FullSizeRender

What a gorgeous weekend weather wise…it seriously felt like it was spring. We had the windows and doors open to let the sweet fresh air fill the house, it was incredible. We stayed in on friday evening binge watching Shameless, then Saturday we went to the WestSide Market to get all the ingredients for having friends over for dinner that night and then yesterday we explored the new Ralph Perkins II Wildlife Center & Woods Garden at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. It was a great weekend.

Let’s just start by saying, if you haven’t been you’ve got to put it on your list of VERY cool places to visit. With or without kids, this new extension of the Natural History Museum is a breathe of fresh air…literally. The entire exhibit runs in a boardwalk-like loop outdoors…perfect for the little ones to run and the adults to enjoy some time with nature…and the ANIMALS!!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Looking forward to more winter-spring fun ahead…and yes, as of late I can’t get our little ninja to go anywhere without his cape. It’s sorta adorable and hilarious at the same time!
