I love weekends with family! And this weekend was one of those weekends, as my parents were able to come into town to visit. The last time they were in Cleveland was October, so it had been some time!Friday afternoon coincidentally was a grandparents’ event at FW’s school, so they got to see him in his element as he performed a song and then they watched a puppet show.And then Friday night included pizza from our favorite local place – Marottas! They had been closed for renovations, but they reopened about a week ago. So yes, this was our second week of pizza pickup from them. I love roasted garlic on the pizza!Saturday morning, the whole family walk to breakfast at Luna. Their almons croissants are amazing.Followed by a little time on the playground. The weather was perfect!In the afternoon, we celebrated our friend June’s first birthday. She had a kindermusik class, and both LM and FW had a blast!
Sunday morning came too quickly. After some bagels, my parents were on the road again and it was time to say goodbye.
As they drove back, we had a relatively low key day. We did not get in any of our usual weekend chores – no grocery shopping, meal planning, cleaning, etc. Instead, I caught up on work and then got outside for a run.
That night, we celebrated B’s sister Mary’s birthday. That ends what seems like a month of birthday celebrations for B’s family! FW will be disappointed not to sing Happy Birthday at next week’s dinner.
Questions for you:
- How do you handle grocery shopping? Do you go once a week or when you need to something?
- What’s your go-to bagel?

Looks like a great weekend! I usually go shopping twice a week! We have a big family so we go through things quickly!! Plus I am never quite sure how the week will go! I feel like I can plan maybe 3 days ahead 🥰
Sounds like you had an amazing time with your family. That pizza looks delicious!
That pizza from Marotta’s looks amazing! Looks like you had a great weekend with your parents.
