Friday morning we met some of our playgroup moms at North Park Mall for a walk. We have been having a heat wave with temps in the 100's so walking outdoors is a no go right now. The doors open at 6:30am so we met there at 8:30, did a few laps and then let the kids run around while we had La Madeleine coffee. Yum! A nice way to start the weekend. We then met our friends Bao, Thomas, Ava and Tinsley at the grand opening of Yumilicious in Lakewood for free yogurt and t-shirts! They even had a DJ that Luna sat next too and was super impressed!
The next day we took it easy and had a nice visit from Coco. Sunday my dad came to town to visit and he was surprised to see her walking so well! We ate dinner at Papadeaux and Luna loved watching the king Lobsters in the tank. A 22 pound lobster was the biggest thing I have ever seen (that cost 300$)! Luna also loved the gifts she got from her grandpa and Sherry from Cancun- a cute t-shirt that reads, "somebody who loves me went to Cancun and bought me this t-shirt" and baby maracas from his recent trip.
The next day we went to where else? North Park again to cool off. Lunch at the Mermaid Bar at Neimans and Luna loved her chicken salad and avocado. I grew up eating at the Mermaid bar and loved sitting up at the counter back then- one day soon Luna will be able to do the same, but for now we sat at the regular table.
We then headed to the duck and turtle pond. This was also one of my favorite places as a child and used to run all over the place and up and down the ramps (aka big flower pots). And our last stop was the Disney Store. They have cool interactive areas for the kids. Luna is just now noticing them and I can only imagine how she will be in there in a few years. We will have to drag her out!
Then it was back home for a nap. Luna also showed us her amazing walking skills. She is almost there! Taking about 10 steps and then stops, still crawling a lot but so excited at her new skill. We then headed to dinner at La Duni and they were so accommodating for a baby. They brought her an endless supply of black beans (her faves) and then took her to pick out a big iced cookie (she had no clue what it was so I ate it :) Overall we had a nice weekend and Luna loved having her grandfather in town!!
We started this blog about 'nothing' a couple of years ago, but now it has turned into a blog about our precious daughter Luna, born on May 13, 2010! And then we welcomed baby Belle, 2 years later on May 23rd, 2012.
