What I did over the Holiday weekend!

O.k. here it goes! A well over due post. All day Saturday and Sunday, while sitting on the deck in the hot sun, I did something that I haven't done in years. Read a book. I use to do all the time when I lived in PA but since I moved to Ohio I have always seemed to find other things to do. I forgot how much I love to read. This book was given to me by my mother. She thought I would like it and I did. It's one of those kind of books you can't put down. Always wondering what is going to happened on the next page you turn over.

Monday the hubby and I went to a town not to far from where I live. "Chargin Falls". People have been telling me that I need to make a trip out there and check it out. Well I have lived in Ohio for 5 years now and I just never really found the time to go. But better late than never I say. This weekend they had the Blossom Festival. We seem to of missed all the excitement from that though. It looks like they had finished all the festivities over the weekend. But when we went there on Monday you would not of thought so. The place was so crowded with on lookers like me. I have to say I wish I would of experienced this town a little sooner. It is so cute. I love all the older homes and the downtown area. If you like shopping then this is the place for you. Lots of upscale gift shops and tons of fancy boutique shopping. There are several small restaurants that you can stop and have lunch or dinner. Here are two business cards I pick up from some stores I liked. These are just two.

This store was one of my favorites. Their clothes were so cute. I didn't get to hit all the clothing boutiques yesterday. But next time I will for sure. Great prices at this store. If you are looking for something really unique and different, then buy clothing from a store like this one. You wont see yourself coming and going like you would if you buy something from lets say, "American Eagle".

Here is a menu I picked up from Rick's Cafe. The menu looks great but they weren't open for lunch yesterday.

I would have to say the biggest attraction for this town would have to be the beautiful waterfall. Hence why the town is called,"Chagrin Falls". Why is it that people are fascinated by waterfalls. I think it a combination of things. I love the sound it makes.

This is a restaurant that over looks the Falls. When my sisters come in October I will defiantly take them to this town and I will have dinner here. Check out the outdoor bar. The fireplace and seating area look so inviting. I can see myself sitting there with a cocktail in hand visiting with the sisters!

Check out this picture of a man feeding the geese with his son. I couldn't believe how close he got to them. They really seem to have no fear of people. Look out if you don't have anything to offer, you might be lunch for them.

I love this picture of all the bikes. One thing I wish I had was a Harley. My hubby use to have one but he sold it before we met. Maybe again someday.

This popcorn shop is a local hangout. Several people say that you must check this place out.

Last but not least to finish the trip. We were driving back home when I looked out the window and saw this Momma Dear and her little baby wading in the creek. It was such a site. Something you don't just see everyday.

Overall what a great weekend. Got to spend some quality time with Chuck and visited a new local town spot. A place I am dying to go back!
