Despite having an awful weather weekend (40s and rain), it was a GREAT weekend. Why? Because my parents (Nonna and Grandpa to FW) came to visit.
Friday, they got in earlyish, so they were able to join me for daycare pickup! We picked up FW and then got some pizza from our favorite place, Marotta’s.
FW even ate a whole slice!
Then it was time for some reading and relaxing before they put him to bed. I love how when my parents come to visit, they take the lead on most diaper changes and bedtime.
Saturday morning, we hit up the Zoo and Rainforest! It was cruddy and cold and wet, so we spent most of the time indoors.
FW probably watched this baby orangutan for at least 5 minutes. It was playing around with its mom and swinging around.
We then met up with B for lunch at a local deli/diner. I got some GREAT matzo ball soup and a HUGE corned beef sandwich.
This was the half sandwich. There was like 5 lb of meat on here.
That afternoon, while FW napped, my mom and I got pedicures!
Then, it was time for more reading.
Sunday was pretty low key. We enjoyed some breakfast at Luna with my parents before they got on the road back to NY.
And then in the afternoon, we did some work on the house (it’s never ending!). By we, I mean B did, while I entertained FW.
Oh, and FW took a nap in HIS BED, which never happens so I was pretty happy with that. He loves napping in the stroller and in the car, but barely in his bed (especially since he can just get up and get out of it, which is what he did at first).
AND while FW slept, the CAVS won! I’m hoping we get another great series in this year with a better ending than last season. Who’s with me?
That night we enjoyed dinner with B’s family. FW got in some good cousin time, as usual. I love that he loves hanging out with them!
Some questions for you:
- Was it cold near you again? Or did it feel like spring?
- Do you like matzo ball soup?

Looks like a fun weekend. It was chilly here but very sunny, which always helps!
I know your parents must cherish the visits with FW! I just took my granddaughter to the zoo recently. She loved all the zoo animals but was terrified of the regular birds and squirrels. We had a warm and sunny weekend here. I hope you’ll get the same this weekend. Thanks for linking!
