always do such fun things! All of that food looks so good!`
I bet running w a stroller is a challenge. I work at a sushi and seafood bar and we have the best sushi. I always end up taking some home w me.
Wow, that is convenient! Then you always know what is good and get to try new things!
I bet running with a stroller makes you a super strong mama runner!! Mmm and now as always when I come to your blog I want some good eats…love sushi!!
It was rough- i dont know how people do it with a big kid! I think my firm was off too- I’m sore today!
All the food looks delicious! I love some good BBQ. We usually have pizza or pasta night once a week, gotta indulge in some carbs every so often 😉
Running with a stroller sounds like a big adjustment. Your little guy is so so cute!!
Seeing your plate from the BBQ place reminds me we’ve really been enjoying dinners at Dicky’s a chain food place here. I’m not that much on BBQ foods so I always get their chicken breast and man is it good! I regularly eat Salmon, either out or cooked at home, it is a favorite of mine.When we go to a sushi place I usually stay safe with the hibachi.
I hoped B enjoyed his new ride. My hats off to you for running with a stroller. I think with a little practice, it’ll feel perfectly natural. I have been smoked by Mamas pushing strollers at races too! LOL. I usually don’t order sushi. Our weekly favorite is probably Thai food. Or Mexican. Or both! Thanks for linking, Melissa!
yum!!! and congrats 🙂
