The Adventure Starts Here: Stanton Social and Birthday Party!

Stanton Social and Birthday Party!

Friday we made plans to go to dinner with our good friends Elena and Brian.  We had been trying to set up a dinner with them at this restaurant in the city that they had raved about... Stanton Social.  We finally decided to go Friday night, so after work I took the train in to meet Chris.  Of course though, since I have such bad luck with weather when I go in, it had to start pouring as I was driving to the Secaucus train station!  Originally we had wanted to head over to Eataly before dinner, but since it took longer to get a cab we didn't really have time.  It seems we've been talking about going to Eataly forever... I hope we finally make it there by the end of the summer!  Despite the rain, we made it to the restaurant and had an amazing time and the food was great.  It's tapas style so you order a bunch of things and it comes out where everyone gets a bite of each thing... I really can't say there was one thing I didn't like there.

I'm very glad we saved room for dessert... Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches and Milkshake Shots!

Saturday we wish we were able to go to the pool since it was so hot, but instead I had to go to the dentist.  After the dentist we headed to Chris' friend, Ken's house for his daughter Kora's 2nd Birthday Party.  Her older sister, Kyla, is Chris' god-daughter.   They had face painting, balloon animals, and then the kids made their own stuffed animals just like at Build-a-Bear.  It was a very fun birthday party!

Tomorrow we just plan to hit the pool... nothing new for the Flinns!  Next Saturday we leave on the Freel Family Cruise to Bermuda... so we will also be packing :)
