The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday


It was really nice out last Saturday, so after Noah's nap, we took him out for a walk around town.  We stopped by the grocery store and then went to the new Carlos' Bakery (Cake Boss) that just opened!  Thank goodness there wasn't a line out the door (like there is in Hoboken and there was on opening day).  We still had to wait a while to order, but it gave us time to figure out what we wanted.  We ended up getting quite a bit… and it was all super yummy!


On Sunday, we went over to Chris' parents' house.  Chris' great uncle and aunt and their son were visiting for the day.  Chris' brother, Justin, was also there with his dog, Louie.  Noah was fascinated by Louie, and loved giving him his toys and putting out his hand for him to lick it.


On Tuesday, I ran some errands with my mom.  We went to Target, Michaels, and Pottery Barn Kids.  I got a bunch of stuff for Noah's Easter Basket as well as some craft supplies.  A friend and I are planning to do our own little "art class" each week with our boys.  I've been having fun coming up with Easter themed ideas :)  Noah enjoyed himself as long as we let him hold all the stuff we were buying.  I think this kid is ready for Easter!


Last night, I went to see Divergent with some moms from my MOMS Club.  This month we read the book, and I suggested that we see the movie as well and then discuss how we liked the book and the movie :)  While the movie was different than the book, especially the end, I really liked the movie.  The actor who plays Four is gorgeous!  I could stare at him for hours!  While I really enjoy getting out for an evening, Noah doesn't do well at bedtime when I'm out.  He loves hanging out and playing with Chris, but he views me as the bedtime person.  So let's just say that Noah was still awake when I got home at 10pm.  He was clearly just waiting for me to get home, because he gave me the biggest hug when I walked in and then immediately fell asleep as I rocked him.  


Noah and I went to a play date at a nearby YMCA on Wednesday.  Last time we went to a play date like this, he couldn't even walk on his own.  He had so much fun this time!  Right after I took this picture, I was told that "technology was not allowed here".
