Vacation Recap: Cincy Tennis

Aug 23, 2016
Happy Monday! I decided to take last week off from blogging. I was just wrapped up in the Olympics and busy getting things ready for our vacation!


Nick and I headed out for Cincinnati on Wednesday after work. We had tickets to the pro tennis tournament Western and Southern Open. This was our second year going to the tournament. We loved it so much last year, we decided to go for three days instead of just one this year! I was hoping to see Andy Murray (like I did last year) play coming off of his SECOND Olympic Gold Medal.



Nick and I actually stay with friends who live in Kentucky, right over the Ohio border. It's great because we get to take Scout on vacation with us!


Thursday, Friday, and Saturday was filled with tons of tennis matches at the Linder Family Tennis Center in Mason, OH, We had sunny days with temps above 80 on Thursday and Friday. We saw countless matches and got to match some big names practice!




Stevie Johnson (USA), Rafael Nadal (ES), Simona Haelp (ROU)


Jamie Murray (GRB), Jo Wilfred Tsonga (FRA), Stan Wawrinka (SUI)


Marin Clinic (CRO), Martina Hingis (SUI)


Bernard Tomic (AUS), Kei Nishikori (JPN)



Milos Raonic (CAN)



Bryan Bros (USA)


Garbine Muguruzu (ESP), Dominic Thiem (AUS) Karolina Pliskova (CZE)



Semi Final Saturday was pretty soggy. There were some delays in play, but it was still super fun because our friends came with us and I got to see Andy Murray practice and play!



Waiting out the rain, keeping ourselves entertained...





I really enjoyed the Andy Murray vs. Milos Raonic semi final.


On Sunday we explored Fort Thomas, Kentucky and ate some amazing pizza at LaRosa's. Our friends took us to a donut/ice cream shop called Top This where I ate an amazing donut sundae!





We headed home on Monday which meant back to work on Tuesday, plus chores and grocery shopping! Bummer, but I am looking forward to being a part of Chaotic Goddess Swaps' Books and Bloggers Swap for the THIRD TIME! Can't wait!


I can't remember the last time we took vacation, so this one was much needed. Hopefully the next one will be sooner rather than later!

  7. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
