Cleveland Rocks!

We spent last weekend visiting some of our favorite friends who live in Cleveland.

Hi Colette! Hi Mike! Hi Finn! Hi May!

Mike took us on a tour of his work-place, which happens to be a firehouse since he is a Cleveland City firefighter and all. You can just about imagine the bliss that ensued in Ethan's world :-) And since Mike's place is down on the river, there was also a fire boat!

It was hard to capture his joy on camera since he NEVER STOPPED MOVING, plus there was a glare in almost every shot. But we got a few...




One of my favorite moments was visiting the West Side Market and meeting Dennis Kucinich there. (He's actually quite handsome in person.) Taking in all the sights and smells at the market made us feel even more excitement for the move that we are about to make. I think we're ready for city living.

It's going to be such an ADVENTURE!

I agree, I think you are all ready for city living. Ethan looks like he is having so much fun! I am glad you all had such a nice time and a chance to get away and just play.
XOXO

Little boys and firetrucks are definitely a joy to behold. My three year old runs from window to window every time one goes by (we live on a busy street). When they're not on a run, they'll occasionally stop in front of our house and wave at him. He's on a cloud for several minutes after that!

Best wishes on your new adventure!

What a fun trip! And soon you'll be there full time, how great!

Hetha said...

Actually Kyla, we're headed to Cincinnnati. There's a nice rivalry between those towns that I'd be remiss not to point out :-)

Sheer bliss! He is so adorable- boys definitely love their trucks! Makes me want to take a trip to Cleveland (about 3 hours away from us). It would be nice to get out of the country and into the city for a day! Good luck with the move to Cincinatti- I'm sure it will be great for all of you!

Eileen said...

Happy Easter my friend!! I hope you and your family have a great day.
XOOXOXO

So CUTE! Glad you had a great time and that you are excited about your move.

It was 90 degrees here today, so it's weird to see Ethan in a winter coat. I'm considering the air conditioner for sleeping tonight since it's hard to breathe when it's hot!

The weather is WEIRD.

Happy Easter, dear friend!

You can tell Ethan had a blast! Glad you all had a good time!

Jennifer said...

I'm so excited for you! I wish we could up and move to a new town...I need the change badly!! Keep us updated!
I love the pictures...as usual! :)

I miss city living, too--it will be wonderful for all of you.

Your Ethan is a total Cuteness Euphoria triggering object.
