Sure, Memorial Day may be the start of Summer, but Summerfair is what really gets the party started!

Hey! That's me, getting my art on!

For 43 years now, Summerfair has been making Cincinnati a more beautiful place. Bringing together all types of artist and artistry with eager recipients like me, it is a jewel in the crown of the Queen City.

Last year, with P being older we took full advantage of their Youth Arts Rocks! area.  We designed matching family t-shirts that we are still wearing today.  P is already counting down the number of projects she plans to do this weekend. And I’m really looking forward to the first-time ever 2D/3D mixed media art category – a whole new art form to enjoy!  The details:

Summerfair runs Friday (2pm-8pm), Saturday (10am-8pm) and Sunday (10am-5pm) – June 4th, 5th and 6th

Your $10 admission price includes parking and children 12 and under are free!  And you can purchase tickets online and print them at home if you’d like, just click here.

There is no way to see all that Summerfair has to offer in one day, so f0r the true enthusiasts, Summerfair offers a three-day pass for only $15 – but you have to purchase this before 2pm on Friday, June 4th

So make plans to join the fun.  I have two FREE tickets to raffle off to one lucky winner.  Just leave a comment here ASAP – I’ll draw tomorrow at 6pm so I can get the tickets to you in time to enjoy all there is to do this weekend!

My name says it all – OHIO is the place to be for just about everything!  So I’m thrilled to let you know in honor of National Tourism Month, Family Friendly Cincinnati is partnering with Warren County Convention and Visitors Center to make Ohio THE place to be for summer getaways. 

Gas prices, airline gouging – times are tough for vacation planning these days.  Luckily, Cincinnati folks have a ton of attractions just up the road…or down! Warren County is giving away tickets to just about everything Warren County has to offer – The Beach, Kings Island, Ohio Renaissance Festival and so many more.  There are twenty more days of winning – so what are you waiting for?  There is a new giveaway every day in May – be sure to fan Warren County’s Facebook page to check the winners list. On Twitter? Follow them and Family Friendly Cincinnati for daily reminders so you don’t miss a day of fun!

In addition to the daily giveaway, there is a GRAND PRIZE – an overnight visit to Great Wolf Lodge.  How cool is that?  To enter for the bonus giveaway, simply follow the directions on that FFC post. 

Go to Family Friendly Cincinnati to enter today and everyday, or just click my button to the left!  Good luck and happy travels!

And I thought *my* cooking skills were lacking?

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!


Go ahead, GET LIPI!

Why get so riled by the events of the world, you ask? Because…

"Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate." Charlotte Gray
