We drove into Cincinnati on Friday and luckily were able to meet up with one of my best friends and bridesmaids, Kaela and her fiance Brad. This was the first time seeing them after they got engaged and was so special to sit down with them and catch up on everything that had changed in our lives. Kaela used to live in Cleveland, but moved to Cincinnati once she met Brad and they started dating. It was great to see both of them. After hanging out with Brad and Kaela for awhile, they went home to prepare for the weekend and Danny and I checked out a bar near our hotel called Frickers. It was a fun place and the perfect end to our first night in Cincinnati.
The next day, we decided to explore the city. I have been to Cincinnati numerous times over my lifetime and Danny has lived in Cincinnati, but we still like to see the attractions. One of those attractions being Newport Aquarium which is technically in Newport, Kentucky. The aquarium is one of the best and is always great to see all of the sea creatures. We saw the shark tank and I even pet sting rays and starfish.

During the game, Danny and I were able to go to the Reds pressbox to visit his old bosses from when Danny worked for the Reds. Rob and Larry were very nice and even showed me the intern wall of fame where I saw Danny's picture from 2010. Even though the Reds lost, it was a fun night at the ballpark.
