Well, B and I survived the first week home with the baby! Honestly, I don’t know how single parents do it – this first week was challenging, tiring and rewarding – but I did it all thanks to B. Not sure how I’m going to deal when he goes back to work in a week … but I digress.
We had a great holiday weekend! Showing FW around town, hanging out with my parents (who were visiting again) for the weekend and of course having some family time for the holiday.
Friday started with a trip to the West Side Market – we showed FW around our normal shops.
And a trip to Gallucci’s for some wine and pizza supplies.
Because Friday night was pizza night! B made this awesome pepperoni and mushroom pizza with our new pizza stone. It was the perfect TGIF dinner!
Saturday morning was gorgeous, so we got in a short walk to the water and of course took some pics with FW.
My parents got in that afternoon and they were very excited to see him!
It stayed gorgeous out all day, so we needed the day with an evening out to dinner – burgers and wine outside downtown. My veggie burger was so good!
Sunday morning, B’s mom had everyone over for brunch. It was great to introduce the baby the rest of the family – and of course his cousins loved holding him again.
After brunch, we went for a walk around a nearby lake – it was great outside and it’s been so much fun sharing all our favorite spots with FW.
And for dinner? Sushi with my parents. Gotta love being able to eat raw fish again!
Monday started out lazy. I had been up with FW much of Sunday, so we hung low and then got in a walk around downtown before heading to B’s family’s house for the Fourth of July BBQ.
FW even got some bonding time with his great grandma. He is so lucky to have so many family members nearby and not only all of his grandparents but also a great grandma!
And that was it- a great Fourth of July weekend and FW’s first celebration!
