I had not been back to where I grew up (Dayton, Ohio) since we moved away in 1999 after I graduated from high school. I have wanted to go back to see the old hood for quite some time now. We stopped by Marion's Piazza for lunch. Growing up, we had Marion's just about every week. One of my dad's best friend's was the manager for years at the Marion's by the Dayton Mall. A few years back it burned to the ground. We had not yet been to the rebuilt version. As soon as we walked in, it looked almost identical. Grams and I got their ham & sauerkraut pizza and pepperoni & sausage while Juliette ran around the game room. My brothers and I spent a lot of time doing just the same! We also stopped by Bill's Donuts and grabbed some donuts. Juliette scarfed down her sprinkle donut (can't say I blame her). We drove by Centerville High School where my brother Matt & I went...as well as Bishop Leibold where both my brother's and I went to elementary school. We did a drive by of the house we grew up in. I found the place in the driveway where us kids left our impression :) It was fun seeing everything...a blast from the past! p.s. We did get another sprinkle donut for Juliette for tomorrow morning!
Juliette running like a crazy woman at the Dayton Mall.
Bill's Donuts are as good as I remember them to be!

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jen and I am the proud Momma of Juliette Margot! We are so blessed to have a healthy and happy baby girl. Check back often and watch as Juliette grows...you never know what great adventures are ahead of us!
