Year Of Dates 2014–June


Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a busy week around here and therefore it has flown by! I am so looking forward to a weekend mostly at home because there are a few projects that I want to do.

Even though our May date was a big fail, Ryan had planned June so that it was impossible not to do!



It says, “Mmmmmm Can you smmeeeelllllllllllll what the Rock is COOKIN??? Hahahahahahaha yeah baby, it is the summer of no sleep, late night poopy diapers and a crying baby!!! Who has time to cook supper, lunch or breakfasts??? So, why not head down to Spark street, Ottawa have some ribs from Ribfest? A nice quick trip for someone else’s cooking?

Love Always

Your Hubby”

I was SUPER excited and super impressed by this date! The last time we went to Ribfest with Jilly  and the road washed out leaving us deserted on the wrong side and we couldn’t go home! Definitely a funny story now but had left a bitter taste in my mouth for Ribfest because I always associated it with this scary night!

It was time to create a new memory so we loaded up one Friday evening and got ready for some yummy food! 


We are so lucky to be only about an hours drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Ottawa where lots of amazing events take place! Sparks Street is plugged every June with stations having a cookout to compete for the best ribs, chicken, pulled pork and of course, sauce!


It was great having the stroller because the packs of people would just move out of the way for us! Smile 


We decided on Billy Bones and took our place in line smelling the yummy food as we waited about 10 minutes!


We ordered and received our food in about 1 minute and found a free bench to sit and enjoy our supper!

My plate that I chose was ribs, pulled pork, beans and coleslaw! Yum!


The food was SO YUMMY and I am glad we found a bench to sit and enjoy our meals! It was a beautiful night to have an outdoor supper! It was nice to sit back and “people watch” while enjoying each others company and BBQ feast.


It was a pretty busy night for Ribfest and could only park far away so we grabbed a couple drinks to wash down our meals and take a nice long stroll to the car. It was a good way to help walk off our very full bellies!

I don’t know why but I find this picture extremely sexy! Winking smile I just love to see my husband being a father. He insisted on pushing the stroller the whole time. I think it’s more because he doesn’t trust my driving! ha ha!


It was a super fun evening out with my love for a summer BBQ cookout that didn’t have to be cooked by me! We don’t get to travel to downtown often but it’s nice to get out to the “big city” every once in awhile. Ribfest is only for one week in June and I loved that this date had a specific calendar day picked out so we could plan our schedules to suit! It was a no fail plan!

Happy Friday!



  1. Our ribfest here in Columbus is next weekend, they always seem to have it on one of the hottest weekends in July but I'm hopeful that we can go. Looks like you had a great time!

  2. I don't know if i trust your driving the stroller either!! You have been known to jump medians and stuff....with a car....!! Have a good weekend!

  3. LOL - after Josh almost had a heart attack at the start of the parade when he thought the stroller was going to tip over, I can see why Ryan insists on pushing it ;) Glad you made good memories, I'm still not sure I'll ever return to Ribfest!!! haha!

  4. That is some yummy looking food. Sounds like a perfect evening :)
