Anyways to get back to our trip in 2012, Danny and I headed down to Cincinnati and bought tickets to see the Reds play the Cards. This is a huge rivarly and it was fun being a part of it. It was a sold out game and we barely got tickets. We also met his parents at the game since they are only an hour away and they are huge reds fans too. We got to see them at the beginning of the game and grab something to eat, but then we went to our seats to watch the game. The Reds ended up winning which was good for Danny and Reds fans everywhere since they were nearing the playoffs.

That night we headed out to eat and out for drinks on the water. Since Cincinnati is right on the river, there are a lot of resturants near or on the water. We went to Don Pablos for dinner and then went to a bar actually on a boat. It was so much fun and we talked through a lot of things. We were newly engaged (about a month) so we talked a lot about the future. One thing in particular that I remember talking about that night was what we were going to name our dog. We always knew we would get a dog and Danny and I often have the future talks, so it was not out of the ordinary. That night we decided when we got a dog, we would name him Yogi. 9 months later we held true to our promise and adopted a pup that we named Yogi.
It was a great weekend in Cincinnati and we are hoping to go back soon to visit. It helps that we have good friends that just moved to Cincinnati this past spring that we need to visit! Also, we love watching the Reds and I'm excited to see them in DENVER in a few weeks to play the Rockies!
