We Love Grandparent Time

FW got an extra dose of Grandparent Time this weekend – he spent Friday night with B’s mom and the rest of the weekend with my parents!

I neglected to take any photos Friday night with B’s mom, but FW got to spend some time with her because B and I had tickets to the Indians playoff game!!

It was a great night for some baseball and seasonably warm (80 degrees!). Oh yeah, and we won!

We followed the game with some local thin crust pizza. I love Pizza 216’s dough.20161007_205216

Saturday we woke up and it felt like fall was here! We decided to take my parents away from downtown for the day and spent some time in Burton, Ohio for their Oxtoberfest AND apple butter festival.

We watched people make apple butter and of course ought some to go.

After the festival, we made quick stop at Ohio wine country. I love Spring River for its views and I’m glad my parents got to check it out.

We started Sunday with a run (faster than my previous runs!) trip to the Market, a walk around Ohio City and brunch at Le Petit Triangle.

My mom and I split the lemon curd French toast and the Croque Madame. They were so so good!

B also got this fancy coffee drink. I got to have the whipped cream but he enjoyed the rest of it which had grand marinier and whiskey I think. 20161009_114952

After that it was time to say goodbye to my parents – which is always so sad. Luckily we were headed right to Sofia’s cross country meet so that helped keep my mind off of them leaving. FW was thrilled to cheer on his cousin at her race. 20161009_143056

It was fun watching the kids run!

And then it was already nearly time for Sunday family dinner with B’s family. We ended the weekend with a fall meal – beef stew and apple crisp. And of course, milk for the little guy. Cheers to a great week!

Some questions for you:

  • Did you enjoy any fall meals? What’s your favorite fall meal?
  • How do you like your eggs?

I’m linking up with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

  1. Yay Go Tribe! I love visiting wineries in the Fall, the scenery is always so beautiful. And my favorite Fall meal is probably chili, especially on a cold night.

  2. Yall always have the most fun! The festival with the parents sounds just delightful! I love apple butter, too much actually! Oh and that coffee drink B had, yes right up my ally!
    To answer your questions, We had corn chowder this past weekend It was a new recipe but really good and my eggs must be scrambled well! No runny eggs for me!

  3. I love apple butter on a warm biscuit, ’cause I am southerner you know. Grandparent time is the best thing ever! And I can say this because I am one! I prefer my eggs scrambled with cheese. Thanks for linking, Melissa!
