it’s supposed to be super hot this weekend.  i don’t really feel like fighting off a zillion people downtown for a taste of anything in that heat!  so for those of you not going to the taste of cincinnati, here are some other fun things to do out and about in the ‘nati:

for dog lovers (and i’m one), you can get your fix at the greater cincinnati memorial day dog show.   “More than 1,200 dogs representing 140 breeds compete for prizes, ribbons and titles. Dogs shown in 15 different rings. Obedience held each day. Best-in-show crowned at 4 p.m. each day. County fair-style food and beverage vendors.”  i’ve been to the butler county fair and it is a good time especially as an escape from the everyday grind.

for smaller kids, parky’s farm is having pioneer pastimes.   you can “Watch the sheep get sheared, try carding and spinning wool, dance around the maypole, pat baby farm animals and milk a goat. Ride a wagon to the garden and have fun in the playbarn.”  i used to take my kids to parky’s farm all the time when they were little.  time flies!

there’s one month left for you to enjoy the butterfly exhibit at the krohn conservatory.  it’s so much fun to put the nectar on your arm and have the butterflies land on you!  when else does that happen?

we are going to go to the zoo, a movie and the pool (if everything works out…) and then on monday we’re going to be in the blue ash memorial day parade!  we participated last year and had a blast.  please give us a “shout out” if you see us!    i can’t believe summer is here already!  my favorite time of the year for sure!  have a great, safe, fun weekend!
