The Fourth of July

This year we celebrated the Fourth of July with a small trip to Cincinnati with some of Rob's family. (The trip was Rob's brothers idea but we added our own touch to it.) We visited the Newport Aquarium on Friday night, had dinner at Jax Grill and then briefly visited the Game Works Arcade. We had a great time at the aquarium. Rob and Keaton both loved the sharks.

On Saturday, July 4th, we got up and headed over to the Great American Ballpark for the Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals game. (The first MLB game for Connor and Keaton.) The weather was a bit rainy to say the least. Thankfully it wasn't stormy and our seats were covered. We were able to watch the game without getting drenched like many of the other fans.

It was Bruce Bobblehead day at the Great American Ballpark. We each got to bring home our very on Jay Bruce bobblehead. Bruce displayed excellent defense from his right field position during the game. Here is a picture of Connor showing off his new Reds cap and his bobblehead.

Although I didn't sleep too well (Connor and Keaton were too excited to calm down quickly at the hotel and Keaton got up way before daylight) we still had a good time.
