Well if you are not a sports fan and don’t live in Cincinnati, then you may not even know what I am talking about 🙂 but for a year the city has been planning for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game.
Let me say the city was crazy, I did go downtown a couple of days but if you didn’t get down there early to find a parking space, lot or garage it was nuts. So to say the least I just drove around and then went back across the river 😛
But the Home Run Derby was exciting since Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds won it this year!!!
All and all I think Cincinnati and Northern Ky. did an outstanding job hosting this years All-Star Game.
I did take some pictures, I have some here that friends took as well, but as I say it was an “All-Star Week”
There were are couple birthdays in our family and of course I made a few things, so check out my pictures and enjoy!!!
First of the birthdays was my little niece I made cupcakes 🙂
She likes presents and bubbles 🙂
Around town they made these mustaches statues here are few of them
Here are few of my souvenirs
Buskin Bakery made the cookies got to love that!!
Here are some pictures of the Red Carpet Parade,
the players start at their hotel and end at the ball park, all on red carpet 🙂

You can see on Todd’s hand the blisters from the Home Run Derby 🙂

My All-Star Pizza, half spinach & garlic
other half was spinach, Gorgonzola cheese,
sliced almonds, sliced strawberries and
balsamic glaze…so so GOOD!!!
The other birthday was my Mommy!! 🙂

Dinner – Braised Short Ribs, butter noodles and carrots 🙂
