Adam and I were invited to Lori & Alex's wedding in Cincinnati for November 10th. We decided to make a whole weekend out of traveling to the other side of Ohio.
On Friday night we stayed with Michelle and Jim in Columbus. We went to Cap City for dinner, played Nirtz at their apartment and went to Tasi for breakfast the next morning. We had a delicious meal at both places. Cap City is a fine diner. I got a yummy chicken sandwich and Adam got the fried chicken dinner. At Tasi we both got the Sausage Gravy over Biscuits.. because we love them and Michelle claimed them to be better than Boyd's. They were very good, but I still like Boyd's a tad bit more mostly because it was the first place I'd ever had them, and it changed my life. Nirtz is a card game that I am horrible at. I will not explain it to you, and I may try to avoid playing it again. It started out fun then I realized I sucked and I'm a bit of a sore loser.
On Saturday we drove the rest of the way to Cincinnati. We got to the church early and got pretty good aisle seats for the ceremony. It was a beautiful Catholic ceremony. The bride and groom looked amazing! After the ceremony we checked in our hotel room, had a couple glasses of wine and jumped on the shuttle to the reception. The cocktail hour was very nice with an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, live music and a cute slide show of the bride and groom. Around six o'clock the wedding party arrived so we found our table which had a great view of the dance floor. We had a delicious dinner of salad, stuffed chicken, red skin potatoes and green beans. They quickly got the party started after dinner with the cake cutting, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and bridal party dance. We didn't get to participate in the bouquet toss or garter toss, but they had the anniversary dance! Being married for only a year and half kept us in the dance just longer than the bride and groom. But someday we'll be the last ones standing. :) Then there was lots and lots of dancing. Alex, the groom, wrote and sang a beautiful song to Lori, the bride. I haven't ever seen him perform live before, and he was very talented. I loved it. :) Lots more dancing and celebrating continued. At the end we took the shuttle back and went straight to sleep. (Some idiot burned popcorn at 2AM and it took the hotel 20 minutes to turn off their smoke alarm... and the burned popcorn smell filled our room.. it was horrible)

Sunday morning we met Tim, Liisa and their baby Camden at Perkins for brunch. It was our first time meeting Camden, and he's already one! He was super cute, and I'm glad we finally met him. Tim and Liisa are moving to NYC so it was nice being able to see them before they leave. Although it will give us a good excuse to visit NYC. (my camera died.. so no pictures :( )

The drive back home wasn't too bad mostly because it was such a nice weekend. I'm glad we got to see so many people that we rarely see. :)
