Katie's 26 Birthday!!!

This past Saturday was my beautiful wife's 26th b-day, so I planned a little get away for the both of us. We woke up Saturday morning and I went out and got some Jubillee donuts and coffee for Katie and I. It's a tradition that Katie has always gotten a donut on her birthday, even since she was a kid. Never the less we ate them up and here is what was left..

After that, we dropped Braily off at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a sleep over. This was the first time in 9 1/2 months that Braily would be without us for the night, so we were a little nervous, but knew she was in good hands.

So, I took Katie to Little Italy in Cleveland. For those of you who don't know where that is, it is on the east side about 15 min out from downtown. They were having an Art Walk Weekend in this little part of town that has lots of artists and Italian restaurants and shops. So you grab a coffee and a peperoni roll, as we did, and walk the area shopping and listening to Italian music from every shop. We didn't buy anything but it was very cool to see. We did stop at a little cafe where Katie introduced me to "gelato" which is like ice cream but really creamy.. i guess. Katie ate it when she was in Spain. Here is a pic of my first taste mmmm.
And Katie mad that I took the first bite! Ahhaa
We then headed to our Hotel downtown and relaxed before dinner. Katie got all dolled up and we headed to the House of Blues for dinner, and then to the movies to see Sex and The City, Kate's favorite. We had a great time downtown at night and sleeping in the next morning. It was a great little getaway!!
