Mount Adams and a return to the gym.

This weekend Jeremy and I went to Cincy to celebrate our 8th anniversary. (Which is today!)

 Sunday we went on a walking tour of Mt Adams, Ohio.
 I love history, so it was really neat hearing all about this historic, beautiful town. This is the kind of town I would love to live in. Gorgeous, old town homes, cafes, bar and grilles, art museum, a playhouse, conservatory, a beautiful park, etc. I loved this town!

School built in the 1800's

What a view from the top!!

I want a house with a rooftop deck!
 One interesting story was about a tavern there in town.
  In the 50's, there was a customer that went there every night and would just drink tequila. And every single night he would get drunk, start fights, and destroy the place. And every night he would get kicked out and told not to return. But he kept coming back and drinking tequila and causing a ruckus.
 Finally the owner said maybe if he quits selling tequila there, that customer won't come back. So he quit selling it, and the customer never returned.
That customers name was Charles Manson. Crazy, isn't it?! That bar still doesn't serve tequila to this day.

 It was an amazing little town. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend the tour!

When we got to the hotel, I realized I forgot my running shoes! No, I can't run, but I was planning on going to the gym. But I didn't let that stop me!

It's been ages since I've been in a gym, and I realized how much I miss it! I really want to join one now.

View from our hotel. Fireworks after the Reds game.

Do you like history? 
Ever had to workout in your 'regular' shoes?


  1. What a perfect view :)
    I know exactly where you're at up there... we have a youth ministry conference up there right in that same area.
    Its such a neat little area there.
    I would have used the no shoes excuse to go buy another pair ;)
