We had a fun time celebrating Sophia's best buds, Jack & Luke's, 4th birthday. And despite the slight turn in the weather, the kids all went swimming and warmed up in the hot tub.
|Happy Birthday Jack & Luke!|
|Bundled up and happy!|
|See what I mean when I say Kalista likes to eat?|
And no Mom, I didn't really let her eat with a knife.
Nor did I let her eat this huge piece all at once. : )
I promised to take Sophia out for "pantycakes" while Daddy was away. So on Sunday morning we headed off to Mesa Cafe for breakfast. I actually wasn't sure where to go for pancakes. I normally don't take the kids out for a sit-down breakfast. I would have rather gone to Jeannine's, Renaud's or Fresco's. But none of these places had pancakes; just waffles or french toast if at all. Oh the sacrifices we make for our little ones!
|Can you believe this was off the kid's menu?!|
Sophia did not finish her "pantycakes" but she did
polish off the bacon! Definitely Daddy's girl!
Sunday was a little bit of a sad day. Our long time babysitter, Sarah, watched the kids for the last time while I attended an event my friend Talina hosted. I can't believe Sarah has known us since Sophia was 2 months old! What a pleasure it has been having her watch our kids. And to think I was so nervous posting my own add on Craigslist to find a sitter. What a gem we found!
|We'll miss you Sarah!|
Sophia really started to miss her daddy come the 4th day. She didn't cry but I could tell that she was a little sad. I was missing Daddy too. But we did our best at putting on our happy faces and maybe a few silly ones as well. *Wardrobe Disclaimer - If you have kids; especially girls, you know when to pick your battles. : )
Aside from the busy days, late night nibbling and aperitifs, I did manage to do a little shopping. Online is so much easier than schlepping two kids around. Don't worry David...I didn't go overboard ; )
|What's that term? "Happy wife, happy life?"|
