In the middle of many Midwestern winters, there is usually a day that reminds us that there is a light at the end of this dreary season. Today was that day.
Chris and I decided to make the most of this pseudo-Spring and take Leia out for brunch and a trip to the dog park. We ended up at Molly Malone’s in Downtown Covington, Kentucky. Molly Malone’s has great bar food, salads, and traditional Irish fare. It is also pet friendly so if you would like to catch a bite on a sunny day, bring your pooch and sit outside.

After lunch, we decided to take Leia on a walk across the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge.
The Roebling Bridge was built in 1861 to facilitate trade and transportation between Kentucky and Ohio. At the time it was built, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.
I can now say I have walked from Kentucky to Ohio!
The Roebling Bridge and Molly Malone’s made for a very fun afternoon after a quite difficult week.
Unfortunately, we weren’t the only people who crossed a bridge this week.
On Thursday, we had to say goodbye to our four legged son, Ditka. A couple of weeks ago, he developed a bruise in his ear which caused a large bump. Steroids didn’t decrease the swelling in his ear, so he had surgery to deflate the ear. Unfortunately, Ditka had a heart murmur, and went into congestive heart failure as a complication from the anesthesia late Thursday afternoon. He peacefully crossed the rainbow bridge Thursday evening.
Ditka was a loveable dog who provided lots of sloppy kisses to almost everyone he met. He was usually down for dressing up in costumes and playing fetch with anyone who had a toy. We miss him dearly.
