out and about

Ah-mazing. I don't think I opened my computer once this weekend. Reading, walking, playing, cooking, and a mini nap in the sun. Whew, it felt good to shut off and just spend some down time with my family of three. Our big Friday night out consisted of a toys-r-us run and dinner at the Schwaben House. We were home by seven. Yawn, but it's the only way we can get out for dinner with the Moosh. So a jar of baby food, a bib, some toys, and we're set. And when all else fails, she loves a simple straw. I put a little water in there and she opens up just like a baby bird.

Greenville was blessed with sunshine and a breeze so we spent as much time as possible outside. We had a playdate of sorts with a friend. Since we don't do a whole lotta playing yet we watched little Keller climb & run about the playground. Little boy hands playing in the dirt and constantly on the move while his momma trailed behind. Me oh my, things sure do change when a baby is mobile!

On Sunday, after a lazy morning of hanging in the backyard, we went to a cookout. Our host had a great spread and some wildflowers on the table.

All wonderful except you know who was sorta cranky. She wanted to be held or fed or entertained in some fashion the whole time. Big babycakes. Then right when dinner was served she had a dirty diaper that got all over clothes. Lovely timing. And did I have an extra set of clothes in the diaper bag? Of course not. Gosh, weren't we the perfect party guests! No, nobody batted an eye. We borrowed a baby shirt and then enjoyed a great meal on the porch. Perfect ending to a spring weekend.


  1. Looks like a fun weekend!

    We've learned too that we can go out to eat--- just have to be home by 7. Early bird special!

  2. Miriam was a doll. The yard is supposed to be finished by Monday or Tuesday so you will have to come back!
