Weekends with the Baby

B and I had another great weekend with FW. It’s funny, I thought our weekends would be much different after the baby was born. And they’ve been different – that’s for sure. But we’re still getting to do a lot of the same things we did before FW, just with him along with us! And I know that this will change as he gets older and more mobile – but in the meantime, we’re enjoying bringing him along.

Friday morning started out with smoothies from Restore. FW wasn’t impressed but B and I enjoyed an early walk before he headed into the office.20160729_092022

Friday evening included a stop at the Asian Night Market for dinner and to meet up with friends.  FW definitely approved 🙂


Saturday morning started early – FW had his newborn photoshoot! B snapped the photo below and I can’t wait to see (and share some of) this photos!Screenshot_20160730-122935

We dodged some rain and walked over to Public Square for the RNC Convention thank you party. There was live music and free ice cream.20160730_134712

Free Wildberry Crumble for me 🙂 IMG_20160730_135002

AND FW got to meet Slider for the first time. He wasn’t impressed. 20160730_135901

It was also LCBS! We were creating sea shell crafts at Cuoghi’s. I didn’t get to take a photo but of course (as usual) she had an amazing spread – watermelon salad, orange salad, chips and guac and salsa, beet and lentil salad, egg salad and so much more. Oh and I’m so sad I didn’t get a pic of the desserts – Nicole made some amazing raspberry bars and Cuoghi’s ice cream cupcakes were awesome.

I did get a pic with Emily and Jack, though. Isn’t he a stud? (watermelon hefeweizen not pictured)IMG_20160730_175534 IMG_20160730_183659

B and I had plans to take a walk Saturday night and grab dinner in the Flats, but FW wasn’t cooperating. After a massive eating session (almost 3 hours straight), it was after 8 and we were starving. We picked up some pizza from Pizza 216 and it did not disappoint! It was pretty fabulous.IMG_20160730_215328

Saturday morning, B took FW to his old softball fields to watch some games while I had some me time. Of course I used it to go for a run! It was my first run outside and while it was hot, humid and way harder than it used to be, I am so glad I got out there. I had to stop and take a photo (well, I had to stop …) along the way.


And a sweetie selfie. My face was the color of my shirt. 20160731_105013

AND along the way, I caught a glimpse of Hillary’s bus and Secret Service! I waited for about 45 min but she didn’t come out so I unfortunately didn’t get to see her though – but I can pretend, right?20160731_094616

That afternoon,  B and I took a walk to the Flats with FW. It was a hot day, and we stopped for drinks along the way.


We ended the day with ribs and cassata cake at B’s parents’ house. A good end to a good weekend!

Questions for you:

  • What’s your favorite summer beer or drink?
  • How often do you eat pizza? We tend to have it about once a week on the weekend! Sometimes homemade, sometimes takeout.

And because it’s Monday, I’m linking up with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.
